The Quilt is Finished

So I can now post a photo of it with all the lovely quilting, which was done by Judi on her Long arm quilting machine.Close-up of Judi's quilting 2012 Auckland Festival of Quilts 2012 157 I never won a prize, but received 5 Excellent’s & 2 VGood’s on the critic, so it shows you the high standard of our Show.
The next thing is to put it in my suitcase and take it to Australia along with the two quilts I have made for two
Grandsons. I’ll probably get done for excess baggage! :-)Auckland Festival of Quilts 2012 103 Auckland Festival of Quilts 2012 102

In the mean time I have made this cute little wallhanging from Lori’s web page. I had a few ways I could have pieced the blocks together

but I think I’ll settle for the way Lori pieced it, as that was what I liked about it. P1010039

I must get back to making my Christmas gifts, so thanks for dropping by

Well done on the Excellences and Very goods!! It is lovely, and I'm sure your grandsons will love their quilts too. I love Lori's quilt too, in fact I am sorting fabric scraps for it, as we speak!

Congratulations Sue, on your high scores and for such a lovely finish! I absolutely adore the Hunter's Star design, and your rendition of it is gorgeous! How exciting to be taking those quilts to see grandies. I hope you have a wonderful and happy trip. Safe travels!
