Follow the quilts

Is what I did yesterday when getting off the bus and  going to the quilt exhibition held by Eastwood Patchwork Quilters.



Inside is a feast of quilts.




After spending a couple of hours being inspired I came home and finished off the last of those 4 patch blocks which I am now happy to say have been placed in the "jigsaw" puzzle and all sewn together into sections.  The gap that can be seen between the middle section and the top and bottom will have a sashing of the darker pink between them.


Before setting up the machine with the walking foot to make a start on  quilting  the middle section I finished off the bands on two warm tops for Miss M.



I have put a pocket on the front of each of them so she can slip her hands inside on a cold day.

Thirty others have signed up for FNwF over at Gone Stichin' so head on over to see what the others got up to last night.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all
