It was another fortnightly Sew Wot Tuesday today, and we met in Carol’s home. During Show and Tell I got to show off my recently completed Selvedge Bag. Then Helen showed some more baby knitting, for a new family arrival, a pretty pink cardigan, and two little hats.

Next up was Helen’s king sized quilt, made from the design of 100 Blocks, by Tula Pink. And yes, there is 100 blocks there, each one different. This quilt has just come back from being commercially quilted, by Deborah, of Country Life Quilting.

Our hostess Carol had been busy knitting too, and had finished some more baby knitting for charity.

Last time the Sew Wots met up, Mary had showed us a couple of easy quilt patterns. Carol has recently finished a baby sized version of “Twist and Shout”. This is a good design to use up strips.

While we wee flicking through a pile of older quilting magazines to see if there was any that wanted to come home with us, Carol was organizing our morning tea. The pot of White Tea was a hit with the tea drinkers, not something I had come across before.
Morning Tea for the ladies
Mary arrived a little later with two of her grand-daughters, it’s school holiday time over here. While the girls had there own little morning tea together, Mary showed us her beautiful Bargello Christmas Quilt, another one expertly quilted by Country Life Quilting. Mary told us she had pieced this quilt top way back in 2006 on her mother’s treadle sewing machine. So she is pleased that it is finally completed – but good things take time, don’t they!

I always enjoy our Sew Wot mornings together. It’s always good to meet up with the ladies – especially as I have to miss the next two get-togethers due to other appointments.
