I joined in on a little fun Xmas mug rug and coffee cup cosy swap. I had a great time designing this.
There are many patterns around and it wasn't hard to make.
I really wanted something different so I added a pocket for that special treat...
These are the little extras I sent.
I know my partner was happy when she received these.
I am still waiting for mine.. international post takes a while...
Now I have joined the Xmas box swap but the site has been down for a while...
ON RINGO LAKE TOPS ARE COMPLETED BEFORE THIS YEARS MYSTERY BEGINS.
Her is my 2017 mystery top that I finished a while back.
My mission has been to get my friend, Maxine to finish hers too.
Last year and this at our retreat Maxine has brought her quilt along.
Now, keep in mind, Maxine only started quilting about 3 years ago. She was a bit daunted with all these small pieces and the importance of accurate seam allowance.
We started to look at where she was up to at an all day sewing day at our local group.
We laid out the pieces and worked out what needed to be done. Sorry about the blurry photo.
Another blurry photo but all the sashings have been done.
And here it is at the end of the retreat.
Yes we noticed the mistake at the top.
We are not trimming it until it is quilted . The lovely colours Maxine chose instead of going scrappy look amazing.
