Fun with Victoria

Victoria came to Seattle this week, and we got to spend a few days sewing together.  What could be more fun than sewing with friends?!  



On Monday, Buffy (Sally) and I picked her up from the airport and wisked her off to Goodwill for supplies.  Here's the loot, and Victoria and Sally with their purchases.  Sally took her purchases home, and Victoria and I got to work.



Mine on the left, Victoria's on the right.  Victoria had a Christmas quilt in mind, so she collected red and green.   I found two long, narrow curtains in black floral chintz.  I saw wonky Chinese Coins immediately.



54 x 80"

By Wednesday morning, here's what we had!  Then we quickly got dressed headed out to meet up with the Rebels.

I honestly don't know how you guys manage to take the worst looking op shop finds and make them into the most brilliant quilts. Pure genius if you ask me.
