Meeting with the Sew Wot Ladies

It was so nice to meet up with the Sew Wot ladies on Tuesday, after being away on holiday for several weeks.  There were two more finished quilts that our group was doing from the Moda Sampler Blocks recently offered on the internet.  Carol and Heather B brought along their finished quilts – it’s always so interesting to see just how different quilts can be using the same blocks.

Mary had been very prolific – she brought along a Christmas Tree Skirt made to her daughter’s specifications, just as she wanted it.  And after our Sew Wot friend Pam passed away, Mary took home this lovely Iris wall-hanging kit, and stitched it in Pam’s honour.

There was a bit of knitting going on as well, both blankets, as it turned out.  Helen was stitching her grey and white squares together, and Carol was knitting herself a blanket in such pretty shades of extra thick wool.  Both blankets will be lovely and cozy when they are completed.

Moira was embroidering her lovely fox design, and Heather E was appliqueing tiny hexies and dresden plates onto background squares.  As for me, even though I got my hand stitching out, I didn’t take a single stitch!  Too much talking going on, and I really needed to catch up on all the news, didn’t I?

Lovely quilts with the same blocks, I like sashing, it shows off each block so well.And what a tribute, the finished Iris, truly beautiful.
