The continuing story ........
Now, who have we left???
This is Sue's. Made entirely from stash, it is for her soon to arrive potential step grandchild!!!(Yes, that is a mouthful!) It is mainly hand quilted. Well worth a click to look at more closely.
Christine was finishing a few things for her sister who is struggling a little with arthritis. Chris didn't think she would have any problem with sharing this beautiful quilt with you. It has been long arm quilted at a town about an hour from here.
Christine also had another finish to share........
I love the simple pattern and colours here. It is beautiful in real life.
On the day before I left I received some fabric from Jenni at Fairybread. The transit looked perfect for a single bed quilt for my Godson who turns 4 next month so I combined it with the shirt fabrics and went to work. He is one of 7 so I enjoy going to some extra trouble for him at birthdays and Christmas. His entire family(all 9) have the flu at present so are being fed by the neighborhood, lucky they like my soup!
Here it is in the wind at the beach, and with a few additions, here it is now.
Yes, I know everything I stuffed in bags at the end of the retreat needs a good iron and this also needs a red strip above the "Tracey version of Tonya's lettering" but I am not feeling that energetic, I will only have to iron it again in a week or two to baste anyway. It is a generous single bed size.
Need your advice on the next one. This pink and green baby quilt is from 2 scrap bags (i am going to get so many projects out of each scrapbag!) I like it without the ADA lettering and I like the ADA lettering by itself but I am not sure about them together. ADA could just become a name wall-hanging and the quilt could be separate
It is for the baby of one of the 3 sisters whom I spent a good few years babysitting in my teens. Megan gave birth to Ada 10 weeks early as a result of pre-eclampsia but she is going very well now.
Have another couple of my quilt tops still to show you from the weekend but Blogger is getting antsy so I will keep them for next time.
