I’ve been sewing a bit since my last post and last night was 4 til 10, or in my case 6.30 til 10.  Normally I only take hand-sewing when I go out, however I took my sewing machine along and pieced one point completely and sewed the strips for another.  Now that’s not really much of an accomplishment as piecing the stripes only takes a leisurely 15 minutes and another 10 to sew the strips together.

One of the lovely things about this group is we all jump in with suggestions when someone brings along a new project.  Rachel was in fine form and giving me heaps, in fact nearly all the girls were.  Cheeky beggars!  So I made Rachel, with Ellie’s help chose the placement of fabrics for the next point.  That point is nearly finished so that will be half the star done.

I’m teenager free this weekend so after I do a little housework its off to the sewing room and just maybe I’ll get the rest of those points finished.   As I didn’t have a camera with me Rachel took a photo with her phone so here’s a progress photo.

I’m intending this to be a very simple quilt but if you have any suggestions as to what to do with the setting squares and triangles I’d love to hear them.
