Three Days

Mavis reverted to pink after originally plumping for blue. She likes pink!

Fran chose blue but reverted  to including blacks and greys.
She has a lot of those.

Thursday was Bonnie Day and the others showed off their blocks. Mine have already been on this blog and others have seen them but noone including me noticed or at any rate pointed out my mistake. I'll post again once I've restitched the "after" to go alongside the "before". Trish is deep into wedding sewing and will catch up later.
Mary's exquisite baby quilt, soft viyella and sweet embroidered bunnies.

Maggie's quilt top using Schweshwe fabrics. Fantastic border.

Friday was Queen Bees work on our joint quilt which involved a day of sewing in ends with more to come when the quilting is complete. All will revealed when it's on display at Sandown. Meanwhile there was some Show & Tell.
Saturday was a trip to see our son's flat in its completed splendour. We left the car with him and courtesy of our bus passes travelled into London to go to the Tate Modern to see the Sonia Delauney exhibition. Lots of colour inspiration and pattern as there was elsewhere in the collection which we looked at selectively. There was a work by Ellsworth Kelly which looked just like a painting. I bought the Delauney catalogue and her textile adventures were in part prompted by her Russian heritage and by the quilt she made for her baby son. Sweetly Alan said it wasn't as good as mine! I said hers would cost a bit more.

Sonia Delauney's quilt for her son.

Tate Modern from the Millennium Bridge; everywhere was seething with people.
