Wednesday Club

Well, the snow had cleared enough for most of use to get to Wednesday club, which is as you know held  at Quilters Haven. It was so nice seeing each other again, every one was getting a little stir crazy at home. Me, I was so pleased to get my backing and wadding/ batting for my log cabin quilt, and yesterday spent my time basting it all together ready for quilting, and last night started on the quilting all snuggled up by the fire. "Heaven"

Basted and ready for quilting 

All the girls were working on different things, Sandra on the second of her twin grandson's quilts. They are lovely and all hand appliquéd. She is a fairly new to quilting but has lots of lovely ideas.

The first one finished 
Second one nearly finished
Maggie was well ahead of herself, making a table runner as a present for a friend for next Christmas!
Way to go Maggie.

Hand quilting.
Jean had finished her star block for the Charity quilt that we are making from our scraps of the friendship quilts we all made last year. I loved the way she had put the centre of the star together, with tiny squares of scrap fabric. 

Alison was working on her Button Club BOM by +lynnett anderson . that several of us have done, hers is so delicate and pretty. Mine is hanging in my sewing room, it took nine months to make but it was worth it. I love it...

Alison's BOM.

I took loads more photos at Wednesday club, but the rest were not so good, so will have to take some at the Bee next week. At Wednesday Club I was working on a UFO and when I was folding it up, Jenny stated it was "the epitome of sludge." Am I cross about that? No not at all, both Jenny and I love sludge colours LOL..

Stay safe and keep sewing........Doti
ps. Keep warm too...
