Last Friday afternoon and over the weekend a group of Canberra Quilters gathered for another “Sew-in”. We set up to have a table each and worked on our various projects over the weekend – leaving everything in place overnight and coming back fresh in the morning.
The image in the banner of this post is the border of a William Morris quilt that Jill was working on. She was using machine buttonhole stitch to applique the design in place. The next Sew-in is at the end of July ( 25-27). There are still a couple of places available.
Here are some images of the weekend:
Rosemary worked on exploring techniques

June added the borders to her William Morris quilt
Jenny finished the last block in her quilt – she uses Post-it notes to track the names of the blocks
Jenny moved on to the pieced sashing – which creates a secondary pattern
Beres cut out squares from men’s shirts ready to piece into a quilt
Global Warming by Liz Rose- made in 1993.
