Wouldn't you love to win this?

Hi Everyone,

I thought I'd post some photos of what Mum has been furiously working on for the past couple of weeks. For those of you that don't know, Mum is a professional machine quilter and this year she was asked to quilt the raffle quilt for the South Australian Quilters' Guild. She has pulled out all the stops and done a marvellous job.


The whole quilt


Centre detail

Close up of centre



Border detail


How perfect is that stitching around the applique and the cross hatching?



Can this woman work a ruler or what?




Rays


Detail of the setting block - what a cute motif


And finally piano keys in the borders.


The quilt will be on display at various venues including The Festival of Quilts in November and all money raised will go to Autism SA.

Well done, Mum - you should be very proud of yourself.

Until next time,

Shontelle.
