Sewing weekend

Today I spent the day at a friends studio working on some projects. 

I prepared my table topper by cutting out the centre circle and basting the top to the stitchery circle. This was not in the pattern however I thought reverse appliqué would be easier for me to do. 

I then got all of my flannel pieces and sewed the block units together. 

I discovered I needed some 1 1/2 inch blocks to finish some blocks. As soon as I cut these I will have all units ready to make into 18" blocks. 

I have photos of other projects worked on today. Will blog them during the week. 

Three days of Holidays left. 

Bridie update: Had some text messages. All going well.
