Quilting in Progress!

Photographic evidence that I am making progress with quilting "Unplugged" :

Yes I know this shows the quilt upside down but I wanted to put the baggy, unquilted sections at the bottom. The quilting is quite heavy with lines approximately 1/8" apart. As an experiment, I am quilting these lines with a darning foot rather than a walking foot. Here are a couple of closeups.

I will quilt the purple centre of this block in due course:

By the way, Ngoia Pollard Napaltjarri of Watiyawanu Artists won the 23rd Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award 2006 with her subtle, black & white textured canvas - Swamps West of Nyrripi .

Hi Brenda

Your quilt is coming along beautifully. Ngoia's art quilt is gorgeous, black and white always look wonderful together.

Hi Brenda...thanks for posting the links! I've never wanted to take a class with Nancy, but after many recent conversations on QA and other places, and now these, I'm highly intrigued!

As for talking with hands...I'm Irish-Scottish ancestry on one side and Irish with a smidge of German on the other. Yet my first boss told me if they amputated my hands I'd be mute..... we must be kindred spirits LOL!

Cheers, Sarah
