Had a text message from Miss Helen on Friday asking if I’d like a trip to a quilt shop. No need to ask me twice for that sort of adventure! We arranged to meet at Gail B‘s then back to my place for lunch and an afternoon sewing. I knew Maree was working in the morning but issued her with an invitation to join us for the afternoon too.
Helen and I had great fun scouring the shelves for necessary (and some fortuitous!) fabrics. I’d somehow missed this piece of “Outback Wife”and needed it and these other bits!Helen is contemplating another embroidery quilt and picked up theseand these fabrics which you’ll see very soon in her sewingThank goodness for Mr Aldi as I called in there on the way home for something for us to eat and Maree brought these that she’d madeHelen is infatuated with hand quilting at the moment and has finished hand quilting three quilts since the beginning of Winter! This is the latest and she’s also making star blocksMaree is stitching up more hexagon blocksand I started hand quilting one of the new template samples – just a teaser!Meredithe x
