Its been a long time since I blogged, as I’ve being busy finishing off things that were long overdue.
Yesterday the Patchwork and Quilting Pals met and I demonstrated how to cut out and sew a dresden plate block. Those who wanted to join in decided that they wanted to make mats rather than more cushions or table runners. As the shops are now selling Christmas fabrics most of us decided to go along with ‘Christmas in July’ and made them with a festive theme.
Look how different they all are!
At least now I’ll have one new thing to put out this Christmas, finished… before I start on the ‘baby’ theme again!
Enjoy the fine weather and have fun!
I have had soooo many enquiries about quilting and sewing that I decided to start another sewing group this coming Monday. We are going to be called Patchwork and Quilting Pals and look like we are nearly full at our first meeting! WOW, sewing is popular now.
I am kept so busy that I often only get time to sew on my dedicated club days and my ‘to sew list‘ is ever increasing! I did manage to finish one potential quilt top by turning it into hanging pockets so I can store all my rulers safely. I’ve been working on it for over three years, so was glad to see something useful made with it. No photos at present as it needs securing to the wall properly.
My next project is to quilt the playmat for Farris, something that has been on the list for months. I hope to get it started at least before he is a year old at the end of the month. I wonder where the year has gone and adore spending time with him.
Have a fun time, Linda
