12 Days - Day 7 and 8

Firstly, thank you all for the well wishes for my friend Jean, she remains in hospital and is likely to be there for the foreseeable ... we'll all know more after the consultants conference on Monday. 

So, day 7 (Thursday)  I finished the quilting on Jean's quilt ...


I used Superior Threads Rainbows Northern Lights ...


pretty ... (if I do say so myself) 

Day 8 (Friday) 

With Jean out of action for a while, we decided that I should square up and add the binding, fortunately I had exactly the same batik in my stash as the outside border fabric ...


it's now back with Jean so she has something to do whilst she waits for Monday and a decision form the doctors.

My poorly Juki made it to the local sewing machine repair man today too ... no more quilting for now ...

so I'm getting back to piecing ...


This is the Monster block for the Brit Mystery quilt along ...

tomorrow ...  more Mystery blocks, and whatever else I can fit in before we head out for dinner with friends

Trudi your quilting is so wonderful. Your poor friend Jean but how lovely to have one of your quilts coming her way - or is it her quilt and you're quilting it. On a more selfish note, I'd love some suggestions from you on quilting the Circle Game - I'll be posting a request for suggestions soon but yours will be more valuable of course as you quilt prolifically.
