Busy, busy, busy

Finally the Raffle Quilt for the Field of Quilts is finished and tickets are on sale. It's all downhill from here. This weekend the FOQ Quilt will be on display at the West Australian Craft Show held at Claremont Showgrounds.

The FOQ will this year be on Sunday 30th September. Note day changed from Saturday to Sunday to placate all those Aussie Rules following patch workers. They can watch the grand final on Saturday and go to a quilt show the day after.
These patterns are from One Song Needle Arts and are 'Janice With Attitude'. Worked well. I used two layers of wadding - Hobbs 100% Organic Cotton Bleached and Hobbs Polydown - to get the trapunto look and that was where the McTavishing came in and flattened out part of the loft. Even with the two layers the quilt is still beautifully light and supple.

Nearly all the borders are on Sue's quilt. The vertical border is just sitting there to give the impression of what it will look like.

On one visit to Rocky Keryn made me sew piles of the string diamonds, so you have my sympathy! But it's turning out great, and looks diferent to Keryn's, brighter and fresher.
The quilting on the wholecloth is stunning, you've done a fantastic job there. Be proud of yourself!
