Today I could put a huge tick into my to-do list, the two quilts I have been working on in last few weeks (hence no posts recently) are finally finished, packed and probably by now have left the Island!!! Somebody said today, I must feel lost, not knowing what to do, so I just laughed … the next deadline is workshop list and new cushion I’m working on and of course Birmingham’s Festival of Quilt and the Cathedral Window quilt I have to still finish. So no I know very well what to do, but having those quilts send is great achievement and I feel I did a good job on them, now it’s just up to the judges to decide whether I did good enough job to be awarded as well. It’s a dream of every person who is sending something for a competition to win or get any kind of recognition, and I’m no different, but even if they come back home empty handed (as we say in Czech) I love them and I have learned soooo much making them and nobody will ever take that from me.
So here are few packing photos …
sewing a label on …
…rolling the quilts with lots of tissue paper in between ….
…some protective bubble wrap and straight in a box.
I am standing on my tiptoes to be a bit bigger, but actually I was just two or three inches taller 🙂
And here are the beauties …. I will write about them soon in much more detail and tell you all about the process and what I’ve been going through but now you can just enjoy the final picture.
And a one picture of the back of the quilt … I love the feather work.
And finally the Bargello quilt
So I hope you like them, once they are back form the competition, they will hang in the shop for a while if you’d like to see them in real and didn’t make it to the Sandown Show.
Thank you for reading
Love the colors….and that pattern is gorgeous!
Thank you, I wanted the Bargello to stand out, that’s why I choose such a bright and striking colours. I’m glad you like it!
Absolutely amazing I LOVE the log cabin, I haven’t done it yet but I will!!
Thank you Jill, it’s a lovely block and very versatile, it was on my wish list for quite a while. Go for it as well.
Beautiful, Vendulka and each one so different! You a very talented, you deserve to bring home prizes!! I love to read your blogs and newsletters ~ I ‘hear’ the words in your accent! X
Thank you Jacqueline, As you became brave on your blog, I too was finally brave enough not to worry about my grammar and accept it as this is me and try to take it as part of my charm and “image”. Let’s hope it will work!

They both look amazing x
Thank you, Sue
I love the log cabin quilt it’s one of my favourite styles for quilting. You should be very proud of them both, lots of hard work – fingers crossed for the shows.
