For some time now, I’ve joined a few other like minded friends on the second Wednesday of each month to sew.  This month, thanks to episodes of Downton Abby, Packed to the Rafters and Castle I actually have two completed quilts to share.  The picture  below is a quilt Melanie put together a few years back, always intending to hand quilt.  Yada Yada, she passed it on to me when she had to move and finally acknowledged she just didn’t have time to finish it.  My friend Evol quilted it and I completed the binding during the aforementioned programmes and now it’s destined as gift, as all quilts from this group to someone in the community.

Here’s another picture to show off the quilting.

This next quilt we put together a few months back.  Evol quilted and Daphne completed the binding (probably during the aforementioned programmes as well).  I’ve blogged about it before… and it is lovely to see them completed before they are passed on.

IMG_2462 Sewing today was at my friend Peggy’s beautiful home and I couldn’t resist snapping a quick shot from her front door, just to share.  Peggy’s home is full of colour and the many collections – including quilts she’s put together over the years, it really is a feast for the eyes!  I look at the picture and just want to go in and explore!
