Quilt top.........

Sorry for the delay..........so much to share but since we got back from our short holiday I had work and they ended up being pretty long days for 2 days (out of 3).............5 hours more in the 2 days then normal...............now that's the kind of days I expect working at home not in town..........and I have a visitor at the moment too.........more about that later..........
@@@@
But back to the task............I shared the fabrics here and then progress here..............
On our way on holidays I had a night at the Cottage on the Hill............
We were talking about the new quilts for the year and Kerry had these gorgeous fabrics and I she said she needed to make something with them...............so I said well what are we making...............hence we started looking at ideas and talking about ideas and started making within 1/2 hr............
I started sewing and Kerry cutting and ironing an then we swapped..............
 a layer cake, jelly roll and some yardage and here we go.........
Kerry had the quilt top finished the next night.........
It's probably even been quilted by Betty now..........
But it's great and I'm thinking this could be my retreat quilt for 2015............
Or maybe I could just get a kit from Kerry and make it anyway now...........
Kerry's been busy pattern writing as she has 3 new quilts for 2015......
It was so much fun just letting it develop as we go and sewing on the one project with a friend..........it did come together pretty quick............ 
Catch you later

  8. When sewing with someone else, a project grows very quickly, and the time also goes too quickly!
