Sewing with Friends

This Wednesday was the first day since before Christmas that I have sewn with friends.  I belong to two groups but I really love THIS group.  There are four of us and we met at our 'Local' when we signed up to do a Millamac quilting class. We have since done several Millamac projects together.

We meet once a month at Marilyn's house as she has the best space and lots of lovely light. We get there around 9.30, everyone brings something to share for lunch and we leave sometime in the early afternoon.

Lots of sewing and chatting.....love it!

the detail at the bottom of the hem.  looks better here than it does in real life!

I finished Block 3 of Betsy's Closet and did some stitching on Block 3 of Bric-a-Brac.......very productive indeed. even if I do say so myself.

I just have to show you Zita's quilt that she has been working on since before I met her 2 years ago. It is so stunning, I am definitely adding this to my to-do list even though she constantly rue's the day she started this one.

Each hexi is 1inch ..... oooh, I know.....tiny, right? Could be a great way to use up bits and pieces in your scrap basket

This is the border........i am in love with this quilt.   I am totally, totally convinced that I have to make one too.
