Quayquilters Group Quilt workshop

We are making a "Whirligig"/Buzzsaw quilt for our biannual quilt show next July 2009 using a cream on cream background and dark and pale blues. The room divided itself naturally into lights and darks with a degree of rivalry between the two. We - the darks- benefited from an excellent forewoman who sorted out strips to combine so that each unit would contain different fabrics. By the end of the afternoon we had sewed enough for a 90" square quilt - the blocks finish at 15" and joined the first two rows. We hope to finish combining it all at our evening meeting next Wednesday. Needless to say there are discrepancies in size but we always find it comes out right in the end and despite the amount of cutting and seaming in this pattern there is a minimum of seams to match up.
