Stitching in the chair

So tonight's effort at stitching was finish off one hexagon block and nearly finish another. I hurt my back a few days ago, so sitting in one spot for too long gets a bit painful. But it is getting better 😃. 

Good night everyone

More Students

Hi everyone

I  have been very slack again with blogging and showing you another group of ladies work who have come to my Bake @ 60degrees class at The Patchwork Angel.

This group of smart ladies accomplished all the blocks in class.  Robyn has made a whole quilt "Tiffany Diamonds" already and is dropping it to me tomorrow to be quilted.  It should be ready for our next class, then Robyn can show the girls.  We all love show and tell...

Here are their samples from class

Cat used some pretty Tilda fabrics

Maxine with William Morris Greens

Sue has the lovely William Morris fabrics also

This yellow and blue is Robyn's, this is the block for Tiffany Diamonds quilt

Pam used pinks to make the Blueberry icecream blocks

Anne come all the way from Mt Isa, and felt the cold, next class will be warmer.

Look forward to seeing the girls again shortly for the second part of the class

Stitching in the chair

So far tonight I have sewn on 6 scout badges. 

Then some more pieces together on the Compass block. Not finished yet, maybe one more night and it will be all done. I have been distracted by watching Hell on Wheels, I do like Mr Bohannan. Haven't seen any quilts but am still looking, for research you know.

Stitching in the chair

This was supposed to post last night but not sure what happened.   So I was not as productive as it looks for one night

Tonight I got this block pieced. It is one of many I have still to do. 

One at a time

Stitching in the chair

Tonight's stitching is not quite stitching. I have traced and cut all these pieces ready to hand stitch together.

To this layout. 

My light source is from my daylight lamp off to the side. I will try for better photos next time. 

Might get a seam or two done still tonight.
