Christine discovered that her cat had sent a little gift to keep us entertained...
Christine worked on some elephant blocks for her Elephants on Parade quilt.
Christine also made and machine sewed the binging on a quilt that we made together for a refugee child.
Jacqui worked on her grand-daughter's flower garden quilt.
This quilt was designed at Jacqui's request by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.
Pat was given a kit to make a snowman wall hanging by her sister so she brought it along and spent her time tracing the shapes onto freezer paper.
Carol brought a suitcase full of UFO's and managed to finish off a few projects that had been lingering in her sewing room.
She made a slab for the Canadian Quilt bee first to get warmed up.
Next, she quilted a pillow cover and put the backing on it. The fabrics in the pillow are leftovers from a quilt she made for a friend from his Hawaiian shirt collection. I did a demo for her and Christine about how to put a zipper in the backing of a pillow. Carol also brought along a quilt top she made at the Beaver Island Quilt retreat a few years ago and we all came up with some ideas for quilting it. She left inspired to get it quilted and bound!
I worked on the purple four patches for Bonnie Hunter's En Provence mystery quilt. I have done the neutral four patches and now, about half of the purple ones.
I don't have a lot of variety in my purple stash...
I made turkey vegetable soup and rhubarb crisp for lunch.
At the end of the day, I made another pincushion with leftovers from a yellow one I made earlier this week.
The yellow one was from one of the patterns I won from Crazy Mom Quilts.
Jacqui gave me this nifty organizer for my small rulers. She bought it at the office supply store. Isn't it cute???
I need to organize another sewing day sometime soon!
