Hello and welcome! The quilt I am about to show will NOT have you enjoying some fancy quilting, because there is none, zip, naadaa!
But what you will see is a beautiful quilt, lovingly designed, appliqued and pieced.
The facts about this stunning quilt, to the best of my knowledge:
Design, piecing and applique by Sharon Keightley of Pine Valley Quilts - Link to this quilt *here*
Matilda's Own Wool/polyester batting.
Ditch stitching - me!
When Sharon asked me if I would do some quilting for her I was quite surprised as Sharon is a very accomplished quilter in her own right, what on earth did she want me for??
Big dead lines, too many quilts to baste, that dreaded basting can bring you domestic quilters to your knees - literally!! Sharon asked me to please ditch stitch and she would do the rest of the fancy quilting. Happy to! Ditch stitching can be very tedious and if I'm, honest very boring! But it must be done - unless you have chosen edge to edge quilting, then it is not necessary.
So there you have it, please keep an eye out on Sharon's blog and facebook pages to see what quilting Sharon does do, I'm sure it will be a winner! I'm sure you will be tempted by her lovely patterns.
Last Sunday I went tramping to a magic spot called MimiWhangata. We were lucky with the weather only one wild wet shower of rain then the rest of the day was fine, except the wind, that was strong in exposed places, it had us grabbing our woolly hats . But as usual the not so good stuff about tramping are out weighed by the views, such spectacular scenery.

Then it was time to head back home!
Home to work on some more of your quilts. Sneak peeks of one I have finished and other half way through.
Stay tuned for an update next week for these two beautiful quilts. Until them, be happy, be safe and keep on patchin' that fabric!
