The beginning of the year has been rather busy, I am now starting to quilt the Roses quilt. I am really enjoying quilting this one, today I am stitching in the ditch around all the applique parts to make them stand out. I am using a very fine 100 weight polyester thread. A selection of Wonderfil invisifil and Superior Micro quilter. I am using a selection of colours to match the colour of each applique shape.
The quilting in between the applique is a mixture of random spirals, circles and feathers. I am using a polyester thread with a cotton look from Madeira. I am really pleased with he way the thread is looking.
We had a wonderful trip in February down the South Island on our motorbike. Soaking up the amazing scenery, there is something to Wow! you around every corner. Spectacular lakes and mountains everywhere. Even a quilt shop. The picture below is Mt Cook, the colour of the lake is a gorgeous turquoise blue.
I was teaching at Grandmother Garden in February also and had a wonderful group of ladies in the class. I am also looking forward to teaching a class this month in Rotorua, so I will leave you all with my lovely pictures of the South Island and get on with quilting my Roses quilt.
I hope to show you more of the Roses quilt in my next post.

This morning I find myself with too many quilts in progress at one time! They are all at a stage that they can be worked on and I love them all !
The first one is the BOM 2018 which I have almost finished the quilting, I only have the very last border to finish. If you missed this last year, you can find the full pattern for this quilt here.
