Quilt Hanging 2019. Part 3 Photo heavy...

Two years ago I completed my Splendid Sampler quilt and some the ladies at Patch decided to to make the blocks as a group project.
They were completed in time to hang at the Quilt Show....

We also did  workshops on Bionic Bags
and Mondo Bags ......

Here are same more of my favorite quilts....

Some time ago one of lovely members Helen saw these flowers made from the top of drink bottles and decided they would be perfect for us to have them as decorations for the show and tables in the dining room...Lots of work by her and helpers but they were gorgeous....

It was very busy all day with folks enjoying a cuppa and home cooked goodie made by all our members. Also our great chef Linda baked fresh scones all day. Yummy..

Well that's all for this Quilt show , hope you enjoyed sharing some of it through my posts....

Must away and get some housework done.........

Happy Stitching

Hugs  Maria 😊

FNSI for October,

As it was the third Friday of the month again it was time to join the lovely Wendy for an evening of sewing and even though I've been in bed all week with a nasty bug it was nice to do a little sewing.

I managed to only do a little quilting on the Baby Beach Ball Quilt...

Thank you Wendy for getting me behind the machine again even for awhile.. Will enjoy visiting others HERE over the next week and also do a post on our Quilt Hanging which was fantastic...

Must away and make a cuppa,

Happy Stitching

FnwFs for October

Last night I enjoyed an evening with Cheryll and friends for FnwFs but before I started to sew I tidied the  "Cave " ..

Sew that was what I worked on ...


Thank you Cheryll for another lovely evening for Fnwfs and I'll pop over to visit others HERE

Must away as I need a cuppa.....

Happy Stitching
