Quilt as you go

I have been working on my quilt-as-you-go this weekend.

I am half way through, and I am hoping to get it finished for our local quilt show in October.

It was started in a class, my first ever and only class, in August 2008.

My work has come along way since all these blocks were made, but it will be lovely and warm for the winter nights.

I have completed 'Sampey's'.

I am very happy with it.

It is 19" x 23". Pieced background of cotton batiks, with some free motion machine embroidary.

I quilted some sheep in the paddocks.

Here is the photo that I took in 2003 that inspired this quilt. It is one of my husbands family farm blocks. It doesn't exist anymore because they have pulled the old fencing down now. Progress!
