the front, the Supervisor was keeping a watch out!!
and the back...no prizes for quessing what I will be doing tomorrow!!
Today I have been over to Barwon heads to the Seachange group for a class with Annette Packett - she taught us how to make the New York beauty block.
First we started choosing materials...that took a while!!! Lol!!
Then we cut the first pieces
and started the paper piecing, after much holding breath and concentration
I had these, which when trimmed
looked like this!! Yay!!!
these belonged to Lynne
these to Bronwyn
next we cut the top and bottom...mmmmm...curved seams! Aghhhhh!!!!
Phew the top went on ok, the inner circles I found really hard and got a couple of little tucks but I am not redoing them!!
So after some unsewing these are my blocks.
we had a great day and Annette is a wonderful teacher.
She showed us some of her quilts
Isn't this a cute mini...imagine making those blocks!! Something for you Elyte!!!
isn't this a beautiful mini quilt!!
On the way home I stopped to have a look at Ocean Grove, the sea was pounding in and it was high tide and a cold wind was blowing!!
Took a photo between rain showers..
The water is very high today!
Further down the beach a rainbow appeared.
I had better go and get some dinner organised.
