We sewed!

Usually when Scrappy and I get together for the day, we seem to do a lot of talking and quite a bit of eating (all healthy foods, of course) but precious little sewing.  Well today was different. Within an hour of me arriving at hers, we had both made a block for a charity quilt that Simply Solids are organising (to make quilts for the children of the MP Jo Cox who was murdered a few days ago).
Then Scrappy test drove my instructions for a block for Yorkshire Modern Quilt Group's BOM. No picture of that yet, but I'm glad she tested it cos I had managed to make a real pigs-ear of some of the cutting instructions.

As if that wasn't enough, she went on to try out a block for her next charity quilt and we discussed her idea for a block for the BOM too.

Don't worry though, despite all our hard work, we still managed to eat and chat and generally have a lovely day.


  1. Nothing is better than eating and sewing with friends!

  2. Chatting, eating are important parts of quilting with friends.

  3. sounds a fun time, hope to make some wonky blocks today as I had no white but Lisa says we can use white on white so no excuse

  4. Sounds like a great day and do hope we see the outcomes of all these ideas and projects. Take care.

  5. Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

  6. Nothing better that sewing together. So glad you had fun.
