Last night...

we had a gathering of the Gisborne Quilting group at Margs house and Tania taught us Foundation piecing......her pattern was for the log cabin....but I decided to do a block from the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler as I am already working on that...the first bag of pattern and fabric I opened, I had prepared it at home, I found I had left out one vital piece of material!!! Duh!!! It was the number 1 piece!! Back to the drawing board for me...luckily I had some others prepared and they actually had the right bits of fabric so I was able to get sewing.....
much business happening here...now where did I put that piece of fabric???

Tania supervising Donna....

Marg trimming her block...

the finished blocks and mine not finished just yet...some very clever ladies in this group and Tania's teaching was wonderful...

Ta da!!! This is the block Night and Noon....took me another 40 minutes or so to get it finished...

These are all mini quilts Marina (Gisborne Marina) has made using foundation piecing...

she just used scraps...

Isn't this so pretty..

and this...sorry blogger has turned this around!!   Didn't take many photos as I was busy working!! I can hear the phew's from here!!! Lol!!
Happy sewing.

Ui tried foundation piecing once, but it just didn't click for me......maybe I need a better teacher! Everyone's blocks turned out well, looks like a great night.

Great class and some lovely blocks created. I have done foundation piecing a couple of times but get a bit confused. Need more practice I think. Looove those little quilts.

Well done to Tania! Foundation piecing has always terrified me. The girls blocks are lovely. Marinas mini quilts are beautiful works of art x
