What do I call today?

A wonderful sunny day started off with some show & tell.
This Amish quilt I made at a class with Sue in Canterbury on an Amish Day.  We had whoopee pies & other Amish food, to go with the sewing, along with a bit of history.
I have cut the borders so hope to have a completed top to show you all soon!

 Always a favourite with children, I am making this for my cousin's baby, Thomas Edward Bertie for his christening.
The baby quilt never quite got finished so I am determined to do this one properly!!
I thought it appropriate to choose Thomas, but he is being known as Bertie so will have to add some Bertie the Bus fabric!!

 Caroline is using her not so new machine to practice "stippling" before attacking her quilt from the previous few weeks!
Getting used to a different machine, the stitching is getting smaller!

Janet is sewing these Christmas pictures, a strip by Moda, from Needle & thread in Horsell, to make up into Christmas bunting.  they will be displayed in the shop later in the year.  This is what I call being very organised!

 Alison is proudly showing off some of her finished Block of the Month blocks from Country Inn by Barb Adams & Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs.

The two blocks on the left are my BOTM blocks from the same book, using fabric from Patchwork Cabin in Bookham.  Alison is using her own fabric selection.

This is a comparison of the two identical blocks in the different colour combinations.

Another successful day of eating, drinking & quilting - it should be "Tea & Cake on Tuesdays!!"


  1. Que bonitos son los quilts amish, nos gustan muchisimo. La colcha para tu sobrino es preciosa.
    Tus bloques de BOTM son preciosos y las telas de Patchwork Cabin en Bookham son estupendas. Nos han gustado mucho las fotos de Navidad. Felicidades por todos esos trabajos.
