Quilt Group

Last night was the first Thursday night of the month quilt group – the one that usually has a lot of quilts for show and tell and a lot of chatter going on!  I got a little work done on my Patchwork of the Crosses block and showed two people how to use Inklingo and make Y seams easily! Now will they get into it – I don’t know but they appreciated the work that goes into hand piecing.  And of course like usual I don’t remember what quilt belongs to whom.

I did bring my Joseph’s Coat quilt to show and what I have finished on the Patchwork of the Crosses so far – didn’t bother to take more photo’s of them as you all have seen them here.

I did manage to get a little work done on the POTC block in the afternoon while visiting with Melanie yesterday – she was doing a little crafting also so that worked out well.  I should be able to get some done on that block today as well and I’m going to try to find some quilting time today also.

Isn’t it fun to get together with our quilt groups now that we are starting a new year? I’ve been so happy to get back on task now that the holidays are over.

Wondering if you can do a tutorial on Y seams? I would like to see the technique you use.

A bunch of talented ladies making lovely quilts. Pink is not really ‘me’, but the one on the first and second photo is so pretty with its stitcheries.
