Happy sewing

Today Tania and I have been to a charity sewing day up at Macedon, organised by Kerrie of Black Forest Quilting and her sewing group...we have the choice of 4 patterns to make or we could go along and work on something we already had happening. There was a sumptuous feast for every eating time of the day, morning tea, then soups and bread rolls for lunch, followed by my favourite pavlova (Yum!!) and fresh fruit.....sorry no food photos because I was too busy eating!! Lol! Then later in the afternoon there was more in the way of cake, sponge, slice, for afternoon tea!! We were very well looked after!!  And I even got a little sewing done!!
star quilt relaxing!!

this had a name something like flowers...sorry can't remember

this one was made using a layer cake, lovely!

this was made with a new fusing product that you can run through your printer, print on the shapes, then you cut them out and fuse to the fabric, the attach to the backing fabric...love the stained glass effect
Tania placing her fabric on the design wall.......she has surprised me today by using bright colours, mostly Kaffe Fasset and some batiks!!

 sewing piling up!.....

more happening.....

busy quilters at work.....

Tania back at the design wall....

my central piece of the Star quilt....wouldn't know I LOVE batik's would you!! Lol!

busy sewers again....

Yep...here we are!  We had a great day, didn't get as much sewing done as I had hoped to, but there is always this evening to continue on....
This is roughly pinned but the first point section is finished, a big flying geese block I am told!! I was impressed....but then not so when I was told the seams are all stretchy so handle with care and pin every inch, and sew slowly! My sewing supervisor checked it over for me and gave it the sniff approval! Lol!
Happy sewing!
