Well due to the extreme wet weather my sons mountain bike race was cancelled so we had a free weekend. A quick SMS to Lynne and without a moments hesitation an extra quilting day was arranged for Sunday.
It was a lovely surprise when I arrived at her house to find her wonderful hubby had built us a new cutting table just perfect for two cutting boards with a light directly overhead (which I had requested) just below the TV so we could watch our instruction videos while cutting :-)
Our main project for the day was our Block 4 wishes quilt. Kimberly from the Fat Quarter Shop demonstrated this one with half square triangle paper and during the week I had found a computer program to print your own half square triangle paper in sizes and 1 to 7 inches so we were able to print our own 3 1/2" half square triangle paper. This made an enormous different to the making of this block. Using the paper makes the half square triangles so much more accurate. This one was finished with very little fuss although Lynne made a small mistake in the last join but she decided that because the joints were perfect and it really made no difference to the finished quilt she would leave it as is and put her own stamp on the quilt.
Bunnyies all done and it was time to continue with our Quilt as you Go Split peronality quilt. So many quilts on the go at once !!!.
These are great to make and are coming together very well although we still have quite a way to go
Of course there was a happy hour and dinner with the hubbies. We had another great quilting especially good because it was an extra :-)
