Sandown quilt

As promised a couple more pictures of the quilt on the frame. This is my entry for the charity category at the National Quilt Championships. I can't say the theme is my thing, "In the Pink" and I really don't like pink, but it's for charity and it's at a show I love. I came up with a idea that I have named "No effing p**k". There won't be any pink on the quilt at all. In fact it will mostly be black, but that isn't a surprise.

I don't expect this quilt to be sucessful at shows, but I do think it will make a great teaching tool. It will have a lot of threads and patterns on it. So it will come with me to classes. I am also hoping to use it as pattern samples for longarming customers, so it should pay for itself over time. Right now I am having a lot of fun. I am trying new things and hopefully learning from this quilt myself.

Brilliant! Will you enter it for the Great Northern Quilt show? I think they have a 'humour' category there - at least, they used to. This would be perfect.

Don't see why not if they have an appropriate category. I guess it could do the rounds in general actually. I only thought of it for this show.
