Sewing it all together

The art work in this primary school is always a delight
The quilt sections laid out to admire

First social sewing since getting home - just 3 days!
We gathered in a lively decorative schoolroom (cold though) to trim and assemble the blocks for our raffle quilt. Some points were lost; sometimes little strips were added to bring one up to size but once we began to join them QAYG it started to look really good. Just large sections and borders to go now. Some machine sewed, some hand sewed the joining strips on the back and some both. We enjoyed a lovely shared lunch. We can cook and bake too.
We are following the Houston Stars pattern by Gwenfai Rees Griffiths published some years ago in British Patchwork and Quilting magazine.
