Easter sewing?

We didn't meet on Monday because of the Easter holiday, but there might have been sewing on these works-in-progress from last week ...

Yvette is making  beautiful progress on 'Round the Garden'
(Wendy Williams 's pattern). We love watching it come to life
under Yvette's skilful needle but it's a bit like a really good book
that you want to read and read, but you don't want it to end ...
Susan is making little hexie flowers (1/2" pieces),
and maybe reading a magazine or two ...
Julie is doing hand applique - but she has a machine
stitched project on the go too.
Elaine W is hand quilting a big quilt with lots of hand applique
as well - she will not run out of sewing this week!
If Helen has time for sewing over the next week or so, she
might be binding one of these large quilts that came back from
the long arm quilter last week.  The one in the top photos is made
largely from vintage fabrics, including some repurposed curtains.
The  floral stripe in the pieced backing (upper right) was
Helen's childhood bedroom curtains, made by her grandmother.
