A day for sewing...

Last Tuesday saw four friends get together to explore the possibilities made using x-blocks.


We met at Kayly's house and set about cutting our strips into blocks. ( sorry about the sideways shot).


Here's the plan for my first block.






And here's four different versions - taken at the end of the day. Mine is the first one with the border still being played with.





And also on the day we had a show and tell of a cute baby quilt made by D. Too cute!






Thank you Kayly for a lovely day and lunch - we need to do this more often.
