A Sewing Weekend

Another great weekend has come and gone.  Dinner with Barbara and Jenni on Friday night - we thought about going to the pictures but, as often happens, too much to chat about.  On Saturday afternoon I visited my brother and sister-in-law to drop off a wedding present for my nephew.  Mum was there too.  Also visited some friends then spent the rest of the weekend either in the sewing room or on the couch stitching.  Saturday was a beautiful day but the cold and rain is back again.

Yesterday morning I finished putting together Oh Cherry Churn Dash.  These blocks have been finished since early March.  I need to find a backing then it will go on the frame to be quilted.  It's a whopper ~79 " x 93".


Continuing with more Oh Cherry Oh fabric - a few Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks - working out block settings.  Some blocks will be on point and some will be straight.  These blocks have been hanging around since October last year - probably time to put the quilt top together. 


Next a couple of rows on Picnic - am about halfway with this quilt top.  I have a deadline - September.


During the week I started stitching the next Gingham Girls block - finished one little stitchery last night.


"Broadchurch" started on Friday night.  Anything with David Tennant is worth watching and this looks like it's going to be a top show.

Your quilts are lovely, you have been busy. I watched Broadchurch when it was sown in the UK earlier this year and it was very good - keeps you guessing up to the last episode.

Love the Picnic quilt...have been eyeing off those lovely yellow/black/grey prints! I watched Broadchurch and loved it..not so happy with the new Saturday night line up now Death in Paradise has finished...I think the jury is still out on Father Brown! Sounds like you had a fantastic weekend...so much packed in to two days!

Gotta love that Oh Cherry fabric! Glad you are getting lots of use from it. Love the quilt you have half way through, yellow black grey.... very funky looking! Gingham girls is getting there, so much work in these blocks and so worth it because they are so gorgeous!

I love your quilts with the white backgrounds and bright primary colour blocks. I had visions of doing something similar with a farmers wife type quilt. Having seen your Sylvia's bridal sampler, I think it will look beautiful.
