As well as the above there are also some wonderful works in progress. Here’s a couple we saw around the table this week.

Actually there’s lots more but I’ll save that until next time. Except to say that we had several people start with Apatchy this week. Some came to learn a new craft, some for the company. Whatever reason it’s great to expand the groups. Now we have even more inspiration to draw on.

After talking a few posts ago about the difficulty of the 1/4″ seam we did have a couple of issues on Wednesday when Sharon and Emma’s second block in their sampler quilts just wouldn’t sew straight. Unfortunately some reverse sewing was required. Those of us in attendance tried to explain that we all make mistakes and that no matter how long we’ve been sewing or how advanced we are at it, the unpicker is still a necessary part of our equipment. C’est la vie. I hope they’re not too discouraged.

Third time lucky Emma!

Looking good this time Sharon. It's definitely the right measurement now.

Nice one Apatcheez – you’ve done well!
