A small finish, some progress and a fun Friday.
I have finished appliqueing Wanda's block. Wanda has this design in her Blogger profile. (Click on her name to go to her blog) This is her own design and Wanda was kind enough to share it with me. I love the intricacy of this design!
In the last few weeks I have joined 2 sew-alongs.
First is a Piecework Sampler by Cheri of Quilts By Cheri.
These are my blocks so far...
...and some of my favourites..
I have used all French General fabrics for this project. The next step will be to cut some more sashing and cornerstones and then stitch it all together.
The other machine project is Lori and Randy's Medallion Sew-along. I have made the pinwheel blocks for one of my centres.
Well, maybe I should concentrate on one project at a time, because I cut all those pinwheels a bit too small!!! Each side has one extra pinwheel! Oooppps!!! I have decided I am not going to make them all again, so my block will end up a bit smaller than it should be. Hopefully I can fudge the blocks for the next step! Lol
Friday last week I joined Linda, Bev and more than 20 other ladies for an Antique Quilt Day. What a great day!!! Sharon brought her quilt!!!!
Sharon and I had our blocks with us so we laid them out on the quilt. Sharon's quilt was made in 1852 for her Great Great Grandmother's wedding.
What an amazing sight to see our new blocks against the original quilt!!
Meredithe has lots more photos from the day on her blog.
I am making slow progress on Jacob's Coat.
It is another beautiful Autumn morning here in Melbourne. Its a little crisp at the moment, but it promises to be another lovely, sunny day. I hope everyone has a wonderful day! :)
