Another productive sewing day

Karen W, Karen G, Elaine, Cathy and I spent a very productive day last Friday up in the quilting studio.

We have now completed the sampler quilt. It really looks great with its pieced back and sampler front. We will do our draw for this quilt at our Christmas gathering (details coming soon). Cathy had lessons on mitred corners in binding and practised by sewing the binding onto the quilt then Cathy and Elaine spent a lot of time hemming the binding.

Karen W and Karen G spent time trimming the small 'japanese' blocks and then sewing these together. We will need a few borders to frame such a stunning top.

I attached the final borders to Karen's Windmills top so now it is ready to sandwich next time.

I think I have now received all the Robyn's Retro blocks so next time we'll be able to arrange them. Awkward because we have 14 blocks. If there is anyone out there who has not returned a block please do so soon so it can be included.

I am still waiting on some of Carol's blocks (including mine) so let's try and have those finished and returned by our Christmas gathering too.

In all we had a great time chatting and sewing and have a lot to be going on with next time. We decided to leave drawing another lucky dip block until our Christmas gathering when we will have 2 months to complete and return the new blocks.
