The ramblings from a small quilt shop on the South Islands West Coast of New Zealand

So What Now????

So much for my good intentions... I spent a couple of days trying to get some sort of message from the quilt to tell me just how to quilt it and just couldn't get passed a gentle meander.  Really, I even tried to005 put off sandwiching my GJ quilt but the only thing that happened was I ended up trying to use up the left over fabric bits by piecing the back.

Then with still no idea I tried to get some     i006nspiration by designing my quilt label, by the way the stitchery in it is one of the UFO's I found the other day - well, I've got to make use of them some how, right?

002 In the end I just gave up and went with  the meander, something understated and simple that doesn't detract from the blocks.

So now my version of Annie Downs, Gardener's Journal is finished and bound, so what now?  Yep there are plenty of 'to do's', WIP's, UFO's and PHD's but they're not half as much fun as starting another - tee hee.

By the way, remember I told you about the ladies that come to the shop and like to keep up to date with the SAL and sometimes give me ideas on mine? Well at least one of them is making her own GJ quilt.  Sharon doesn't have a blog but once she is finished I'll post a picture of her quilt.

To all of our stitching sisters over the Alps in Christchurch.  Keep smiling girls I'm sure nobody will mind if I speak on behalf of all of us and say our prayers and thoughts are with you all.

  7. Well done you managed a meander. My attempt at twirly quilting was more like "life on the ocean waves". I'll manage proper curves one day.

    Congrats on a finish.
