Jacobean Applique Quilt takes out Viewers Choice

Hello there everyone.  I realise it has been ages since my last blog, but on top of finally feeling great now, my computer is getting decidely dodgy.  Clever son is telling me it might be my hard drive and get your stuff backed up Mum. Oh well, it will happen.
Then we had to zip down to Wellington for the weekend to help said son and DIL look at a house. On the way we called in to the Dannevirke Quilt Show.  This is a small, but lovely show that has been held for many years.  I was thrilled to have three quilts in the show that I had quilted.
This lovely Jacobean Applique quilt was stitched by Anne Ingram, quilted by Yours Truly and won Viewers Choice.

Felicity's quilt looked so soft and pretty.

 Then I got stuck into my lovely friend Eve's Pretties Scrap Quilt as she is going to put it into the Open Weekend at Otane at the beginning of November.  It is a weekend where there are displays but also working exhibits of all the art and craft groups to show the public what happens and encourage new membership.  Here it is all ready to go.

It is quite a large quilt, so had difficulty taking a photo of the whole quilt.  I used So Fine 449, a lovely soft green that covered the colours well but didnt stand out too much on the cream.  Bottomline Sage green in the bobbin.

The pattern is called "Hollyhock." I dont use it a lot as it is quite intense for me to do.  It does look gorgeous though.

I shall leave it there for tonight and try to come back tomorrow with some more catch up happenings.

Take care and thank you for stopping by.

God bless,
