Diann and I have decided to make a quilt each: Kiss Me designed by Fig Tree & Co.
Today's task was to choose our fabrics: this was easy for me. I'm using a "Vintage Modern" jelly roll along with the cream/beige spot for background, pink floral for borders (maybe) and the red spot for binding.
The weekend is for cutting out.
On Tuesday night the stitching girls came over - I put them to work helping me lay out the "Picnic" blocks - my least favourite part of the quilt-making process.
Looks like the girls got the colour placement right first go - there are a few blocks I will need to turn 90 degrees. It's looking great. Might sew a few together this morning.
This pretty tub is filled with all the half-square triangle off-cuts - over 1200 pieces of fabric. One day, maybe, one day I will do something with them.
The girls are coming back this afternoon for a play-date. Paula will have her first turn on the quilting frame. Perhaps I should take Sarah's advice and offer Paula a couple of glasses of wine before she starts :)
Rhonda will be making her first bag. Yesterday at lunchtime I took out my hexagons and decided that the row I was stitching would be the last. I'm over sewing these particular hexies, so I'll be starting to put my bag together along with Rhonda.
Had a great time last night: had my usual hairdresser appointment (Adage in Church Street). Barbara and two other friends were there. Barbara and I decided to go out for dinner afterwards. Dinner was so delicious and I had way too much (of course).
