Saturday was QTYW day for the London Friendship Quilters' guild. Christine, Cathy and I sat together and sewed and sewed...
Christine was working on a Christmas quilt and hopes to get it done before this Christmas...
Cathy is making I spy quilts for her grandchildren for Christmas. She finished piecing one quilt and started the blocks for the next quilt. Cathy had a very productive day!
There are lots of fun fabrics in this quilt!
The second quilt started out with stars with an I Spy novelty print in the centres.
The star blocks have an interesting secondary pattern going on!
Cathy likes to sew in her sock feet--there is a downside to this...
I worked on an old UFO--I bought the kit to make a snowman wall hanging many years ago and about 5 years ago, started to make the wall hanging at a QTYW day. I had not touched this project again until Saturday when I finished machine appliquing the pieces on the quilt, quilting it at the same time. I also quilted a cross hatch design on the background. By the time supper was served, I had this project completed to this point.
I hope to get the button eyes and mouth done on this week along with the binding. I will be hanging this wall hanging in my family room this winter.
After supper, I added the final borders to my Swoon quilt top so it is ready to be quilted now--I just have to piece the backing.
I will post a picture of the completed snowman quilt as soon as it is done.
All in all, Saturday was a great day--sewing, time with friends and lots of inspiration to be had as I wandered around the room to look at everyone else's projects.
