Sandwich time

I decided the other day it was time to get some quilt tops sandwiched....they delay for me is always putting the backing together...but yesterday I got sorted and now two tops that have been waiting around are ready to be quilted.

not sure how to quilt this one but something will come to mind no doubt!

This one will be plain quilting in bright thread I am thinking, it is flannel so might need to put on a cotton fabric binding, which I hope will be stronger. Any thoughts? 
These two quilts will both go to the Bellarine Quilting group to add to their Quilts for others collection.

The last two evenings, as it has been a little cooler, I have sewn the binding on this quilt, a little one I collected at Guild, that will go to the Childrens Hospital

and this one is part way through.
On Friday the hubby and I went into Geelong to the Art Gallery to have a look at the Archibald Prize paintings on display

this one appealed to me, I liked all the layers and textures

this one I saw on Anh Do's TV programme and didn't realise there are moths and bugs incorporated in the painting, there is information about the painting here.  It was very moving watching the painting evolve and hear Jack Charles talk about his life.

I liked this one for the serenity in this ladies face, I can not remember her age but she is over 100 yrs.
I am off to sit at the machine now and get quilting.
Happy sewing.
