Third Saturday of the month

Yes it is that time again and on Saturday it was off to Merri's for our Saturday of sewing.  We missed Kerry, who has not been well but is now on the mend. And welcomed Clare, who rarely makes it to our Saturday gathering.  

First up, Barb was working on her Dear Jane.  Here are a few of her blocks...

...and her Dear Jane Diary.  Barb is making sure she does not reuse any fabric by keeping a record of what fabrics she has used.

Merri was busy stitching this block from the Antique Wedding Sampler revisited.

And the fabric used for the broderie perse / applique are scraps from a true antique fabric purchased from Mary Koval last year.

Do you recognise these flowers Dorothy?

Clare brought along "Antique Applique", a very, very old UFO / PHD that she is working on.  As you can see the centre is all done, the challenge for the group was to help with ideas on what to do as a border.  Di came up with a lovely design for a swag and tulip border.

And finally, back from the quilter, Merri's completed Mary Brown.  Katrina has done a wonderful job as always.

Until next time,



  1. Love the block by Merri...gorgeous.
    And Barb's idea of keeping a tab on her fabrics is great.
    Love all the work you and your friends do...

  2. Oh wow, what a talented group. Such lovely work.

  3. Wonderful Show & Tell as usual, thank you for sharing with us.

  4. How beautiful, such lovely fabrics, colours and textures.
