What we have been doing

Hi Everyone,

On Easter Sunday when we were having a virtual Easter lunch with the family, my daughter said "What's happened to the blog Mum?" She and my granddaughter love checking it out each week.
So here it is!

Many of us are keeping in touch through WhatsApp which Alison suggested. Alison can set you up if you would like to join. It has been a great way for us to keep in touch and show off our sewing and keeping up with our various activities.
I am enjoying the quieter period as I use the extra time to work on my unfinished projects and to start  new ones.

Early on, Jenny suggested a challenge making the Jacobs ladder block in both 6" and 12" sizes. Colours to use are dark blue, light blue and white. The blocks will be sewn together for Community quilts when we finally get to meet again. There is an example below.

The next challenge is for wonky star blocks - unfinished size 6.5". Bright colours with lots of contrast.
The centre square is 2.5" with 8 background 2.5" squares, plus 8 x 2" squares for the star points. I will post a photo next week.

Also Ros has made a huge number of little knitted teddies which I will save for next week as well.

QuiltNSW has postponed their annual show until 29 October to 1 November at Darling Harbour.
It will be interesting to see if it will go ahead. The future is still very uncertain for us all.

Show and Tell - Some of our posts in WhatsApp:

Until next week .........
