8 year old sampler quilt top . . . lilac time - under the Juki

8th UFO - 8 years old
Flower basket - machine applique

Applique heart 'n flowers


Under the Juki . . all set to go.
I began this quilt top 8 years ago to use as a teaching aid at classes I ran at Fabrix of Lancaster.
I loved the japanese themed fabric at the time but now realise how dated the fabric looks.
Used the quilt blocks at Lancaster & Morecambe College where I taught patchwork and quilting - finally completing the top having used it for demonstration purposes at my Heirloom Sampler Workshops for Garstang Patchwork Quilters at Bilsborrow Village Hall. Set it aside until now . . . backed it yesterday - neatened the edges - hope to finish unquilted areas tomorrow and get the quilt blocked and bound by the end of the week when it'll then be onward and upward to the next UFO waiting in the wings . . .

You must be sooooo happy that Juki didn't get sold! What beautiful work it's helping you do....

Thanks mainly to you Angie for persuading me to keep going on the Juki. Was ready to chuck it out of the window - as you know!
