Heritage Quilt - Last block

I finally finished the last block of this quilt - another collage using different pieces with netting on top which were selectively cut away.  So, as soon as the Mystery quilt is done, I will start adding sasching to this one.







































The last six weeks have been extremely difficult as  I really struggled to get out of the hole this year.  People who haven't lost a child tend to tell you it will get better with time...  Well, it does not.

I have several projects going at the moment, but unfortunately my Innovis 4000 broke down and is waiting for a new part.  So, I am rather stuck.  That however, gave me time to go fabric shopping for next years project which seems to be the remedy I needed as the dark cloud is lifting at last.

Amafu fabric on the left and Langa Lapu fabric's rainbow strip on the right - both South African products.




We decided to stitch Shadow Trapunto Quilts.  My daughter bouht me Geta Grama's book a few years back as a birthday present, so it is about time it is put to good use.


Unbelievable as it my sounds, we are already planning projects for 2019 which is a mere 12 weeks away...
