Every weekend should start like this!!
Good friends, good food and good champagne!!
Deb spent most of the weekend working on these blocks,
And by Sunday was able to take home an almost finished quilt top.
Can't wait to see this one quilted.
Bev spent a lot of time doing this.
She also stitched together these blocks she's appliqued.
Its looking stunning!!
There was a grownup version of Mac and Cheese!!
Jenn did a little work on fixing this quilt top.
Another striking quilt to hang in our exhibition.
so can't show what they were doing.
Instead Margaret brought along her Maltaville Album Quilt for a closer inspection.
Hmmm!! This would look great in red and white!!
l did get this top together,
but not with out some unpicking, as 2 blocks
decided to play a little trick on me and swapped places!!
There were a couple other what went wrongs!!
Like Margaret thinking you can make toffee with sugar, water and cream!!
New batch in progress in back saucepan.
And lets not mention the morning hair styles!!
Or the inadvertent stitching of another part of the quilt.
Can you see what's wrong here?????
We sure gave those 2 quick unpicks a workout over the weekend!!
Bev brought plenty of show and tell for us.
That Myer bag is stuffed full.
And there was more over on the couch.
Margaret made cherry clafoutis for desert, after carefully reading the recipe.
l showed some antique quilt blocks l had recently bought.
And remember l mentioned wanting to play with color???
Did l go too far??
This PHD has been sitting around untouched for too long, so out it came.
It's close to finished. Just needs an afternoon sewing.
And of course the compulsory chocolate.
Accompanied here by red wine and cook books.
Thanks girls for a wonderful weekend!!
So many laughs, so many great memories made.
Y'all come back, ya here!!
Thanks for visiting,
