We had a Kris Kringle on Saturday night and I received these two lovely fat quarters
We were also asked to guess a number between 1 and 20...I guessed 8 and was given these great fat quarters
This was part of what Judy got sone on the retreat, there was another quilt top done but I just grabbed this photo as she was packing up. The top on the left was made from fabric her sister brought back from Japan, the middle too was made drom scraps from a quilt made 25 years ago!! The one on the right was made from 9 16 inch squares I think, they were stacked and cut and rearranged and sewn back together four times.
I am beginning work on the next paper pieced animal...the hedgehog
And Sue is busy working away on her beautiful fabrics.
I had a good drive home, we had some visitors later that evening
And it pays to keep an eye on things when you ask for help of the comouter kind 'cos you end up with photos like this!! 😀
Shane and Steph stayed Sunday and headed home Monday
Steph was trying to get a photo of the Supervisor so
we all joined in!!
Today I have done some grocery shopping and house cleaning..all the exciting things that wait for you when you go away for a few days!! But I did get to the machine late this afternoon
And made two little scrappy house blocks for the Bellarine Row by Row..I was going to sew them by hand but have decided it is much quicker on the machine!!
This is as far as I got with the hedgehog, I need to set the fabric out again and continue sewing. Maybe tomorrow..the large piece has 18 bits to sew on...gets a little involved!!
This block is part of a sew along hosted by Juliet of the The Tartankiwi, she makes the most amazing paper pieced animals and birds and she has a book coming out soon which is exciting.
I had better go and rescue dinner.
