Not The Weekend I Had Planned

Last weekend was to be spent with friends at Jane's cottage quilting and catching up but an unexpected early morning  trip to the Emergency ward landed me in hospital for 4 days, which meant that I missed all of the fun. Thankfully the gals went ahead with their plans and have sent through a few pics of the fun that they had for me to share, not the least of which is Jane's finished top made from men's shirting and vintage sheets.

She had been working on the saw tooth border and finished attaching it so now it is ready to quilt. Just beautiful. She may hand quilt this one with perle cotton, which I think would be lovely.

Such a bright and cheery quilt, no wonder she calls it Summer Picnic.

Betty was a real commando too, working on a few projects. This bag was for Jane. It was her birthday on Monday so Betty was able to get some design input (things like adding a pocket) as she worked.

Isn't it great? It is lined with the same fabric that was used for the side panel - a beautiful large graphic floral print that just makes you feel good when you look at it. Apparently the birthday girl was quite happy with her prezzie....M

Glad you're home and recovering. Looking at Jane's cheery quilt is the perfect remedy for taking the gloomy out of a unexpected situation. Take care.

Four days in the hospital is a long time. I hope you're feeling 100% now.

I enjoyed seeing the projects your friends worked on during the retreat you missed. Bright and happy!
