Auction Quilt

Finished the quilt I am making for the http://sunflowerfoundation.com.au/GalaDinner2012.aspx 
The quilt will be auctioned at the Dinner on June 9th.  Made from Kaffe Fassett Jelly Rolls  Bought 2 as Kaffe's Jelly Rolls only had 28 fabrics and I wanted a reasonable size quilt.  The quilt measure 158 X 170cms.  I machined quilted this one and I am pleased with the result.

Noticed a few stray cottons that I have to remove before delivery.   Now to do a Deb Layt wall hanging, started in a class 20th May nothing went right was too distracted, came home to find sister had experienced heart problems lucky she was in hospital at the time and early intervention saved her from a heart attack.

Baby Floor quilt

On May 5th I finished the top and backing for the expected babies floor quilt.  SMS'd the photos to daughter for her perusal.  She texted back better keep sewing M's baby arrived this morning around 6 am a month early.  So pull all stops out made label, basted, machined quilted, machined the binding pressed and the quilt was finished.  Gave it to daughter on Mothers Day for her to deliver it to M & C's little Emily Rose.  The quilt attracted a lot of ooh's and aah's at the Bistro were we had lunch when daughter showed it to the rest of the group, ladies from other tables were coming over for a look.

Today I am quilting a 1600 quilt in Kaffe Fassett fabrics to be auctioned in June.
