A beginning

I have been tracing cutting and ironing this morning,
this fussy cutting is a challenge! More of a challenge for me this morning was to remember I needed to add the quarter of an inch sewing allowance as I was cutting!! Lucky there was a little extra fabric!

Progress as at lunch time and only a couple of scorched finger tips!! Pretty happy with what I have done so far...you will notice there are no tiny hexies just yet!! :-)
Yesterday was sit and sew at the Bellarine Quilters, show and tell was interesting
Jill has finished this beautiful quilt, all sewn by hand, the quilting done by a local quilter.

Lorraine turned a doona cover into a more interesting doona cover by adding the applique..isn't that a clever idea.
I am off to Gisborne this afternoon, so had better make a move and get ready.
Happy sewing.

Glad you had enough fabric to redo some cut out. Now you have some more hand stitching ready for those group sewing days.
