I started blogging about this in February - and you may recall that I decided to treat these JQs a bit like a sketch book (or follow a 'what if' approach to the project).
So for the second group of 4 mini quilts I used 'memories of Andalusia' to inspire the theme of the quilts. You may recall that I prepared some background papers which I blogged about here - and I was a bit concerned that I had cheated a bit! But this was a sketchbook approach - it's fine!
So the next stage was to take the photographs created in July, print them onto 'print ready' cotton fabric and then quilt.
And here we are.

|Memories 5 - The Bath House Floor|
|Memories 6 - Seville Courtyard|
|Memories 7 - Cordoba Mezquita|
|Memories 8 - Spanish Tile|
I have edged the quilts with a little blanket stitch. I like that and may use it again (though the poor machine started skipping stitches - it desperately needs a bit of TLC. I must get it serviced!)
Let me know what you think of these and thanks for stopping by.
Oh and why is this post entitled Skidding to a deadline? Because these had to be uploaded onto the Contemporary Group website by the 31st August. Others had their quilts finished and uploaded months ago!
