Charity quilt sewing day and a new free quilt tutorial uploaded

I cannot believe we are into February already.  It has been a busy week.
I stayed up late on Wednesday night to view and take some photos of the eclipse. I put together this little collage from photos taken with my basic point and shoot camera.

On Friday I attended the first workshop of what will become a regular monthly charity sewing event offered by Stewarts Sewing Machine Centre here in Devonport. I taught the ladies a few piecing tricks and we assembled some quilts for the local women's shelter. I had the embroidered squares already stitched out and also the fabric pieces pre cut so it was just a  matter of zipping everything through the sewing machine.This is selection of same of the finished quilt tops. Now it is down to time to me to quilt them but it has a been a bit too warm here of late to be doing that at present.
Charity quilts Friday Feb 2
All of the embroideries are from Hatched in Africa.

Here is my latest quilt design and as you noticed we stitched out a couple of them on Friday. I have named this one Celtic Valentine Twist.

 The 52 inch x 52 inch Celtic Valentine Twist quilt is embroidered with the magnificent new Cara Mia set of designs..
I had the red and pink love heart fabric so pushed the red/ pink colour boundaries with this.
