'Production Line' sewing is a great way of creating QFOs
A 5th Tuesday in a month has often been an excuse to hold a Sewing Day
These days are busy and productive, noisy with chat and laughter as we endeavour to solve the problems of the world

Visitors welcome   -   BYO lunch!

You'll see there are favourite 'Production Line' blocks that repeat across the years
especially sewing strips cut from leftover fabric onto a foundation - Simply Diagonal, Louisa Star, Pentagon Crazy, Hexagon Crazy

  

16 Simply Diagonal strip blocks (36" square)
