A little random stitching

As in the last blog, I have been enthused.
I have been doing some random and not so random stitching.
A new group on Facebook OMG quilts has got me a little enthused, however I have projects to finish before I really get excited but I have had a little play.

A little stitching each day seems to soothe the soul and make me happier!
A small quiltlet, random, but fun stitching. 3 small pods.

The new Down Under Quilts, which features a project by me 
the cushion project

The quilt inspired by the cushion project, its on the design wall, waiting for further inspiration, I rarely deign a quilt form start to finish, they evolve as they grow!

This week I have been madly quilting, I seem to have found the lost spark!

This is a quilt top made by my friend Kate, I have nearly finished the quilting, although the border is looking a little lost at the moment, it has been fun, and has kept me sane! The feathers are soothing

almost quilted

some of Pauline's wonderful quilting

The blue and white raffle quilt is finished, beautifully quilted by Pauline Ball, This is the quilt pattern by Geta Grama. I am really happy with it, I will take more whole quilt pictures when it is hung at the exhibition in October.
Oh dear there is the next big deadline! the Queensland Quilters show, I have several quilts  ready to be quilted, so had better get my skates on!
We are off to the Wollongong Modern Quilt exhibition in May, just for a short weekend, looking forward to the inspirational works there!
