Machines Everywhere and Scrap Quilts Galore

There's a storm coming so I must turn off.  Sorry but I'll come back later to finish the story.

OK back again. Still a few rumblings in the distance ... haven't measured the rain yet ... it's still coming and going and it's also very cold now.

Wednesday was patchwork day for the Mt. Perry gals and everyone brought their sewing machines ... that is everyone except Narelle. She had to pop out for a bit so only brought along her hexies to sew.

Ruth was busy painting with thread while Fay worked on her scrappy quilt and took some time out to do a bit of candlewicking. Kerry was able to stay the whole day so she got cracking on a UFO scrap quilt. Lyn continued to work on her Fairies quilt and Di was busy piecing her lovely purples quilt. Margaret popped in for a quick hello and a cuppa and Patty also popped in for a visit.

With scrap quilts quickly becoming a hot topic amongst the group I'd like to share some photos of some beautiful scrap quiltsI found in blogland. These have been made by Julia over at Julia's Place. Click HERE to take you to Julia's blog where you will find many more gorgeous quilts.

This is a Tumbler quilt that I was attempting to explain on Wednesday.

Braid quilt like Kerry was working on.

This is Julia's latest quilt in progress. Just another way you could use up your bigger pieces of scraps.

Make sure you head over to Julia's Place where you'll find lots and lots of eye candy :)
