Friends & Quilting Nine Patch..

What better way to spend a day than with friends...
A beautiful day outside, not too hot...perfect for a day of chatting and stitching with friends.
It was so nice to see and catch up with the girls again, first time since our Christmas break up lunch.

Our hostess Lurline made us all very welcome, here are some of us sitting around the table while we catch up a little before we get down to some serious stitching... I won't name all the girls, but that's Lurline on the right, then my visitors from Brazil, Janete and her son Fernando and then me next.

I took my nine patch swap quilt to work on , nearly finished... just the binding to sew back and a bit more quilting on the border..

I love this backing fabric, I bought it on sale... only wish now that I had bought more.
I matched up the back joining seam...perfect match...so easy to do on a big print!
Here's a link to a tutorial on joining and matching design pattern on the backing seam..
Time to think about dinner for DH now...something light for me!...
Until next time...take care...♥
