Sisters!!

Have been busy again! Make the most of it cause I don't know when I'll be getting another day off. Though I do have the morning off tomorrow.

Here's the dragon quilt all layered and ready to quilt, it's sat now looking sad and neglected while I figure out how to quilt it.

In the ditch? Criss crosses through the blocks? Flames in the red? I'm thinking about it ok.
In the meantime, I've hand stitched the label, not quite as nicely as the one for my ALQS, but I've done it. I wrote on the fabric and stitched over it again, that seemed to meet with approval last time, and I like the effect so I think I'll stick with that.

I dunno what happened to the eight! LOL It went a bit wonky, well if we can have wonky stars and wonky houses, why can't we have wonky eights? LOL

Moya has been busy too, my poor sewing machine and iron must have wondered what was happening on Tuesday, as soon as I was finished with the machine for a moment, Moya was on there, then we were racing each other to the iron!

We had a good time though and both achieved a lot. This is the little quilt Moya is making for her daughters ballet class, it is to be raffled.

I also put together some 5' charms, I feel a split nine patch coming on, I'll get a pic of those soon.

Did I mention I have the morning off tomorrow? First stop the job centre, they update on Thursday, then it's on with the quilting.

Have a good day.

Wow! This quilt looks gorgeous. Love the colours. Hand sewn labels are the best finish to a beautiful quilt too. I print mine on paper and then trace them. Not sure how mine will turn out. Back to that later.....

What a busy day! Can't help much with the dragons as I struggle to quilt my own. However, I would think some in the ditch because you don't want the quilting to obscure the gorgeous dragons!
