Works in Progress

Today I made a quick assessment of all the work I have yet to complete, or should I say "want to complete" or "hope to complete" by the end of 2008.

First up is one that I made for Melissa.I am handquilting it with N08 Perle Cotton and it is very tedious because the thread is so thick, my fingers become very sore and needles break !

The fabrics are Japanese and I bought them as a kit from Material Obsession. This photo doesn't do the colours justice, they are very sumptuous looking, and quite lush.

Next up is a Kaffe Fassett design from one of his recent books( can't remember which one). This is for Keira.

I am machine quilting this so it is waiting for a couple of free days for me to get cracking.

These are blocks from a block of the month design from a local shop that has since closed. I am hoping it will be finished for Sarah's 21st birthday.She chose the design and I have altered things a little to make it more personal for her

Whoops, I am not sure how to turn this photo up the right way.

This last is almost finished but has been put "on hold" whilst I am quilting the flower garden.

This quilt was a design out of a Patchwork and Quilting magazine and it has been taken from a quilt made in 1842.The fabrics I used are reproduction fabrics from the Civil War collection.

I have other works in progress but they can wait for another day.

I'm speechless! Those quilts are all so incredibly beautiful! I can only hope to one day have the patience to make things like that.
I'm struggling to finish the 'quilt' I'm making for Aesop's big boy bed and that's just big squares sewn together! HA. Your girls are very lucky.
