Firstly I had to rest yesterday to get over my wonderful weekend.
Our patchwork group had a little weekend retreat with some neighbouring girls, with the intention of learning to strip and curve. Here is my first set of strata with the second in progress. My pillow came in handy as an extra table.
Some of us also managed to throw in a little dyeing on the Saturday. There is my 24 colour wheel on the left. Yesterday I rinsed and washed and today is ironing day.
Day one I managed to dye and get all my strips stitched together ... day two I carefully began sewing some curves.
Seven blocks in all ... I have to admit I was beginning to slacken off by the afternoon.
9 more blocks and I shall have my very own strips and curves quilt top.
Thankyou Ruth and girls for a lovely weekend of sewing and chatting. Hope to see how you are all coming along at next patchwork day.
