Shadow Trapunto Quilt 3

I finally managed to finish this Shadow Trapunto Quilt. It took a few nights of pebbling to got the whole background done with the yellow/orange variegated thread as I have to be super cautious not to put too much stress on my neck and shoulders as not to cause migraines.  I still have another one to finish though.

Table runner

The table runner I wrote about in this post is finished and our quilting group will display our runners at our Guild's General Meeting on Saturday.


It was a fun, fast project leaving us all time to finish up some more UFO's before year's end.  I did however struggle again with the quilting - just deciding what quilting to do where.  Wasting a week on something that should take a single evening.  One of the reasons a whole month had slipped by since my last post.

I also finished a cushion for Choc House as part of our Guilds' Outreach for this term.  They provide comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families.

A fellow member of the Rotary Cutters, Hanlie, gave us all a Pooh Bear panel to utilize.


May this friendly fellow help lessen a child's pain and anxiety whist receiving cancer treatment.

Below are photo's of the other 4 panels before assembling.





 And now on to the next one before framing...

Spiral Burst 6

With only 13 more strips to go, this one is almost done.


But while ironing, I discovered this mistake - a first for me...


But luckily it was an easy fix.  So now, to finish the last few rows.
