Sew-in held on 23-25 May

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:
