Earlier this week, Christine and I got together one evening to work on arcs for our Indian Orange Peel Quilts. I started working on 10 more arcs and Christine got started on a few as well.
Last night, 7 of us got together to work on arcs at Jacqui's house. We sewed and sewed and then stopped for a delicious supper of pad thai, salad and dessert. After supper, I finished off the 10 arcs that I started earlier in the week and started 12 more before heading home for bed.
I got up early this morning to make some "Bananaberry Bombs"--Banana Blueberry muffins (The recipe is from Looneyspoons by Janet and Greta Podleski) so that I could take them to Jacqui's when they were still warm. We were well fed all day again--muffins, fruit, tea and coffee for morning snack; homemade turkey soup, fresh bread and buns, fruit and vegies and some sweet stuff for lunch and then cheese and crackers, more fruit, tea and coffee as well as leftover desserts in the afternoon.
Lots of sewing and chatting took place all day as the 8 of us sewed and ironed and trimmed our arcs. Everyone's arcs are a bit different depending on colour and fabric choices. It will be fun to see how all of the quilts turn out!
I finished off the 12 arcs that I started the night before for a total of 22 completed arcs.
I will try to finish off my other arcs later this week. I am hoping to have them done shortly so that I can do some other projects before the 2nd class for this quilt in mid-March.
