Showing off

Following requests to show the whole quilt I have a mini show for you.  Here is a quilt I have partially shown in a previous blog.  I first saw it in a class with Kim McLean.
I have also been asked to show the spiderweb quilt.  Even though it is not quilted, here it is with the edges pinned, so that you can see the backing.
I have included another quilt finished in 2009.  Since this blog is intended primarily as a quilt diary, I would like to document all my quilts eventually.  We are going to Adelaide this weekend, and I am giving our hosts a quilt, both as a thankyou and as a house warming.  So this quilt is leaving home.
Finally, I have been working on a small cot quilt for a friend who is expecting her first child in November.  Since I have a bundle of fat quarters from "Sweet" by Urban Chicks for Moda, I thought  might use them.  No one knows the gender of the baby so I am hoping the quilt is not gender specific.
See you when I get back from Adelaide.

You make some fabulous quilts! I love them all equally. What a wonderful gift the second quilt is. You have an excellent eye for colour, the baby quilt is looking great.
