Sunday Sewing

I think the best decision I made this year was to join my local modern quilt guild - the Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild. I have heaps of fun at the sewing Sundays and meetings. I think the idea of talking fabric and techniques are lost on most of my friends so finding a group of like minded people is so exciting. 
We had a sewing Sunday today and I worked on a few different things. First up was my Quilt Con Charity blocks. Not the greatest picture but here they are. The top block is my own design, which it drew up in the iPad app Quiltography. The bottom block is a bit of improv left over from the top block.

We are also doing a Teeny Weeny Swap with the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild and the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. The idea is that the piecing is teeny weeny. For my partner I have made a mini Dilly bag with some churn dashes. I originally made 6" blocks but then decided I could go even more teeny.   So the 2nd lot I did were 3". And as I didn't want to waste the 6" they went on the base and back.

Now onto the winner of the Gypsy Wife QAL. It must be getting to the busy part of the year as there were only 2 entrants. 

Drumroll please .... Congratulations Rachel at  Farm Gal Designs

  1. Fabulous use of your mini churn dashes. I think you're right, its great to have a place you can go and get together and talk all things quilting. Keeps you sane, inspired and your non-quilty friends happy ;)
