January Thursday 21st - Sewing Day "Aunt Sukey's Choice"

On Thursday January 21st 2010 Darelle and Helen chose to do the block Aunt Sukey's Choice.

It is a block that came out of the 1930's, but that does not mean you should be restricted to fabrics of that era. Think about scrappy, batiks, brights, Amish or reproduction styles. Arrangement of the block is also up to you.

A search on the Internet can give you many ideas. Here is a link to Google Images for some ideas.

Helen has made up some sample blocks if anyone is interested to have a look.
So members turned up on the 21st with their sewing machine and fabrics and a good time was had by all. BYO lunch. Patterns are available from Helen. Photos of quilts made will be posted here soon.

Happy sewing, Jennifer
