The girls are here

and the group blog is up and off with a bang! The Secret Sewing Sisterhood is the group's name. Eleven of us in total so hopefully there will always be something interesting there to see. Merri and Meghan already have their first posts up. I'm sure I've said many times how lucky I am to have this group - well when you see what they're up to I'm sure you will agree.

Most of the things I've been up to are not postable - preparing a quilt to send to the quilters, setting up the blog, thinking.........nothing that you can photo. But I have finished my next MM block.

I like this one quite a bit. Also starting to prepare the background for Phebe. Here is my choice

It's from the Valley Forge line.

I've also been trying to create a mosaic. Here's my first attempt. Not perfect - but OK.

Thanks so much to Andi for the info about how to do it. Check out her photos. They're much more pro than mine.

Oh and if you are in the market for a Doll's quilt Lori has a great one that she is posting the pattern for.

Not sure yet how I'm going to split my posts between here and the SSS blog.........I'll have to sew twice as fast!

Stay cool,

I've already discovered the Secret Sisterhood blog. You all are so lucky! I'm looking forward to following both your blogs.

Lori said...

Wow! The applique blocks are stunning! I love the background you chose too.
If you ever figure out how to photograph "thinking" let me know! LOL I spend quite a bit of time doing that!!

I love the vase fabric in you latest MM block! Your background fabric for the Phebe quilt is delicious. I think it will be gorgeous. I'm already enjoying the Secret Sisterhood blog, what fun!

Janet said...

I loved seeing your blocks together. Your newest is stunning and your fabric choices are sublime as is your stitching. I'll look forward to wonderful posts on the group blog.

Liz said...

Love that background for Phebe, haven't thought of mine yet. I'm following the SS blog to see what you're all up to there as well. Busy, busy, busy.

Hi Deb

I am also doing the Phebe quilt just waiting on the background to arrive but in the meantime have started on Anne's Legacy by Di and enjoying that to.

Maybe we should start a blog dedicated to all the ladies starting or started Phebe and need continued support as it is such a big quilt to finish. Just a thought. Would anybody want to start the blog i would but due to work commitments i don't really have the time. I used to sit and stitch with Kerrie at Summer School in Wodonga.

Enjoying both blogs.
