The dates for SIT are creeping closer and closer! The girls on our little Facebook group are getting excited! I can't wait!!!! 3591kms and two flights to get to a weekend of sewing and shopping and gossiping. I was so disappointed I couldn't go last year so this year the dearest husband had no choice but to say of course you can go sweet heart...... Besides I have a birthday this year that ends with an 0 so I'm thinking of it as a little birthday pressie to myself.
But back to the houses! The wonderful Cass organizes a Sample Swap held on the Saturday Stitching Day. It works along the lines of you make five of one item, then in the afternoon Cass will break us into groups of 6 people, a circle is formed and we do a weird dance (which is very important apparently!) And I'll get something from each person in my circle and they’ll each get something from me! So I thought I'd make 5 little mini house quilts. I thought I'd make them a little bit special and incorporate the Sew It Together logo. I duplicated it on an A4 sheet in Photoshop and then printed it out on the printer at home on a sheet of Matilda's Own printable fabric sheets and wolah, roof fabric!
This one is ready to sandwich. Think I'll make up the other four and then sandwich and quilt them together.
