Round Robin with borders

Here is the block with its borders attached. It does change the look of it.
I hope the person who started the block likes it.
I have started a new quilt. It has 2 large applique blocks
which I hope will be large enough for a single bed cover.
I will be adding photos of my progress along the way.
Big day tomorrow.
Will let you what what it is!!
Happy sewing

Round Robin

On the second Staurday in March, I joined a new group of quilters out of town (about half an hour).

They had already started a round robin block.

I was able to catch up and below is the block I received to add more rows to.

Next blog will have a update, hopefully.

Pictures and update

Here are some pictures of the quilts and tops I am currently working on.
I had a busy day today, no sewing just a visit to the attorneys and the bank.
I will be starting on a new top tonight.
I will have some pictures tomorrow

Again Time Flies!!

Almost 2 months since my last blog. Shame on me!
Life has been hectically busy and I have been sewing my little(!)but off.
2 Quilts for CANSA, a quilt for a new baby, a Row by Row Christmas Quilt Courtesy of Sindy.
Three tops quilted for a customer and one on the frame for me.
Also much has happened on my living life as apposed to my quilting life.
New House purchased on the coast.
This one has lots of work to do but I am looking forward to that and who knows what that life will bring.
I hope as much happiness as my quilting.
I also did something yesterday which I always said was silly and impossible:
Can you believe that?
I have been sewing for more years than I can remember (Will be 50 soon) and now this happens.
Could have been a lot worse I suppose.
The needle broke and I had a piece stuck in the tip of my finger with the thread still attached. Well I yanked it out, let it bleed a bit ,
covered the throbbing finger with a plaster and carried on sewing.
Until next time
(Which I hope is not in 2 months!)
Happy sewing,
