Summer days.........

After a slow start summer has well and truly arrived with temperatures way too hot!  It doesn't stop us from sewing though and the third Saturday of January saw the Sisters travel to Barwon Heads for a day beside the seaside at Clare's family beach house.  There were old projects and new being worked on.
Hard at work
Here is the latest update on progress being made.  And first up from Barb, lots of piecing of the final border of blocks for the Burnt Quilt.

 With each lozenge on the setting squares fussy cut and different.

Ann has started sewing Merri's version of the quilt from the Beamish Museum.  Her colours are brighter than Merri's. Both are beautiful.

Merri brought along her now completed Civil War Bride quilt.  She just needed some help drawing the faces on her bride and groom.

And a close up of one of the blocks, love the vase and the barley twist legs on the table!

Sue continues working on her hexagons, and it is growing but still a long way to go!

And last but definitely not least, for all the quilters booked into any of the 4 days of Threadbear's Applique School feast your eyes on this!  The centre medallion block that Di has created for the class.  It is beautiful and the fussy cutting - ohh la la!  

Until next time,
