Sewing Day

Design by Pam and Nicky Lintott

We were a very reduced group of six who gathered for our sewing day but there was plenty of lunch and lots of sewing. I was a bit more organised than usual and joined my border sections and added them to the centre top before going home.
This is our Bonnies quilt for this year, a departure from our usual practice as it was a rotary cut jelly roll quilt and we took our machines to meet ups. No drawing round templates!
I had bought this BaliPop and background to go with it a long time ago so I was pleased to find a suitable project at long last. It's going to be a summer coverlet. We've had a hot summer this year so the cool colours will work well and no need for wadding.
I will cut down two borders to 6" and may do the other two to 4" - will try it on the bed first.
And Judy O had projects to share with us.
Judy was working on this delicate project at our last retreat and now it is assembled and quilted,
So pretty!


And this is from my Stack and whackery squares workshop

I have tried a stack and whack with six repeats and eight repeats but never one with just four. (Of course I marked with a pencil and cut them, knowing if I tried to cut more than one at a time, I would mess up). I always envy you your quilting buddies.
