Busy (sewing) weekend

I confess I do often get a lot of sewing done over a weekend - most weekends one day at least is at one of my Sewing Groups.  This weekend - on Saturday (my non-group day)- after some "retail therapy" shopping and the dreaded groceries - I had to hide in my Sewing Space as DH had a cousin to visit - to watch the AFL...apparently Geelong lost - must have been bad refereeing again.....

So I worked on Ruth's quilt - I had joined the long rows (columns if you are thinking of Excel)...but had to remove a few pieces and substitute other fabrics and then I sewed 4 of these columns together...doesn't sound like a lot but there was some extra cutting involved...and it is further progressed than before . . . .

(Not a great shot)

Saturday night I spent some time cutting the brown borders and strips for the 4 patches for the baby quilt, and Sunday - at our group meeting, I made the 4 patches and joined the blocks into the top bottom and two sides.

Tonight - after dinner (and watching MKR) I was able to add the brown border and the 4 rows to the top bottom and sides.   I think I will add another brown border and that will be it.

I best go to work tomorrow to have a rest!

I hope you had a fun weekend doing what you like to do.
