|Judy's place was transformed into a professional looking classroom|
So I cut all the strips and pinned them all up. Despite Lyn querying how many I needed I went ahead and prepared 48 - double the amount I needed! Grrrr.... I was thinking this block was cursed. Anyway got on with it and spent the rest of the day and into the night machine piecing the hst's and the centre star. The pink corner stars had been made months ago.
The centre pieces were quite small and I didn't know if I would be able to piece them on the machine but I managed it.
This block has now gone from being loathed to loved :)
Lyn spent the day (and into the night) squaring up the blocks and sewing them altogether for her son's stunning large quilt.

I just love the fabrics, many of them my favourite Japanese taupes.
Doesn't the yellow just pop beautifully?
Sophie had bought along a quilt that she had made but no longer liked. Originally it was bright batiks on white backgrounds, she was so unhappy with it that she didn't even want me to take a photo so unfortunately I can't do the before and after story. Here is the after photo, after it was dyed to tone down the brights and give it a more antique look.
Isn't it just beautiful!!
Day 2 coming up next.
