Karen's quilting

I know it has been a while since I last posted, time has been spent in healing. The tennis elbow and shoulder problems I have had since last August are finally healing to a point where I can get back to stitching by hand. At the moment I am finishing 2 quilts for our show so no pics of what I am sewing.
I have been blog hopping and Karen at Quilts.....etc is having a blog give away to celebrate 7 years of blogging. Use the Quilts...etc  Link to go and see what wonderful quilts she creates and enter the giveaway.
Jazz is a very happy cat right now, sitting on my lap keeping warm as the weather cools.
Enjoy the looking and take some timeout to sew.

Australian Summer Easy Street

Top is complete with borders. It is a biggggg quilt. The Backing is done too, had to patch together a nmber of fabrics for that! I have the wadding and it will be off to be quilted soon. 2377 pieces big!
 I didn't have enough of the fabric in the centre of the last border so I added the corners to frame it.
I do like this look. The quilt top went together easiyl once we had completed the 2 different blocks.
That took a little time. Boo keeps me company in the sewing room curled up on a high stool. Occasionally
rubbing around the legs to say time for a break pat me mummy. NOW mummy. If I don't respond.
This is one of the biggest quilts I have made and in a record 2 months as well. Impressive. Thank you Bonnie K. Hunter for this years Mystery quilt.
