Friday stitching

Last Friday, stitching was here at p and c. I made a simple chicken, mango and avocado salad, and thoroughly enjoyed making another loaf of bread for our lunch.

Miss Helen finished the quilt top she had on her design wall last week

20150201-122232.jpgI love the touch of ric-rac

20150201-122255.jpgand she’s found the perfect backing for it too!

20150201-122321.jpgMrs Mac has been shopping too

20150201-122519.jpgand these are for her Lucy Boston.

Mrs Mac has also finished a quilt top. This was going to be the “trial” one, a practice before she started cutting into her “good” fabrics

20150201-122702.jpgbut she loves how this version has turned out! It’s from the “Sunday Morning Quilts” book and I think it’s gorgeous too! It’s so “Mrs Mac”!

20150201-122913.jpgIt’s turned into a bit of a memory quilt, with the first fabric she ever bought, her favourite hydrangea fabric, pieces from quilts she’s made for her daughter and grand daughters……….

    What a great piecing Mrs Mac’s “trial” flimsy is!!!! I truly love scrappy memory piecings and this idea is so flexible/adaptable to any size scraps. Ms Helen’s finish is, of course, totally lovely (how can one miss with pinwheels????) and that backing couldn’t be more perfect!!! A lovely/yummy share……………………….

    Oooh Yum — looks like you had a wonderful lunch — with just the right amount of chocolate (which is always mandatory in a healthy lunch!) Looks like some pretty projects too!!!
