Guild Meeting

Last night was Quilt Guild meeting and this was the block I stitched for April....guess what, I didn't win the blocks this month either.


We started bringing gifts for our secret sister this month and this is what I got. The piping is wrap and fuse piping that looks really easy to apply. I just love the purse pattern. I read through it already and really want to make this soon....love it. And a little "sampler" of Frolic by Moda....love that line a lot too! Of course a gift wouldn't be complete without chocolate!

We had a hands on demo for the blanket stitch. I have done it before, but I always have problems with getting it started and looking good. I learned the right way last night. And we have a needle case in the end!

Nice gift from your secret sister!

Nice goodies in your gift! I gave up on doing the block of the month, because I sometimes would win.....and I have enough UFOs already. But that's a pretty one!

Oh I love Frolic! Your blanket stitch looks great. I wonder if I'm doing it right or wrong! LOL

I have the same problem with doing the blanket stitch! I'm fine once I get started but I always forget the proper way to start and have to go look it up. I agree with Terry . . . yours look great!

There's always next month, lol. Your little gift package looks lovely, it will be interesting to put it all to good use

Love the needle case! I can't start my blanket stitch either. They can get addicting and make great gifts. "Happiness is cross stitching" is a great blog for tons of ideas on this.
