lots of stitching

Tuesday is the day that the ladies like to come and sew. Of course I am there to lend a hand with my patterns.
The two Lyns, Pam and Marjory spent a pleasant day chatting, sewing and choosing lots of fabrics.
One of the Lyns had some problems with her quilt (Beth) but we managed to solve that with no reverse sewing......we just changed the pattern to fit!

This is Lynns "Japanese Windmills" quilt but she used American Reproduction fabric where as I used Japanese. It looked just wonderful up close.

So on Friday night I was off again to the Novocastrian Quilters Friday night group, and what a wonderful time I had. All of the ladies are so welcoming and friendly.
I caught up with Robyn and Helen who are making "Miss Elizabeth". They have both finished the centre of the quilt and are now adding the next round of borders.....cant wait to see them finished.
And here are more "Miss Elizabeth" tops in various stages of .....dare I say....undress!

I particularly like Linda's idea of having different coloured diamonds....I love that idea...wished I had thought of it!
Well the dinner is on cooking and I have made a cake so I think its time  time for me to do some of my own sewing this afternoon.




  1. Beautiful works in progress, lovely colours. It's stitching time of the afternoon for me too.

  2. Yes Susan it is nice to see my quilts made in other peoples fabric choices.

  3. These are really beautiful! I am new to hexies and to say 'addicted' is an understatement. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Oh once you get started on hexagons it really is hard not to get addicted!
