Not long after the last post my dear husband decided that my sewing room should be painted. Hmm...a good idea...but it took us, with our gardener who is only here onceevery two weeks, over a month to get all done. Moving some things out of the room, move other things from one side to the other, cover everything in drop cloths, clean up each time, but it was worth it in the end. The upshot is that not a lot of sewing was done, but it was good to sort out all the projects in progress..found a couple I had forgotten about!
These are the Block Lotto blocks for October. I found that I didn't have any Halloween fabrics, but did find one piece at a local quilt event.
The said local quilt event is called Fynbos, and is run every other year by our local umbrella guild. (Actually spent 6 days there, setting-up, helping, taking down, transporting stuff, scribing in the judging room!) There were some classes as well as vendors and an exhibition. This is the result so far of a wonderful class I took there with Kathryn Cillliers-Louw. First picture was during the class and the second a few days later, but still to be completed. Daughter C says the corners look like wi-fi symbols.
At the exhibition, this is my dear friend Tracy in front of her amazing Millefiore quilt, all hand-pieced, and long-arm quilted by herself.
This was also quilted for me by Tracy. It's in the wash right now, so more photos later:
I have managed a finish (after about 8 years!) of a colourwash quilt started in a class:
On my wall, blocks from this year's quilt along called Squared Away, with Angela at Soscrappy and her friend Mari at the Academic Quilter. Still thinking about how to assemble these blocks.
And finally, down to the last few 2-inch-square blocks of Klein, Kleiner, Kleinste, now can start to play with layouts. (KKK = small, smaller, smallest)
