Oops!

Oops! I lost a day! I usually manage to write something at least every other day, and had planned to yesterday, but it just passed me by. I was super worn out, and ended up going to bed at 10pm. That's just unheard of for me.

Just something smallish to share - I've started quilting on the Sisters Choice quilt. I doubt you can see much in the picture. The only real evidence is the quilted line down the middle of the leaves.

The thread I'm using is this really cute Mettler one, it's a variegated rayon, which shines just beautifully. It goes from a cream to a gold to a brown. It's really nice. Perhaps a little subtle for my extremely limited photography skills.

Better run, we have a big day - lunch at my Mum & Dad's, and tonight is the Netball presentation dinner. Should be a fun day :-)

This is a gorgeous quilt, and I am impressed that you are handquilting it. The border fabric looks wonderful with it.
How sweet to be able to see a quilt a student has finished. It too is beautiful, and a wonderful tribute to your skills as a teacher and pattern designer.

Both quilts are beautiful. I really like the border you chose, it's perfect for the quilt. Those Sister's Choice blocks are a great border around your beautifully appliqued center. Thanks for sharing the finished top!
