Just the borders to quilt. . .
Go into hospital tomorrow afternoon . . . not sure I can finish quilting the borders before I'm admitted.
Wish me luck!

Machine quilting last block of Autumn quilt . . .

Rushing it a bit but desperate to finish this autumn version of the Singing Garden Quilt  before I go into hospital next week for operation on my spine. Have to do a bit of tidying up on the quilt - filling bald patches etc.,  which will have to wait a few months I'm afraid. You'll find no definite pattern to my quilting here. With this particular quilt it's a case of filling the spaces ASAP.
I just hope the finished overall effect will be OK.

Following the op I've been told not to lift anything for a fortnight - and only  lift the weight of a kettle for a further 4 weeks.
Not thrilled about that . . .

Meanwhile having a good look at my Jinny Beyer book "Quiltmaking by Hand" which I bought years ago. A great book with lots of ideas and information.   Jinny stitches all her fabulous quilts by hand so I'm having to follow suit for the next few months. Good for the soul. . . .

Wish me luck!!
