Friendship

 I Have had a lovely day with my good friend Sarah  at a patchwork friendship day. I went with Sarah  to help her with her stall for the day. It was set up beautifully with lots of goodies for sale.
 Love these lacy zips.
 I bought the pattern to make this pretty folder, designed by the very talented Gail Pan
 I also couldn't resist this pretty  charm pack. Not sure what I'll use it for but I'll think of something.
 Sarah gave me my quilt back, all beautifully  quilted. The photo doesn't really do it justice, when I bind it I think I'll do a special post on this quilt. Its my favourite right now. I used all my best fabrics including a few liberty prints.
 I did a little bit of sewing today, I'm making some hexagons out of the new Fig tree fabrics called Farm House. I love it.
 Last night I finished Hubby's quilt. I am so happy with how it turned out, I put a photo on Instagram yesterday and had many requests for a pattern, so in the next few days I will write it up.
 I can't wait to give this quilt to Paul. At first he will  say  " Just what we need.... another quilt" but I know he will love it . It has a special meaning for all of us.
These 5 stars represent the 5 of us, all excited heading off on our first overseas trip.  Our 2nd trip will be  next year.

Now this quilt is finished I'll be thinking what I can make next. I never run out of ideas.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thankyou for visiting my little blog. xx

Great day with your friend! And a couple of fantastic quilts. You're right - we never run out of things we want to make. I feel sorry for people who don't have hobbies. I'd sure hate to have to spend all my free time cleaning house or shopping. LOL! well, maybe fabric shopping would be okay. :-)

The stall looks great and you are buzzing along on your latest projects. I'm looking forward to your special post - such a stunning quilt. The flag quilt is cracking and I like the symbolism attached.
