Sewn and Quilted

I know I mention this shop often but I do enjoy every visit.  I was there for a class on Wednesday and I put together the middle of my Times Past quilt. I'm very happy with the result and I found the hand piecing very relaxing.  
On Carol's advice I used Aurifil thread to hand sew it.  I'd always thought all the buzz around Aurifil thread was a bit over hyped, but now I've used it, I understand why so many people love it.  It was beautiful to sew with.  

You can visit Sewn and Quilted HERE and they will be at the upcoming quilt show at Jeff's Shed in Melbourne.  They are in Row A, please pop by and say hello.

I'll be working on some little hexies for this quilt tonight, as part of this fun event.
You can pop over to Wendy's delightful blog, Sugarlane Quilts to sign up.
Isn't this beautiful.  I found it HERE at Country LaneQuilts.  This is such a wonderful place to visit with many, many delicious small quilts on display as well as a lots of fabulous free patterns. Huge thanks to Kathleen Tracey for sharing her creativity with us all. Kathy also has a wonderful blog A Sentimental Quilter.
Have a happy Friday
