Friday Night Sew In and Mill Rosie Friends

Friday saw me back working on my Cornelian quilt.  I managed to finish all the hexies and sew them onto the block and so this block is now complete.

I am really enjoying making this quilt.

Yesterday I joined the Mill Rosie Friends for the first time.  I had the most wonderful time and everyone was so lovely.  I am looking forward to the next time already.

This time round they had a red swap.  This is what I made.

 It is a design by Abbey Lane Quilts and is called The Beatle Bag.  I used my favourite fabric range Scrumptious.

Now I have to finish the one I started for me.

 This is what I received in the swap.  I love the cute little bunny on the front and all the extra goodies inside.  It was made by Barb.  She has done such a wonderful job.

These are all the swap presents.  All of them were so beautifully made. 

It was very inspiring seeing what everyone was making and I had absolutely the best time. 

Until next time happy stitching.
