Our Secret Santa budget was £3 so I made this little redwork wallhanging.

Secret Santa made by me

Our Chairman's Challenge was to make a Christmas card. Mine is a copy of the lovely PP one that I received from Irene a couple of years ago.

  1. My latest project, made for my son and his girlfriend for Christmas. A jelly roll pattern originally, but I bought by the meter so that I could make to the requested colours.Stars to dream under , backstars to dream under

Beautiful, Steph. I love the way at first sight it looks like a regular layout, and then on closer inspection you see the different fabric placements in the stars.

I would find it hard to let this one go.

I am taking part in a Round Robin in my group. Progress so far. The owners do not follow the Forum, as far as I know.

The Kaleidoscope block is mine. I have asked for Modern, Abstract borders. I made the Piano Keys border (Bright, Colourful). I made the Triangles border ( Calm, Symmetrical). I made the Checkerboard/Pinwheel border ( Two Tone, Traditional).

Two more rounds to go before I get my quilt top back.

Group Round Robin, progress so far

That is beautiful Margaret. I've not done any sewing lately. I must get my mojo back soon.

Well, I have reviewed my year by looking at my 2019 album and I am somewhat disappointed. I did lose my mojo for a while, some of my finishes were larger than usual, and I do have 2 WIPs on the go and the Round Robin, but I seem to have achieved very little this year.

How have the rest of you fared?

Here's hoping for a much more productive 2020.

I agree Margaret. I have a lovely place to sew and an embarrassing amount of fabric so must get on with it this year.

Cosi w/e 2019 GnomesCosi w/e 2019 Easy Dresden PlateCosi w/e 2019 bias weavingBit late posting but at my Cosi Patchwork hotel weekend at end of last year we did 3 workshops. A woven bias binding block. I finished this one but really don't know what to do with it! I chose the colours for the kit via WhatsApp and they are not what I expected. Also it's very stiff because it's ironed onto some strong plasticy fusible sheet. Any ideas? Maybe a bag?

The easy Dresden Plate I do like and am in process of making mine into a cushion. They project was actually for a round bag.

Third was a pair of gnomes for Christmas. I bought the kit but couldn't do much of it with my broken arm as it involved a lot of hand sewing through thick fabric. Photo of a finished one.

Was a great weekend though.Cosi w/e 2019  workshop
