Yesterday was my monthly quilt group meeting. Each of the committee members runs one or two meetings a year...it was my turn (it seems to come around very quickly!), and I asked everyone to bring lovely, lonely blocks to meet other lovely, lonely blocks, and we had a great time creating fun quilts from these. There were lots of interesting blocks... plenty for another playtime. Some ladies were sewing, others trimming and pressing. But lots of serious discussions! And a chance to talk,especially with newer members of the group.
|These were two sets of blocks that the makers didn't like anymore, the sixteen-patch sashed on two sides to enlarge.|
And today, because I didn't sew yesterday, I finished Block number 7 from Pat Sloan's Mystery Garden. I had forgotten I'd already cut some strips and had made the centre star, so that made it easy! There are 12 blocks (each 16" square) in total, but I'm aiming for 9 blocks so that it will be square.
