Hi there my quilting friends...

This week has been a huge catch up week. After being a slacker in the school holidays, I am behind on my customer quilts. So I got my butt into gear and I have quilted all week, even this weekend.

The first quilt I finished this week was a custom for Jody at All About Sewing (the shop I love teaching at). The design is "Midnight Roses". It is a machine embroidery Block of the Month that Jody and Gail have been running this year at the shop. I can't wait to see them all finished.

Beautiful winter sunshine streaming into my studio....


I stippled the background of the embroideries, put a swirl in the sashings and did a feather and stipple border. (It's not quite finished here)...


 The embroideries are so vibrant...


Jody was really happy with it and that's one crossed off the ever growing list.

I have finished another two and half finished another this week. I'll have more about them later.

Thanks for looking and thanks to those patiently waiting for their quilts to be done...

Happy Quilting
Leanne xo

Your quilting is lovely. It doesn't hurt that the quilt top is so stunning - it's always good to quilt a nice top.
