Sewing Circles

At this month's workshop some of our St Mark's Quilters were sewing circles, baby Dresden circles.

Armed with a plastic wedge templates, bamboo skewers, and a few useful tips from me, our lovely ladies were soon creating colourful little circles of awesomeness.

Look at Di C's first Baby Dresden!

After chain piecing her tiny wedges Gillian discovered another use for them :-)

Our Queen of Blue (Di B) made this one.

Meanwhile Susie pin-basted this Blanket of Love and started to free motion quilt it. 

And these finished Blankets of Love, bound for RPA Hospital's Newborn Intensive Care Unit, were added to our growing collection.

Yes, we do enjoy ourselves at our monthly workshop!

Do you belong to a sewing circle? I'd love you to tell me about it.


  1. I wish I did belong to a sewing circle but I have never found one that I enjoyed - I did go to a small group for awhile but they weren't the friendliest group around - I love all the baby quilts that your group gets done with and the love that goes into them - and friendship - you all always look so happy and friendly - the group I tried to stick with wasn't all that friendly, everyone just worked on what they wanted to but no one seemed to want to put time into nice quilts to give

  2. What a fun and productive group Di! I do belong to a small group , 4 of us now which started at 8 people yrs ago but moves and life changes have diwindled us down. We sometimes do a weekend sew/ get away but always have fun together at dinner and chat once a month. Love my sewing friends!

  3. So much quilty goodness. No, no sewing circle for me. The one group that meets has different ideas about being a group than I have, so I just have my own fun!


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
