Had the first “official” sewing day on Saturday. Miss E brought along an embroidered table cloth she’s been working on, which had been started by a relation of Miss V’s….
…but instead of wielding embroidery floss on Saturday, Miss E brought along a project she’d “rediscovered” when having a little clean up…..
….these 16-patch blocks are made from a jelly roll, and Miss E kindly let me play with the strips. First I sorted them into colour ways….
…then took great delight in pairing them up…..
….them I pinned while Miss E cut and sewed. Very quickly there was a pile of finished blocks! Can’t wait to see it completed!
Miss E had also made good use of some fabric which was wrapped around a Christmas present, turning it into a mini bunting!…..
Maree had her lovely appliqué….
Lynne was working on a Mrs Billings border…
And Mrs Mac was stitching more hexagons. We think she has enough for at least 2 quilts now!! We played with settings – abutted….
…or with a triangle in between….
….we all voted for a triangle in between, which will be white, and the white surrounding a few of the block can be changed. Easy for us to say!!
