Another Sewing Saturday

I can’t remember if I’ve blogged about it before but there are 3 of us that try to get together every month just to sew & chat & have time together.  We keep trying to invite others but they just. don’t. come.   🙂

Sue put the binding on 3 placemats.  She was going to borrow my walking foot and then I remembered I had just gotten a new edge following attachment for the walking foot so she took that on its maiden voyage!

After I stitched around all the circles, I pieced the rings together for the center.  Then I left my sewing machine upstairs and pieced the first set of star points on Sunday.

I didn’t trim the star points yet.  I’ll wait until I’m ready to join them with the next step.  So imagine that you only see the outer edge of purple.
