Connie and Rosy came over, brought their handwork or their featherweight and we talked the day away.
I'd like to say this is a picture of Connie advising Rosy on the best way to take a quilting stitch when in fact we were all trying to figure out how to send a digital picture on Rosy's cell phone! I teased them about Sewing Bees in the past being a good place for women to share recipes and childcare advice, *now* look at us!
Connie's mini baskets
I spent most of the time trimming the HST's for the border on my Star Struck quilt. They're going to finish at 1-3/8" (!) and I decided that was just too small to use in a Sawtooth. And while I really like blue, this border audition said too much blue.
So at this point I plan on making a single row of pyramids, with the light or medium blue on the left so it looks like they're lit from the west. The following border will be a 30's yellow print, then bind with blue. It's amazing how different the actual layouts looked compared to the EQ drafts. EQ helps visualize ideas, but there's nothing like the real thing.
