Queensland sewing

Tried to think of a good name for this post but am too tired to come up with anything funnier.  We (four of my quilt group buddies and I) worked really hard today!  We got together to answer a call from Corrie to make some blocks, or quilts to send to Queensland.  Lots of sewing, pinning, ironing, trimming and laughing later these are the result -
 This one is going to have some more red added to each side and then red binding and backing.  I should have taken a close up as this does not show the fabrics off to advantage.
We actually did two of these.  Both will have green borders and then a band of strips top and bottom to make them longer and and finally red binding and blue backing.  These are really busy quilts but as a kid I would have loved one of these as there are so many novelty fabrics to look - always something new to see.

Tomorrow is our normal meeting so we hope to get these three quilts completed as much as possible.  If we can get them layered from quilting that will be great!  We are having another Queensland Quilting Bee next Tuesday as well so maybe we will get another couple of quilt done then too.

Till next time
Happy stitching!



  1. I love the bright quilt. Good luck with getting lots of sewing done at your meeting.

  2. I'd love to join a quilting bee they sound such fun. Love your quilts, mine is still in the.... shhh.... unfinished pile!

  3. That is such a nice thing you ladies are doing. Wish I was a part of your fun sewing bee. I love the scrappy quilts you guys are making
