Tuesday night was guild night at Riverwalk Quilters. Cathy Geier was our guest speaker talking about her watercolor quilts.
Then we had show and tell. There wasn’t a lot this month. Valli Schiller had made a nice quilt for her college bound son.
It was really graphic and very masculine. I like the skewed blocks. I hope he looks after it away at school.
Today we had our bee meeting at Ute’s. We made a start on the quilt we had decided to make using the hand dyes from Ann’s stash. We are using a pattern from one of her Fons and Porter magazines. When it is finished we are going to give it to the Little Friend’s Auction in Ann’s memory.
By the time I got to Ute’s the pressing and cutting of fabric strips was well under way.
So I got to sit at Ute’s nifty Janome machine and sew.
That is the first picture of me I have posted! It was nice being able to pass the strip sets over to be pressed and sub cut.
The cat was enjoying itself too.
But I had a lunch appointment so I left the real workers to keep going.
I have no idea how much they all got done but the plan is that we will only work on it when we are meeting together as a bee, rather than people taking things home to do on their own. Pat chose a great pattern for the fabrics. I am looking forward to being able to report on our progress. Ann had a big shopping bag full of hand dyes she had bought on her travels along with some yardage she had dyed herself in workshops so it will keep us busy for a while.
Then after lunch I went to the store and picked up the pattern for the kid’s camp I have been waiting for. So now I have a new project to keep me occupied. I am hoping to have it finished by Saturday morning. I made a good start tonight so we will have to wait and see. I will of course take a picture when I am done.
