Quite a crowd in October

Last weekend Karen, Karen, Carol, Linda and new member Cathy and I had a great day together working very hard in my very messy patchwork studio space.

Once the pieced backing for our sampler quilt top was complete we sandwiched it and tacked the sandwich together. Unfortunately the backing is about an inch short on one side so I have to extend that before quilting it.

Much time was spent pondering placement of the Japanese strip quilt top and perhaps it is ready to sew together next time.

Linda attached the label to Elaine's Hexagon quilt and that one was won by Christine who has recently moved. I have yet to hear back from her about what she would like to do with it.

We also started putting Robyn's Retro blocks on the design wall and pondered borders for Karen's Windmill blocks which have now all been sewn together.

Yesterday I spent some time up in my studio cleaning and clearing all the mess that had accumulated over time. I now have a lot of bits and pieces to go to Crowle Foundation but I also have lots of patchwork magazines that I need to bin unless anyone expresses an interest in some of them. If you would like some please let me know.
