Busy, busy, busy!

But not really me..........

The quilting teens had another session on Monday night and finished their second block, a sawtooth star.

Not without hiccups though, Megan stitched part of hers with an extra wide seam and wondered why she'd amputated some of the points - having to sit and frog-stitch the errant seams will leave her with a lasting reminder to check she's stitching an accurate quarter inch in future.

Amazing they actually got anything done - they were in a very silly mood and ended up having a hair ruffling contest which Sarah won hands down as Megan never has her hair fastened up. As you can imagine they took some keeping to task! How can two 15 and 16 year olds be so daft?

Here are their blocks so far, next week we're going to make a start on a friendship star with a four patch centre

You slave driver you! Rip Rip Rip til it's right! Well it is a tough lesson to learn, but better now than later to establish good habits!
Couldn't help wonder though, are they sticking their tongues out behind those blocks! You must have the patiences of a saint working with these two! Give yourself a pat on the back! ;o)

How fun to see the newest quilters and their projects come to life . . . a hair ruffling session seems like just the thing to ease the tensions after a sewing and frogging session *s*
