Sewing with Cathy

This past Saturday afternoon, Cathy and I got together to sew some blocks together to make a comfort quilt for the London Friendship Quilter's Guild.  Several guild members made friendship star blocks in red and blue for this quilt.  The blocks above were made by me!

It did not take too long to sew 35 blocks together and add the border.  I think this quilt really sparkles! Cathy will be quilting this quilt and another volunteer will be adding the binding.  We hope that more blocks will be donated at our September meeting so that more quilts can be made.

On the weekend, I cleaned up this corner of my sewing room and my husband and I put up the floating shelf above my cutting table.  The bins to the right of the table each have projects that need to be quilted in them.  My rulers are all organized in the ruler holder on the right side of the table.  Other corners of the sewing room do not look like this yet...  LOL!  The cutting table is custom made to my (short) height so that I don't hurt my back when cutting fabric.  (made by Eddycrest)

I spent some time on Sunday afternoon quilting.  This is the back of the quilt.  I will show the front when it is finished.  I hope to work on this quilt again tonight. 

Linking up to Let's Bee Social.


  1. Red and Blue is such a striking combination always. I like how your quilt top looks very cheerful

  2. Such a pretty quilt. I love these friendship star blocks. You will like that lower cutting table. I cut the legs on mine as I'm short, too, and my back is grateful for it! Love that ruler holder!

  3. The friendship star blocks are great in a scrappy two colour version. Question: Does your floating shelf interfere with the lighting as you are cutting? I'm a fanatic when it comes to good lighting.

  4. Good cause! Nice bright quilt to brighten someone's day!
