We Must Be Crazy!

Karen called a last minute Midday to Midnight at the shop for Saturday night……and I said yes! It’s only a couple of weeks since the last one, but I do enjoy these sessions!!

The heat is rolling on, but Karen promised to have the air conditioners roaring, fans on and plenty of cold water to refresh us. Fourteen ladies were able to take advantage of Karen’s invitation, and here’s a snippet of what we got up to….

20130310-124954.jpg…there was some amazing English Paper Piecing going on, including one of Sue Daley’s, and a fabulous version from Anne of Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses quilt. ( This link has a lovely photo of Lucy’s quilt. ) I was almost tempted to EPP, but after reading Anne’s copy of the book on this quilt, it can be hand pieced…….and could become a 2014 project…….!

20130310-130053.jpgThere was also a bit of bag, box and new project envy!….

20130310-130145.jpgAnd midnight madness wouldn’t be complete without a tour around the shop. Karen has some gorgeous new fabrics…..check them out…..

Unfortunately the heat and the not-sleeping-due-to-the-heat took its toll, and this participant piked out just after 9.00pm – the first time ever I’ve not made midnight!! Would you believe it was still 31 degrees at 9.15pm! Nevertheless, another fun, productive time!

Happy stitching

    I’m doing Patchwork of the Crosses using Inklingo – it is a really neat quilt to make. Love all the projects that you show.

    Looks like a grand time was had. Sometimes the best of intentions are overcome by the physical! Next time………..

    Patchwork of the Crosses looks lovely done in the CW fabrics, Karen (2nd comment) is making hers with handpiecing, looks lovely too. The fabric is very tempting, I don’t need any more fabric, but I do want more fabric ๐Ÿ™‚

    You must so be tired of the hot weather, I hope it ends soon. Lots of lovely projects to show. Being in a patchwork shop until midnight sounds like a dream come true!

    It sounds like such a good time! And a spur of the moment invite, even more fun. Love some of those projects. That elongated hexagon block is intriguing, never seen before. The shop’s new fabrics are so pretty. Drooling…

    Boy, those fabrics are all so gorgeous. I LOVE the quilt in the very first picture — don’t know what the pattern is called. The colors are so pretty too!
