Applique, Exhibiting Quilts, Needle turn, RJR Smithsonian Fabric

Only one more row of stitches!

It’s been a very busy weekend what with going to Quilts in the Barn on Saturday, buying fabric in Gisborne on Sunday and receiving 2 parcels of fabric from The States, but more about next post.

As the title says I’ve only got one more row of stitches to do tonight and I can drop my quilts off to the Exhibition Committee.  I may never willing exhibit anything again, or maybe I shouldn’t leave it ’til the last moment.

I’m only going to attach my labels that I created with  a bit of fabric glue and stitch them on later.  I had lots of fun creating these labels but next time I’ll make sure they’re on before they go to be quilted.

Label for 'Flowers in a field of Plaid
Label for "Red Sails in the Sunset"
Label for "Teardrop Medallion"

I’ll get some photos of the quilts when they’re hung and they can go on my ‘Completed’ Page.  All of these quilts have been quilted by Margaret at Quiltstation and I can’t wait to show you some of the quilting, up close, on my Teardrop Medallion.

Well my hands have had their rest, time to get back to the sewing room.

  1. Hmmmm, I have a feeling I will know where to go next time I need a quilt label…they look FANTASTIC 🙂
    Mine have all gone ready to be hung at exhibition, and boy did I let out a sigh of relief when I handed them over.

    1. LOL Thanks, so you would be third in the queue. I can barely type my hands are so sore. I dropped my 3 quilts off night and she was waiting for Patti to drop off hers and then that was it. I wont be doing any sewing until maybe 4-10 next week.
