Friday stitching

Stitching was here at p and c this week, and we had a few lovely surprises during the day!

Miss Clever Clogs Helen has worked out a new way of using the Hoshi Stars template set to create a Star of Hope

20150221-124132.jpgUnfortunately the photo doesn’t do justice to the colours – sorry Helen, but I love the block! (Ask at your LQS for the template set.) I’m going to make one soon and share the method with you.

On the way, Helen stopped at Craft Haven and picked up these lovely prints

20150221-124646.jpgHelen is also still loving her appliqué

20150221-124402.jpgMrs Mac’s borders are coming along nicely, and she’s experimenting with another little block

20150221-124459.jpgOur first surprise (well, I knew about them all, but a surprise for the girls!!) was a visit from Louise. The inside of Louise’s sewing bag looks intriguing.

20150221-125043.jpgOh, her sweet little Liberty dresses.

20150221-125215.jpgNext to arrive was Maree, fresh from a machine appliqué class with Emma Jansen. Look at what she made!

20150221-125515.jpgQuilting still to be completed and shouldn’t take Maree long to do it. While chatting with us, Maree made another Maru block

20150221-125736.jpgIn amongst the sewing, chat and laughter, the last surprise arrived in the form of quilted quilts from Heather!

By the end of the afternoon I had finished the centres for the remaining twelve full Steampunk blocks,

20150221-130117.jpgso I was a very happy girl.

The Hot is upon us again, so no binding this weekend, instead I’ll be prepping the seven half blocks for Steampunk. Sooooo close to finished!

What are you up to this weekend?

    Come on Meredithe, you are close to the end with your cute blocks !!
    This weekend, I’m going to sew my tumbling blocks beetween them, maybe a little bit of quilting and make a set of bow-ties !! OUF !!! 🙂

  3. Clever Helen! Mrs Mac’s borders ar looking good. I love the Liberty dresses – I may have to ask Malcolm to draft the block for me – and then I could finally start using my lovely Liberty fabrics! Maree’s work os fabulous. Steam Punks are brilliant. The only think missing was food!!
    We had snow this afternoon ………
