Today was our February quilting day, and Patty got the lucky draw, so she got to choose which block we would make today. We did not make all these blocks today, as Patty had already had some made up, but these are the blocks that she chose and we all sewed. The block is called Midnight Glow, and the tutorial can be found at Freemotion By The River.
I love the colors Patty chose. She is going to change the pattern a bit though, and put sashing in-between the blocks. I think it will look very pretty! I just love that deep dark brown fabric!
Patty chose batiks for her FQ fabric choice, so here are the beautiful fabrics that we got to indulge in today.
I didn’t sew quilt blocks today. Instead, I made a couple more thread catcher/pincushion bags. This one is for my friend Judy.
This one is for my friend Margaret J. I also made her a litter bag for her car. I sewed a little button below the tab and snapped a button cover over it for ‘bling’. If you would like to see how to make the litter bags, click here. The thread catchers are constructed much the same, although I don’t have a pattern written up for them. I just ‘wing it’.
Last weekend, I made a couple bags for my friend Ronelle’s two daughters who are learning to sew.
My friend Renea made herself a new bag today too.
It was another wonderful, laughter filled day spent with cherished friends. I feel so blessed to have these ladies in my life. I just wish we could get together more than once a month.
