Below is a photo of a quilt I made from a Block of the Month, some years ago, (only kit I've ever bought). I really need to get on with quilting it for our local Lioness Biennial Quilt show in September. My initial thoughts were to custom quilt it, but I've done one before where I wasn't able to quilt over the stitcheries and it really flopped out badly. I think I will do an allover on mine in a Roses and Ribbons pattern. I am now asking if other quilters think this will be OK?
|This was the kit called Sahara's Quilt. I enjoyed doing the stitcheries and although I didn't pick the colours I do love it.|
As I've not been feeling the best on this new blood pressure medication, I've not got a lot done except the necessities of ordinary everyday life. Yesterday I made the decision to finally quilt the third table runner sitting waiting on the machine, for now nearly three weeks. I made it simple, but am quite pleased with it.

I've also done some work on the Xmas Quiltalong ready for this coming weekend. Being so extremely tired, nothing much is being attempted of an evening, though I am trying. Just want to have as much energy and enthusiasm as I did 18 months ago. Everyone can give me a bit of a push occasionally.
I'll tell more about what I am putting in the quilt show over the coming weeks.
Have a lovely weekend all my fellow bloggers, even though it is Friday tomorrow, my hubby has that and Saturday off this week, so my weekend starts then.
