Lovely day

Yesterday at Rocheberie Quilters was lovely. We're never sure how many people will turn up, and since this was the first Mystery Quilt Day, there was even more uncertainty. However, we needn't have worried, as there were over 50 people there, some making the quilt and others content to chat and do hand sewing. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to take any pohotos, but Jane did, so you can look at her blog if you're intrigued. Unfortunately, Jane had to leave early to take her daughter to a party, so didn't take any pics of the finished quarters. Here's mine so you can get the idea.

The little triangle at the top right hand corner is the centre of the quilt. I haven't joined the sections together yet, as I've decided to make the other quarters and mix the fabrics up to make the colours more even.
I have finished my Jelly Houses quilt, and took the instructions along to the meeting, and sold them for donations to Project Linus. Half a dozen people were kind enough to buy them. Thank you for that.

A few other people brought jelly roll quilts, one a lovely log cabin star, a Chinese coins and a rail fence. I'll look forward to seeing what people do with these strips of fabric!
