show and tell...........

Seens as everything is secret sewing at the moment I snapped some pics of the girls quilts on Saturday........we had a great day in the chook shed............
This one has been floating along for awhile.............the borders were a stopping point and when my friend got here on Sat she started to work on something else.........but I made her get them done...........only because she told me earlier in the week that she wanted to do them.........
Doesn't it look great..........French General fabrics.........
This one was already done............brought out to show us..........
both off to the quilting fairy very soon...........
We have a nick name for one of the girls............she's not a BFF (best friend forever) she's a SFF Super fast finisher..........
thinking she would not stay all day the SFF brought the fabrics to cut out this quilt...........
she was done then but we said well why not start putting it together......there's a spare machine to use...............and look she is nearly done.............needs a border around it which is pieced but doesn't it look great.......and I am sure she would have finished the border today...........

We had a great day in the chook shed...........can't wait til we meet again..............
&&&&
I might be a bit quiet........lots on.........meeting meeting meetings helping organising a big event, secret sewing, work, blog meet next weekend, harvest, just a bit crazier then usual...........
 I should be on the ball with the SSCS emails so if I am quiet here you know why..........
Catch you later..............
