Circle of Friends Quilt
So once a month some of us get together to quilt till we wilt at a LQS. There is free help and it’s always a lot of fun. This time around I worked on my Circle of Friends Quilt which was a $5 club. You only pay the $5 once. You get a free fat quarter each class you attend for 6 months and there is no policing. So if something comes up and you can’t finish it’s not a big deal, just attend the class anyway. There are 12 – 9.5 inch blocks that come from the book 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt blocks.
The pinwheel block was very easy.
The Christmas block was a challenge. Thank goodness I was at the quilt till I wilt and was able to get a bunch of help.
The next day my friend Cindy and I went up to Madison and stopped at the machine shop to pick up my freshly cleaned and oiled machine and then we headed to JJ Stitches where a little stash enhancement took place. I seem to keep adding the Civil War fabrics, which is a good thing as I love the scrappy look of the Farmer’s Wife.
