So as there is no modern quilt guild anywhere me, I've started my own, the Moravian modern quilt guild!. But it does have two members not one. My sister in law, Bridget and I. She's staying with us for the weekend (without her husband who couldn't get away) and we're sewing! She has a friend who is having a baby in September, and asked if I'd make a quilt. Well, as she's here, rather than me make it, I'm teaching Bridget how to do it! Fortunately she is an experienced sewer, just never made a quilt before, so all it took was a bit of basic cutting, sewing a 1/4 inch seam and she was away!
|Careful measuring and cutting!|
|Concentrating on the 1/4 inch seam|
|Chain piecing (and yes, that is my supernova quilt in the background)|
|Squaring up the blocks - I wish some-one had told me I could do this when I first started!|
|End of the first day!|
We've done a bit more today, and now we're off shopping.
Fat Quarterly retreat it ain't, but we're having fun!!
