Sewing day

Every two months the Usual Suspects get together with other friends for a day of sewing, lunch, chat and cake. This time the cake had candles and lunch was accompanied by a small glass of something sparkly to wish a very special member of our group "Happy Birthday".
Hever top in three pieces.

Judi has more or less pieced together the Hever raffle quilt top which five of us made blocks for, batik stars on white-on-white; we think we'll be able to sell lots of tickets.
Hexagon pieces using varying sizes of units.

She's also made modern hexagon pieces inspired by Heather Hasthorpe which will be a Guild workshop project later in the year.
In fact Judi has been very busy, adding more samples of the previous modern log cabin workshop also inspired by Heather and making an envelope quilt.

Marigold has finished her centre Stonehouse blocks and laid them out . They very exquisitely sewn and so fresh and pretty.
Cheery rabbit made from suede fabric

and kangaroo likewise

Judy O has nearly completed an African hanging for her husband. There lots of quirky little details and she has some embellishments to add.

 All I did was organise Linus blocks and make one top but others are ready to go at the UFO day on Saturday. Photos to follow when complete.
