Maureen's Quilt

Marty and I have done our civic duty this morning. We voted in the federal election. I think a lot of people had the same idea we did - get it done early and the rest of the day is ours.

We have a BBQ at 4.30pm - so I plan to spend this afternoon tinkering with my webpage, and tomorrow I'll have the day to myself to start quilting on Maureen's lovely quilt.

It's a Susan Murphy design - I'm pretty sure it's called Formal Garden. I'm just enchanted with it. It could take a while to quilt, I'd like to have it done by Wednesday, but that may be pushing it a little. I'll see how far I get.

I would also like to get the templates made up for my next magazine quilt. I've got yet another scrappy quilt planned, and this time I'm doing some curved piecing. I'm feeling very brave about it, I haven't done anything much with curves. I'll share a picture when I've started actually working on it :-)

Also, I'm a little behind on emails right now - I haven't forgotten you all. I hope all our US friends have had a wonderful Thanksgiving - and have a great weekend everyone! x o x

Are you doing all your customer quilting on a regular home machine? Your arm muscles must be strong by now!! Full size quilts on a home machine are definitely strenuous work :)

I looks a lovely pattern - I think a big responsibility but a treat to have the opportunity to quilt it

Hi Tazzie! I'm even MORE behind than you are in reading blogs, but I thought I'd take a break from cleaning and decorating and try to catch up on a few of my favorites. You've been doing some lovely work--as usual! I'm so sorry to hear about Madaline! I have an older cat and I know her time is coming, but to lose one at that age is heartbreaking. Take care of yourself and enjoy your weekend!

What a beautiful quilt top! I can't wait to see how you quilt it. I know I'd be too terrified to touch it.

What a gorgeous quilt Tazzie-
it is just so elegant and rich looking. I am sure that you will quilt it to be even more beautiful if that is possible.
