June Quilting Weekend

As normal our June quilting weekend was begun with morning tea. We are using a beautiful new tablecloth made by Jane in Wolverhampton. It is most unusual. There is also the lovely tea set Surrey gave me for such occasions.
Here is a view of Leonie hard at work on the design wall. In the background are some of our other projects. The Brown Sampler Quilt is now professionally quilted and looks great. Just the binding left to go. Helen's Stars are complete. The other one is my project that I wanted to start in 1983. Some projects are slow. It is a bird's eye view of English countryside. Embellishments, woodlands and hedges are still to come.
Betty, Evelyn, Patricia and Elaine busy at work on Patricia's Cross quilt.
Linda enjoying another cuppa with Leonie.
Patricia's Cross blocks on the design wall. We are trying a quilt-as-you-go technique on this one to see how it works. The top row is all quilted as individual blocks then joined back and front with sashing which also has batting in it.
In all we had a great weekend but missed Robyn who was absent for the first time ever.
