Today Geoff took the kids swimming (well, two of them - Sarah is at a friends for the weekend) and I did some work on quilting the Contrary Wife. This photo doesn't really show very well, but the quilting pattern is a sort of meander, with some fern fronds thrown in.
In the four dark pink blocks, I am going to do insects - dragonflies & butterflies, I think - here are two - I haven't done the other two yet. They aren't perfect, but not bad for freehand and made up as you go along.
It's now about halfway quilted (not quite) and I hope to get it finished (the quilting, I mean) before the end of the week.
