June Quilting Weekend

We had six busy workers this weekend - Leonie, Evelyn, Patricia, Robyn, Elaine and Betty. Helen and Marion had sent their completed blocks back as well so they were with us virtually.
Our first task was to finish our Betty's Basket quilt. We've now quilted it and added the binding but need to hand finish the binding next time, label it and tie of the loose ends.
Our next task was to arrange all the blocks from Evelyn's Bee Quilt. There was much discussion and negotiation but we ended up with an arrangement that should work well. This of course meant a shopping trip to Spotlight where we found sashing, binding, backing and wadding to suit.

Then our next lucky dip revealed Leonie's flower fabric and block so Leonie was able to complete her two blocks because of course she already had matching fabrics.

Don't forget to add the next date to your diary for 23-24 August. See you all then.
