Three quilts quilted

Goodness, it has been a few years since I worked through three quilt tops in one week, and whilst I am very glad to have got so much done, I certainly needed a rest afterwards.

The big Irish Chain quilt ended up being an absolute dream to quilt - which left me feeling sad/guilty that I had not done it before.  But I know why I put it off for so long, so there endeth the self-flagellation.  The actual quilting was finished last weekend, then Management and I had a couple of slow days whilst we sneezed and sniffled our way around the house.  But during that downtime I put the binding on, and arranged the quilts in a pretty pile just for the sake of taking pictures.









I won't add any of them to the (abandoned since Spring) "Quilt Finishes" page because they are not yet completely finished, however with all the rain we're having this week it is impossible to get into the garden so there's a slim chance that at least one of them will be totally done before the month end.

  6. The quilts look great. Sort of back in blogland (tired & stressed, I'll email next week), and am doing a catch up & was surprised by the "quilting marathon" on one of them.(giggle) Glad you've had rain & something we desperately need too, here in NSW & Queensland where they are in severe drought. I'll probably post photos over the next few weeks of our trip. Off now to read the rest. Take care.
