Todays post is about some flood relief quilts, I have machine quilted several for the Queensland Quilters , I am on my last one, someone has taken a lot of care with this quilt top. It has lovely batik fabrics, and is a type of sampler, lots of different block patterns, good piecing and good pressing. Whoever you are, you have done a good job. These fabrics are not cheap, and you have donated your time in making a lovely warm and cuddly quilt. It is a pleasure to quilt it. I am doing soft flowing lines in the blocks and a twirly vine up the sashings. Haven't worked out the border yet, but I will.
The purple thread gives a zing to these mostly warm orange blocks.
This is my bit of volunteering, a little more visible than doing school P&F things, which is a lot of work and not much thanks at the end - from some quarters.
Rewarding but sometimes hard work.
I am just warming myself up with this quilt, a masterpiece in the making is in my head...
