We had such a wonderful weekend. And the photos will show what
a productive group we were.First off, l needed to finish this top,
which had been languishing in the cupboard.
All it needed was the sawtooth border stitched around the edges.
Its off to the machine quilter later this week, where she will work her magic.
Then l got busy cutting this pile of red and whites.
And stitching more of these blocks.
The red love was flowing around the table.
Those machines were running HOT!!
Sandra was busy adding rows to her top.
We started playing with my blocks,
and found more than 1 way to set this top.
Everyone had an opinion,
and a play!!
Of course, there were a few red rebels busy at their machines,
here's Margaret working on some blocks with fabric from an Old Aunts stash.
Chris was busy making 21st birthday quilts for her daughters girlfriend.
Anne was buried deep in concentration, trying to make row 3 work.
There was some colorful language coming from this part of the room!!
We even took some time to do a bit of food staging!!
Randi, ( my travel partner when l go to NYC next week) sent me a photo of a red and white quilt she just completed. Sandra was so inspired, she quickly cut some fabric and made a block.
We played some more with the sizing for our next swap.
Now l have to make 60 of these little beauties.
By the end of the weekend Jill had her beautiful toile red and white quilt together.
This one is Sandra's finished top. Like Jill, she just used 2 fabrics.
Margaret had a good pile of her blocks finished.
Anne finally managed to tame row 3 and had these to show for her weekends sewing.
Lizzie made a good dint in her pile of fabrics,
and is well on her way to having this top completed.
And l had enough blocks made, that we started playing with border options.
A girlfriend called around for lunch on Sunday, and brought her current work in progress.
Of course, it had to be red and white!! Just love it.
The weekend came to a close far to soon, we packed up our fabrics and projects,
cleaned the house and headed home.
Happy, content, exhausted and most importantly INSPIRED!!
And if you still crave more red and white quilts, pop on over to see Taryn,
