There's a little bit of everything in this post!
I had a great day last weekend when I taught the Spools workshop at Natterjack Quilters.
One of the questions I was asked in the day was 'How many spools do most people get sewn in the day?'
Well I said then that I had not really ever been counting, but I can tell you now, no group had made a whole quilt top in the day. Until the Natterjacks did!
Here is the top:
And here are the lovely ladies:
They were sewing it from donated fabric and were aiming to complete it and the raise some money for Cancer Research and their local church. I think that is right, such a lovely group and great causes!
Around here the sewing has been a bit on the slow side. However, I am to catch up over the next fews weeks as we are away to France to ski, and I take some stitching to do too!
I will be working on these 'Rose Star One Patch' blocks from The Quilters Album of Patchwork Patterns by Jinny Beyer.
This is what I have done so far:
I plan on sewing about nine, but I will see how it goes, as they are very large. I should have put a ruler for scale in the shot!
And a quilt I have long admired as Lori has been working on it is this. I just love this, and she has done such great job!
See you all after Easter!
