Yesterday was the first day I was able to get to the sewing machine in a while. I cleaned the sewing room up as I usually have to before I start. Don't know why .....its always a mess when I finish....LOL.
My good friend Gail arrived and we had a lovely day of sewing.  Always better to sew with a friend....

I am on a mission to finish things lately but I am busting to start a new project....so we will see how long it lasts.


First we started with cake -

I finished my Dresden plate quilt I started with Kerry Swain at "Cottage on the Hill"  last year.

Gail was working on her challenge ...Shhh..........

Our quilt group  has a challenge at the moment......we all had to wrap 4 fat quarters and put them in a basket then we had to pick one out and create something with them...we could use any embellishment and one metre of extra fabric.....  I have to hurry up and start mine.

A machine mat with matching thread catcher......only the bind to be stitched now.






The thread catcher will be added to the tile and hang over the edge of the table.
I am using my special edition Singer to sew bindings 

Twin quilts made at Kerry Swains at "Cottage on the Hill" Nundle. 

Just binding to be done ...tonight's job

Love your Dresden in the blues, very striking. Enjoy sewing your bindings tonight, I think it's an exciting part of the process. Great fabric choices on them.
