Members of the group put together two blocks each. It's a Lori Smith pattern which she gave us permission to copy and reproduce. It's called Honouring our Quilting Heritage.
Sue bought donuts to help us through the day and I'm thankful that my sewing machine is in it's cabinet upstairs as I had to keep running up and down sewing my pieces together therefore justifying eating two of them. She had probably run about three miles that morning to justify her's. She's younger than me and looks better in lycra than I do!
It's going together nicely with a bit of easing here and there.
Setting triangles and border have yet to be decided on but we wanted to get the basics of it together before the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham next week so we can look for suitable fabric.
This will be our raffle quilt for our 2014 exhibition which I know is a long way off but as we all know time flys.
