Sewing Day

A wonderful day today with two friendly quilt buddies. Couple of glasses of wine, breadrolls and smoked chicken in the sunshine and Andre Rieus on the dvd! And no interruptions!
My floral scrappy quilt is three borders away from finished so hopefully by tomorrow night I will post a photo of it completed. Once this is finished I can start on my garden quilt. I've finally figured out a plan after finding photos of my late Dad's garden years ago. And now I can't wait.. but I had to get this one off the design wall first. PROGRESS...It's taken me nearly two years to finish this one and it will go on my table when I've quilted it.. Yes this will be my debut at freemotion quilting.. well the quilt cost me nothing. It's all charm squares from a swap so if I make a mistake or two who cares!

Hi Karen,

Your quilt is looking really great.
I love all the colours and the little pansies, such sweet flowers.

glad that you had some fun yesterday with your quilting buddies and I hope that the rest of the weekend is lovely for you.

One can get very used to these three day weekends!

Nice. What are you going to do with all those quilts you make? My aunt has made DOZENS and they sit in the wardrobe.... just sitting there forever I reckon! What's the point?
