Saturday Sew-In

 Yesterday was a Saturday sew-in when some of our group members meet to just sew away from distraction. Helene brought along her hand-pieced hexagon quilt top which is nearing completion and spread it on the floor so we could talk about how she might finish the edges. The fabrics she'd used are amazing and we all spotted different ones we liked. Helene has agreed to write a blog post about how she swapped fabrics on the internet so watch this space!

 Susanne was also doing some hand stitching to finish quilting this simple but beautiful quilt. Look at her lovely quilting:

Maria was using some gorgeous floral fabric in her quilt blocks. She added her borders after I took the photo so completed a quilt top before the end of the day - great work!

I was using a charm pack and some tone on tone ivory fabric cut into 5" squares to sew simple pinwheel blocks and was really pleased with how they turned out.
I'm hoping to have the quilt finished in time for our Jubilee party at the end of the month. Is anyone else making red, white, and blue quilts?

I'm afraid I didn't get s photo of Rebecca's lovely Japanese fabric blocks but perhaps we'll see more of those soon.

If anyone has photos or news to share with our group please do get in touch
