Another garage day!

This past Saturday, we were back in the garage sewing like crazy.  It was a beautiful sunny day.  We even walked to a nearby restaurant for lunch.  Claudia's friend, Lyn was visiting from Timmins, so we just had to have a sewing day.

It has been a while since I introduced the other ladies.  Here we have Lyn (orange sweater) and Claudia.
Lois and Darlene (owner of garage).
Lyn was showing off her finishes that she completed this winter.  Lyn and her husband spend their winters in Arizona and she wanted to show off what she did.   Anyone coming to the garage must be productive ..... that is the rule.  Even if they are just a visitor. 🐱🐱

She made a pineapple top using a printed backing for each block. 
You can see the printed block for stabilising.  Lyn did not enjoy using these.
She bought a special ruler (laying on the table) and  preferred to use that instead.  Much easier to handle.  Another pineapple top on the go.
A scrappy house quilt that she long armed herself.  Lyn got quite a lot of the binding sewn that day.
 Lots of eye candy on the design wall.
Claudia's Joseph's Coat. 
 Darlene's Hunter Star in blues.  Lovely!
I showed a quilt (that will be in the next post), and made circles.  Once my circles were done, I painstakingly removed borders on a top that never appealed to me.  More on that later.

Another Lynne (no photo) came to the garage on Saturday.  This Lynne was busy cutting up squares for QOV kits.  We all were busy, busy, busy and gabbing away like there was no tomorrow.

Yes, it was a good day!

My chore today is vacuuming window screens.  Yes, the weather is finally warming up and soon we might be able to open windows to let in fresh air.

Have a great day!

What a gorgeous finish with all of that hand stitching! The quilting is beautiful too. You definitely should be doing a happy dance. It's a big check mark off your list.
