Sunday Sewing

How about a start and TWO finishes?  Not bad as well as teaching Sunday School!

A young Teaching Assistant from school is leaving on Friday to become an Au Pair for a family in Europe.  I wanted to make a quilt that the staff could all sign using fabric pens, so she could take it with her, but didn't think I'd have time . . .  but as you can see, I found time!

I even managed to machine applique her name onto it

I did wavy line quilting in the sashing, and added a red gingham binding (can you guess our school uniform is red?!)

I also manged to finish my Star Of Africa block - the first one for our international Bee.  I hope Patti likes it

I have also sent her two scissor tags, and I'll add some chocolate tomorrow before I post it.  No danger of it melting this side of the pond, but it's warm in Canada, so hope it gets there OK!


  1. 2 finishes? *thud* Well done on both :o)

  2. A Wonderful block, Benta. I love it! Can you tell me what is that beautiful, intricate log cabin design over the tags?
    The quilt is great, you're a quicker quilter...

    1. It is looks like a pair of Ss.

  3. Lovely stuff again Benta. Hope you got the name right :)

  4. Once again you put me to shame! Well done

  5. Oh, Benta! What a fabulous block! I am thrilled with it, and the stitching is wonderful. Love the scissor tags too; great idea. Yummy, chocolate!!

  6. Benta....what amazing embroidery. I have no skills with embroidery. I tried to use my machine to add my initials, but even that ruined out to be a mess so I scrapped the idea. I bet Patti will love it.

  7. How on earth do you get the time!!! xxx
