Our monthly community sewing day was last week - it turned out to be a day for very generous fabric donations, and we caught up on quite a bit of pin basting and even some sewing!
|Marg K brought us three gorgeous children's quilt tops ...|
|... two of which were basted using using backing fabric |
donated on the day!
|We had a good close-up view of Miriam's Pokemon quilt |
requested by her son for his recent 21st. Note the cleverly
interlocking stars - she's going to write up the pattern.
You can see the whole top in Miriam's Instagram photo
|Elaine W was sewing beautiful array of spring coloured |
strips into rail fence blocks ...
|... and anyone who has made a chevron design by any method |
knows how important it is to lay the blocks out ahead of joining
them, to make sure they are the right way around to make
the chevrons. Trickier than it looks.
|Sue C found very nice circle print for the back of her |
|... And then she tested out how machine piecing some large |
hexagons with triangles might work. The two-piece hexagons
are William Morris prints.
