This morning, I set off with a suitcase full of fabric and supplies for a full day of sewing with other members of the London Friendship Quilters' Guild. I am happy to tell you that I have finished off almost all of my Christmas sewing! I have one more small gift to make which should take about 1 hour to do. Since most of the things I made today are gifts, I cannot show very many pictures.
I can show you the placemats I made for Meals on Wheels. This is an annual project for local seniors who have a meal delivered to them on Christmas day. Last year, members of our guild made about 200 placemats for this charity. I made two placemats today and handed them in to the community outreach committee chair person.
The backs are the same snowman fabric as on the fronts.
I had a small accident this morning while working on one of the gifts I made. I tried to quilt my finger into the quilt. I now have a hole in my nail, right through the other side of my finger. I spent the rest of the day with a sore finger covered in a bandaid...but don't worry, I did not get any blood on my project! My sore finger made hand stitching the binding an interesting experience...
