Quilty friend Gail and I got together last night for some quilting. It was just the three of us - me, Gail, and THE CAT!
I finished up the second step of the Bonnie Hunter Christmas Lights mytery. We put the blocks up on the design wall to see if we could reckon how the final assembly would look. Here's what we came up with; I wonder if we got it even close??
Gibson was eager to be helpful to both of us. Here, he's holding the fabric steady for Gail, while she cuts out the pieces for a baby quilt. Gail very nearly saved me the cost of neutering Gibson, he was just so enthusiastic about helping her!
Next, I worked on my Sunbonnet Sue blocks.
This is as far as I had gotten last night - - but it's much closer to completion this morning.
I stumbled upon an interesting find at the Goodwill yesterday. There has recently been a lengthy discussion about quilting fiction on the Stashbuster group. (I've assembled quite a reading list, thanks to that discussion!) This, however was not one of the books mentioned:
The author of this book is a member of the London Friendship Quilters Guild --I was a member in'07-'08--and I was aware that Barb Attard was a writer, but I had no idea that she had written quilting fiction! I was surprised and pleased to find a copy of "Flying Geese" on the shelf at Goodwill for 99¢.
