Sit and Sew

 I organised a Sit and Sew session at a local hall ...when moving into a community I think it's important to meet new people and rekindle old friendships.  We had a lovely mix of local ladies and quilters that I knew...plus some I didn't know!
 Some of the ladies knew each other...others didn't, but it was noisy...from all the chatting!
There was hand piecing .....
...machine piecing....
....machine applique....
binding stitched on and 
 pin cushions made!
Everyone agreed it was a good day, so we are going to do it all again next month! 
Happy quilting, Sue.

The lovely Ann from Periwinkle Patchwork gave me this book back in May.  I have read it several times and changed my mind about which quilt...
