No Time To Scratch....

Boy, when things get busy they sure do get busy. And I'm really bad at saying no to things. I don't like to let people down so when Sam asked me if I could custom quilt her quilt for her in 1 week of course I said "Sure thing, no problems". Now I'm in a real rush and having to bump all the quilts along the list. Oh well, it will be really nice once it's done and I have met another lovely lady to call a friend.
I will have photos of this quilt soon, but until then I have a couple of other quilts that I have just finished.

The first one is my wonky sampler. It is quilted and bound and ready for next weekends Central Coast Charity Quilt Show. I am doing a demonstration on improvised block construction, so if your in the area drop in and say Hi.

All finished...yay...


Yummy wavy quilting.Very simple but effective and fun to do.


I used 3 different colours to quilt it..orange, teal & baby blue...


The second quilt is a very special one. A good friend of mine has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. After a couple of surgeries she started chemo this week. I made her this quilt to let her know I'm thinking of her and if she wants she can take it with her to treatment.
It's made from a layer cake so it was really quick to put together. I had it pieced one day and quilted and bound it the next day. A great short notice quilt.
Hope you love it Kath...

I quilted it with a freehand allover swirl... I love it...


 This Heather Bailey Freshcut fabric was the perfect binding....


Hopefully I will have more photos tomorrow
Til then

Happy Quilting

Great to see your wonky quilt quilted and bound, it's really fabulous! Simple squares make beautiful quilts, I really like the layer cake you chose for your gift to your friend. I wish her all the very best through the times ahead.
