Thank you Margaret,

Hubby had to work away for a couple of days, "Oh dear what a pity", I still need to sort out the dining room to have tea this evening... although I have a sewing rom there isn't room for quilting a bit quilt, this one is 63" x 73" I added 6 extra blocks to this one, and turning it would have cleared all the surfaces around, so the dining table at full extend was in order. The piecing went together really well, I'd happily make this pattern again.

I had an autograph book too, it's somewhere in the house but I don't have any celebrities only family and friends.

A new baby quilt for 2019. You might recognise some of the fabric from my squishies on my birthday this year. Some were in my stash and some were sent by some of you (sorry ....I can't remember who now) for use in Linus quilts etc. Thank you all! Rx

Looks amazing.

An ancient UFO zapped in March. I am told it is at least 10 years old. I can see from my albums that I was working on it in 2013. Then it was left again. Quilted in 3 pieces and was very difficult to get through the arm of the machine I had at that time. A breeze to finally finish on my bigger machine.

Just finished this one and call it 'Memories of Maggi'. Used my collection of Maggi Birchenough's hand dyes. Colours are more subtle in the flesh. Maggi was a modern quilter, but I wanted to let her fabrics shine so chose this simple pattern. This free pattern is 'Scrappy Squares' by Moda and is assembled in a completely different way to my ancient UFO above.

they are both beautiful Margaret.

I am going to do a scrappy back for my daughters quilt. You have given me the inspiration to get on with it.

Just been making samples for my workshop in September. It's about discovering kaleidoscope blocks made from just one single fabric. The cushions use two, three and six triangles in each block and there are two others, a four patch and an eight patch.

It's becoming more difficult to find topics that intrigue our members.

We had a great workshop a couple of weeks ago when one of our members, who had made a Laura Heine collage of a cat inspired us to have a go. We each took our own drawings along and had a wonderful day playing with fabrics. We were a bit like kindergarten kids. It was fun.

Thank you Eileen. Enjoy making the scrappy backing. (Much hilarity when our chairwoman, in her end if year review, accidently dropped the 's' when describing a demo given by one of our members!)

No, Rosemary, I was tempted by Maggi's threads, but I am not really a hand sewer.

I love looking at Laura Heine's intricate designs, but her patterns are very expensive here.

Both your cushions and sewing machine collage are great. I bet that workshop was fun!
