Surprise! Surprise!

Look who came to the meeting on last Thursday! After long winter months staying at home Regina, finally got out of the house and visited us. She was blossoming like plum trees. This is the time where you can see tiny white flowers in plum trees. Thank you Ursula for bringing her. Ann, Regina and Ursula are sitting in front of my kimono quilt. Sorry, have to mention my quilt.

Ursula was talking and picking threads from her finished wall hanging. She was very happy that this project was so quick and easy. Tah tah and finished!

I worked with Ann on her spiral quilt. We managed to put together some corners of the quilt. I was a little bit to put off to continue working with my spiral quilt because of complications. Never mind, one day I will have inspiration to continue until then the quilt has to wait.

Making wall hanging

Ursula and I started making patchwork wall hangings using an applique method. It is a quite time consuming process: coping patterns, cutting, ironing and finally start sewing. After two hours work we had this result. Ursula started with this two cute bag appliques. Today on Facebook she already put almost finished wall hanging.

I made a wall hanging with three bags using my Japanese fabrics. Compared to Ursula I have not touched it since last Thursday.

Susan attached sashing to her wall hanging and it is ready to be sandwiched and quilted.

At the beginning of the morning Ann was struggling with her spiral quilt edges but finally she was on the truck and happy with the result.

Thursday, 3 February

Ursula was back from Germany with her baby quilt. These little animals all appliqued and Ursula used asew as you quilt method. Plenty of animal names to learn for babies.

This is the quilt's back. You can clearly see all animals from the back.

These beautiful bags made of Ann's book by Susan. Lovely fabrics and she used her decorative stitches around bags. I really would like to make this one.

In the afternoon Anabela came to show us what she learnt from Houston quilt show. Sashiko is my favourite stitches. This made in a special sashiko machine, and it has only one ending. Lovely, I will be very happy is Anabela teaches me sashiko. I know all techinques because I read some books on sashiko but still happy to be taught by someone.

This is another method of sew as you quilt or quilt as you sew. Looks complicated but Anabela said it is so easy.

Batik, these beauties arrived last week at Anabela's shop.

I have been making more and more bags. This time a clutch. I love this fabric, bought from patch-mania. Next time if I use this fabric I will have just black strap.
