I have finished my Batman quilt top and working on the back now....
I'm pretty happy with the way it's turned out....everyone at the Guild asked me if it was for my son....they couldn't believe it when I told them it was for my 29 year old teaching partner!!!
Somehow, I don't think I'll have it ready for his birthday on Tuesday....perhaps it'll have to be a teaser where I give it to him as a topper and take it back to finish it.....aaaahhh that's an idea.....maybe the backing and quilting can be his Christmas present!!!! (hehehe just jokin!)
We had our big reveal of the Round Robin Medallion Quilts we held over the past 6 months at our Guild. We had groups of 6 ladies, made a centre block of 12 1/2" and sent them round our group each month for each of us to complete the next border in the round. It was soooo much fun and helped me develop new skills and try colour combinations I wouldn't normally use!!
I sent a star block (very similar, it seems, to your BOM block, Kylie!!!) and this is how it came back....
very very be-ewwwwww-ti-ful!!!!!
Thank you ladies!!!!
Here are the other quilts I worked on in our group.....they've all turned out magnificently and everyone was extremely happy with their tops....lots of oooooh's and aaaaaah's yesterday...it's a wonder you couldn't hear them from your place!!!
Allison with her beautiful Christmas quilt
Margaret and her Bouquet Basket
Lynnie love her pink border (had to add a bit of splash!!!)
What's Noah's Ark without waves, sand and grass???
Allyson's Moda blocks were gorgeous
They all came out different sizes and Allyson won't have to do much more to make hers into a queen sized bed quilt! And I must show you Gloria's wonder......her rooster block astounded her when it returned to her as this......
Isn't it wonderful??? all the quilts were very impressive...so much talent at the local guild...if you're not in one, you should consider joining....it's so much fun and you learn so much from all the ladies!!!!
I'll share with you the other quilts in my next post....too many to share now.
So what surprises have you got this weekend?? I'd love to hear!
Well, I'm off to judge my junior duckies in the Annual Rotary Duck Race!!! I'll tell you all about it next time!
Big sugary hugs
