Clever Friends

Good morning. I am a little late sharing my sewing day with friends last week. I warn you there are a few piccies. We had some beautiful show and what does any self respecting blogger do.....snap away.
Our hostess was Theresa and we began with a delicious morning tea and homemade scones....yummo!
And then the lovelies! Sarah's half hexagon quilt.
Theresa made one as well.....I took a shot of the back as Theresa's is not quilted yet...I guess you could make them 2 tone if you wanted.

Another of Sarah's using an Anni Downs panel and lovely piecing.

I just love Theresa's Pieces of Time quilt .

Robyn can't remember the name of this pattern but calls it the "Basket" quilt. Apparently a very old ufo....its so pretty!

Theresa's Cotton reel quilt is now a flimsy...
She was also proudly showing off her lovely bag just received in a Christmas in July swap.....we were tempted to spirit it away!
And lastly but definitely not least....Jan's embroidery because she was feeling left out lol!
We did get down to some stitching after much oohhing and aahhhing.
I worked on my Brinton Hall Stars and have only the centre circles to sew on.
When I got home I really wanted to see what my chosen in between the hexies fabric looked like....this is my choice.....gorgeous favourite fabric bought back as a gift from the US by my dear friend Ann.
I have used it in one of the big centre medallions. I think I am happy with it in the border.
So that's your quilty start to Sunday. Nothing nicer than admiring friends quilts and sharing some laughter and a cuppa.
"Dear friends are there for you in sunshine and shadow. If you have known such a friend you are truly blessed " Miss you Gaye xx
