I need help! Do I quilt an allover/E2E pattern on this quilt or do I go for a custom job?
I know that a lot of you may not give an answer, but I just had to write this for my own piece of mind. This quilt has been so long in the making that I'd just like it finished, but I can't make up my mind. I've been asked to put it in a small local craft show at the end of February, but not sure I'll be able to finish it in time, so another show (as above) is coming up in June, so maybe that will be the way to go. My problem with a custom job is that I have so many strange shapes and as I don't really do much free motion these days, need computerised patterns for these. I've spent hours browsing sites and haven't come up with much so far. Oh well, I'll just show some of the shapes, then we'll see what else I've been up to.

A short trip to a vintage market in a small town near to us resulted in these interesting items.
I have a project in mind for the wrought iron corner brackets, so I'll show that once finished. They don't have any age to them. The bobbin is something I've wanted for some time and they were once prohibitively expensive, but this was very reasonable. It is propped against a notebook in my sewing area. We were going to purchase another item, which hubby had mistaken the price on. We both kept talking about it, so we went back, did a spot of negotiating and are now the proud owners of this.

Today, as it was cooler, saw me do a spot of baking, namely an Anzac slice and some peanut butter squares.
I may be quiet on the comments front over the weekend, as we are on grandchildren duties Sunday and Monday, so everyone have a great weekend and take care.
