We had one sewing day in Germany… and although I didn’t do any sewing on the machine, Elke got a lot done 🙂
When I was here two years ago, I was doing some hexies… and showed Elke how to make them too. Two years later mine are still floating around somewhere, unfinished, while hers are in a quilt 🙂
I love the way she put the blocks together with most of the blocks having a partial hexie in the corners matching the sashing…
Since I was here last, she got a new machine:
You all know how much I love Bernina! The 350 is a great little machine!
This is the fabric we bought the day before:
… chosen for this project from Missouri Quilts.
We started with the Dresdens… did lots of chain sewing…
And ended up with three beautiful Dresden plates for the flowers:
I mostly watched while Elke did all the hard work, but I did play around a bit with my yoyos yesterday… this is how they are looking so far:
Yesterday we went out to another lovely little German town, so no sewing done… which means I won’t get to see Elke’s project finished, but I am sure she will send me a pic when it is done. I am quite tempted to make something similar to that because I bought the same feature fabric. It will remind me of our short visit…
Today we took the train back to Holland.. hopefully next time we’re in Germany a bit longer!
Tomorrow we are going to check out one of the Universities in Rotterdam to see if DD can study there next year… more pics to come!
