Finished PhDs and Adopted projects

On our April Saturday we all adopted a focus for our day and have now (with help from Elaine with binding) have 'finished' two more quilts. Because they are sandwich quilts they will need a little more detailed quilting and of course a label but basically finished.

Japanese Jewels - won by Liz (NZ)
Blue Flowers - won by Heather (Deniliquin, NSW)

Carol and Elaine created wonderful ideas for joining the Machu Pichu Star blocks.

Karen G joined all the Purple Flower blocks so that is a top ready for borders prior to finishing.

Karen W completed the 'in the ditch' quilting of the Blue Flowers quilt then I bound it while away the following week. It is great to have a bit of hand sewing to do while you chat.

Linda and a few others decided to complete the new block with the support of others. We now have quite a few of these completed.

It seemed that our quilting day was most productive with two quilts actually ready for raffling amongst ourselves. Liz has put up a picture of her finished Liberty block on her blog.

See you all again on 20 June. Happy quilting.
