The Queen Beez had a lovely socially distanced day of sewing and talk at Maggies today. I took the tulips quilt top (to be called Tiptoe) which I had finished the day before. I'll sandwich it at Lower Hardres on Saturday. I also took some light fabrics to cut into 3" HST's on Maggie's accuquilt machine.
Then I marked three more sashing strips on the dining table which I handquilted during the rest of the day.
Maggie was hand quilting her diamonds piece and on the wall can be seen her shimmer top awaiting longarming at some future date. I have pattern and fabrics for this quilt but have got no further.
Mary's brother bought her a pack of themed batiks on his Canadian trip and now she is making a quilt from them for him as a memento of their trip.
She also sewed the binding of her "Suburbia" quilt.

I have finished my inner tulips top and started to add borders, I decided to add an inner green border as just adding the blue didn't look right. I cut the borders to the size of the sides so will add cornerstones. Because I want to add a four patch of yellow and blue I'll trim the borders down to match. The binding will be red check.

Not so much to show today. I took a morning picture of my quilt top and then worked on a long ago workshop project which I'm not so keen on now because of the blue background but I'd already cut out all the pieces so need to realise my investment of time - by spending more time! Photographs in due course.
I forgot to to say most of the morning our bubble had a mask making session and lesson with Maggie. I'm pleased with mine - photos to follow.
Meanwhile . .

I went for a walk before breakfast. The light was dazzling and I snapped this mulberry tree in the drive sparkling in the early morning sun.
Lots of activity on the sewing front with projects coming along thick and fast. I worked on my tessellation quilt all day finishing just before bedtime. Time to clean out the machine and change the needle ready for a new project tomorrow.
