Yesterday us girls sewed another 4 blocks in Sylvia's Bridal Sampler....
|Queen Charlotte's Crown (22 pieces)|
Rambler (33 pieces)
Rolling Star (28 pieces)
Rolling Stone (29 pieces)
We have now done 130 of the 140 blocks and these are made up of 4209 pieces
It's hard to believe we are on the last 10 now - all being well we will have them all done by the end of the month
Christine and Lyn both came over with their vintage Featherweight machines, Christine's is the white one and she has been using hers for some time... Lyn has just got hers and it was her first outing to sew these blocks with us.
As you can see we spread out a fair bit - very much a working day with tea/coffee on the go all the time
They really are dear little machines and piece beautifully - it's really fun having them over
I have started with some sashing - as my blocks have not all turned out perfect 6 1/2 " I am adding sashing around all edges and trimming back to 7 1/2" so they fit well - I think with the neutral sashing any variations in the sizes will be disguised
The Splendid Sampler blocks come in at 2 per week - with the occasional bonus block as an extra
These are some of the latest one's I have done .... they truly are a set of Sampler with different techniques and styles - great fun
For my handwork I have started appliqueing the stitcheries on In My Garden (Natalie Bird) - they really are very sweet - there are hexagons to add also...... hmmmmm
My traditional Mothers Day dishtowel from my daughterwholivesnearme arrived early for me this year. She always finds such fun ones...
Righto, Gotto Go and be Badass.......
