We had such a wonderful weekend. For 2 days the sun shone, the weather was beautiful.
Then on Saturday, down came the rain and well, we didn't care!!
Cause we were busy sewing!!
Its wonderful spending time with these girls. We are like a well oiled group.
Opinions shared, jokes made, teasing, laughs and lots of sewing!!
Not to mention the food!!
This is a quilt Chris finished over the weekend.
She only had the borders to put on.
Its for her daughter's girlfriends 21st birthday.
Then Chris and l decided to make a jelly roll quilt,
using the method shown here.
This is the quilt Chris made, and it only took just over an hour.
Here is mine. l used a roll that was only 1 1/2"wide, so my quilt is smaller, more cot sized.
These were fun to make. My girlfriend, who has just bought a quilting machine,
will quilt these for practise, and we will donate them to a charity.
Here is Bev and Margaret, busy on their hand work.
Bev is appliqueing a border for her stunning pink and green pot of flowers quilt.
Margaret is making Inner city blocks. Forgot to take a photo when
she had them on the design wall. Sorry!!
Here is Chris, working on a new quilt. She is always busy.
Jill was working on a Chris Kringle project.
And sends a wave to Lynne, who is sure to be watching!!
While standing in line to have my book signed in Houston,
a Moda rep was handing out these samples packs of fabric.
So l had a play with them.
These are the 2 mini quilts l made using a different pack for each quilt.
Cute and fun!!
Friday night after dinner was time for our Xmas exchange.
Here are all the gifts waiting.
And here are 5 ( and the 6th behind the camera) happy smiling women with their quilts.
This is mine, made by Margaret.
This went home with Bev, made by Sandra.
This is Margaret's, made by Chris.
This is Christines, made by Bev.
This is Sandra's, made by Jill.
This is Jill's, made by me.
Here they are all together on the design wall. All stunning, all made using
Lori Smith fat quarter patterns
Bev also brought this quilt along. A past exchange, only just recently finished,
and now living at Chris's house. See the fingers top right for scale.
And Sandra had this to share. Another exchange in the next week or so.
Sandra has mastered small. The half square triangles are 1/4".
Wish this one was coming home with me!!!
l was also cutting for a new quilt. Red and white of course!!
Its for my daughters birthday, and as she might be looking,
this is all l can show you at the moment.
Chris was also busy with the rotary cutter, cutting, prepping and sewing
on 2 new quilts. Both red and white. This is the first.
A lone star, it will have applique in the outer corners when finished.
This is the centre for the 2nd.
It will have double flying geese borders, and stars in the corners.
Plenty of room for stunning quilting. This one will be a star!!
And of course, to keep our red and white theme going,
delicious raspberry's, picked fresh from my garden,
with cream and meringues. Delish!!!
Off to pick more raspberry's. Any one for morning tea!!
Thanks for visiting.
