Quilting with Friends and Hats!!

One of the things that I really enjoyed before the pandemic was my weekly Rec centre quilting day. Before we all had to stay home , once a week from 1-9 quilters gathered, worked on their projects shared ideas and stories and laughter, a lot of silly giggly laughter.

It’s been so nice to be back lately and this week it hit me, that I really did miss the laughter! I really don’t mind being at home, which works really well with a home based business however it sure is nice to be back with friends!

This week I decided to revisit my Longtime Gone Quilt project. I had put it aside while working on a few other projects. I had been bringing my Stellar quilt however that pattern really requires concentration and is best suited for working alone in my studio.

These are the blocks that started my decision to make the quilt.

Have you seen the hats being made? This morning I read on a blog that I follow that she is making one with crumb piecing, that looks like fun.

I have been reading this blog for a while now, her Franken bags are so inspiring and now her hats!! She shares the links to her tutorials on a recent post including one for Finnish Salmon Soup. Here is a link to her fun blog!
