Just Four Today

A sunny breezy day in Surrey and no sign as yet of an ash cloud!

There would only be four of us today as Alison is on holiday in Spain.  Chris was the first to arrive followed very quickly by Caroline and Amanda.

With our first cup of tea we had Lemon Drizzle cake by M & S, no time for baking this week.

Caroline had brought with her eight fat eighths which she is hoping to make into a baby quilt for a friend.

Amanda had brought four Lone Star blocks she had completed from the workshop at the beginning of the month and was sewing more hexagons to add to the growing collection.

Chris was also sewing hexagons but into rosettes.

I had asked Chris if I could have a look at a ruler she had called 'Fit To Be Geese' by Open Gate Quilts, there has been a lot of talk on various blogs about this and I was interested to see how it worked.

Caroline had an early lunch as she was leaving to teach this afternoon.

Lunch consisted of Quiche Lorraine and Salmon and Watercress Quiche with baby new potatoes and salad, followed by a Bonne Maman chocolate mousse.

After lunch Chris got our her Fuchsia fabric that had to be fussy cut into borders.  After a refresh of the video instructions from Animas Quilts this was easily done.

Since June 2010 Alison, Chris and I have been doing a block of the month from Fat Quarter Quilters a 'Designer Mystery Block of the Month' this was on a Christmas theme using the fabric Collection 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain.  These are my blocks.
