'Midnight Madness' and more...

The Friday girls have been very productive this week with many of them coming to class on both Friday morning and again on Saturday for this months 'Midday to Midnight' MADNESS! This absolute stunner belongs to Robyn and is nearing completion. Robyn is English paper piecing the hexagons with lots and lots of fussy cutting along the way.

Shirley is making lots of 'star a day' blocks and is still up to date!
For anyone who has been chasing the templates - they are now in stock.

This one caught my eye... I love how the dark fabric has been cut.

Leigh has completed Mrs Billings! At 9.17 pm Wednesday evening to be precise!

 Here is a close up, well done Leigh!

Eighteen dedicated patchworkers turned up for this months Midday to Midnight madness. They all arrived with gusto, loaded with lots of projects and enthusiasm. When midnight chimed there were still sixteen weary souls in attendance - all happy, tired and ready for bed.

There were several Mrs Billings on the go as well as the 'star a day' blocks and many other lovely works.
Shirley brought Mrs Billings along to be quilted... YES she really is hand quilting Mrs B!

Glenys is appliqueing her final Mrs Billings border in place, almost ready to attach.

Lou was motoring along machine piecing the double diamond border for Mrs Billings...

And I had a lovely evening of stitching and catching up on all the chatter of whats whats in the quilting world... stuff I miss out on sometimes with the bustle of running the shop. A great time was had by all and I am sure there will be lots more of these nights to come!

Until next time,


  1. I'm so disappointed that I missed out. Its great to see all the Mrs Billings quilts coming along.

  2. Thanks for a lovely day Karen. Can't believe how much I didn't get done in 12 hours! And I do sew as I talk!

  3. Incredible work , love the Mrs Billings quilt , spectacular and I can just imagine the work involved but wow !!! I came to this blog via Elyte :-)

  4. Hello Karen, I came to visit via Elyte. What a fabulous show and tell and what a great idea for a stitching event. I am sure Elyte did a good job of her sewing and talking - multi tasking.

  5. Can't believe there are soooo many Mrs Billings quilts on the go! Well done for the girls who have finally finished. Helen F

  6. Loved seeing all of the wonderful quilts in progress! Thanks for sharing.
