And now from Newcastle!
You will be pleased to know that the ladies got two quilt tops together from all the star blocks that have been sent in. What some of the BOM star blocks I had and all the ones that were sent in for the Blue Sport and Food quilt there were enough to make two quilts.
So Rita worked on one - I made an executive decision and decided just to make it food themed as there were too many good food themed blocks - they just had to all be included. I think it turned out so well and will look even better when we get some royal blue or red binding on it.
Laurel worked on the other half of my executive decision and that was a cool sports themed quilt - so many cool blocks in this one too. I have several fellows who have asked for Sports themed quilts so they should be pretty happy with this one.
I would show you photos of what I did but the first part of the day was spent sewing pieces of fabric together to make pieces long enough for backings - not exactly exciting fodder for a camera - and then I worked on three laundry bags but if i show you any of those before the recipient has received them they would be a dead give away.
That is it for today. It is just after 4pm and I need to head to the Post Office and check the mail and then I need to come home and answer all the emails that have piled up during the day.
Till next time..................keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
