Happy and productive day

Yesterday I drove up to Gisborne to spend the day with the lovely Gisborne Girls, Marg, Tracee and  Donna , Donna hosted us in her Owlery
We had talked about making a convergence quilt together for over a year, Donna even sent out instructions, today the stars were aligned and we met up.. 
The table is set up, Donna has the air con on, we are ready to go.
I forgot to take photos of the first couple of steps

but here are my strips joined, cut and now sewn back together.

Donna part way on the first re sewing

some of Tracees strips, love the colours here
Donnas work at lunch break

Margs,

Mine
Tracees

Then we read the next part of the pattern...and so we did!! Not the chocolate cake, but lunch made by Donna, which was wonderful.
We carried on after lunch, I have to say cutting into the joined sections was scary, but I got myself together and off we went, slicing, repositioning and sewing, and we finished up the day with these



It is interesting how the quilt tops come out, so hard to imagine when you start out with four squares of fabric,

Happy day, happy people.
Happy stitching.

Cool quilt! And the instructions on the pattern are much better than: "quilt as desired".......:-)

It's so effective. Does my head in trying to work out how you made them look like that. Great to do it with others ... all of them look so very different
