I know I’ve been very quiet lately but I haven’t been slacking. I’m trying to complete the In a Spin hand-quilting. I’ve completed 51 of the 99 blocks and then after that I have to quilt the border so I’m less than half-way there.

I’ve also joined the Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild. I don’t really like the word “Modern” as for me it has connotations of minimalistic ugliness in architecture and interior design. I prefer the word contemporary to describe the kind of quilts that aren’t just copies of traditional quilt designs. I don’t want to get into a whole controversial debate here either. I’m not saying one is better than the other. There are examples of both I really like and examples of both that I really dislike. Anyway the first meeting of the GWSMQG was lovely. Everybody was very enthusiastic, friendly and there was lots of interesting show and tell.

Here are a few photos of the In a Spin quilting.

So tell me… what are you working on at the moment?
