A busy weekend ahead

I've got a lot of projects just waiting for their finishing touches, so I'm hoping to finish a few this upcoming weekend. We have a Public Holiday on Monday 2 June for Queen's Birthday weekend, so lots of time to sew. Top of the list is this quilt which I've almost finished hand quilting.


It's made from a Kaffe Fassett jellyroll in blues and greens. I'm hand quilting in two shades of blue Perle 8.



I don't want to show anymore at the moment, but I hope to have finished photos to share next week.
I"m linking up to Sew Cute Tuesday which is hosted by Ms Midge this week. I was thrilled when I visited her site this morning and saw that my black and white Tumbling Blocks quilt is one of her favourite picks from last week. What an honour.

Those are some gorgeous, eye-popping blues. Hope you will show a close up of your hand quilting when you are finished.

Lovely colours! I'm envious of your hand stitching - I don't have the patience or the accuracy (maybe one day). Found via WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced.

Your hand quilting is a wonderful way to finish this quilt. I'm guessing you live in WA? We don't celebrate Queen's birthday until the following weekend.
