Zooming Rainbows

I had a great time zooming with Chookyblue and a number of crafty ladies from around the world. The zoom started at 6am (AEST) and went on all through the day with people popping in and out throughout. So much fun!

I had a few things to do yesterday, so couldn't be there for long, but it was nice to be able to pop in for an hour here or another hour there through the day and join in the chatting.

I finished appliqueing my freeform rainbows (blogged here), trimmed and put the blocks together. A medium pellon (fusible poly fleece) has been fused to the back and I've started big stitch hand quilting, in bright happy colours with Aurifil 12wt cotton thread.

Thanks to Chooky for organising the zooms for us. If you'd like to find out when the next zoom is on, visit Chookyblue's blog where she'll post about any upcoming zooms.

Thanks for your patience!

I have heard of a lot of people having trouble leaving comments too on various blogs - I wonder what the problem is it has been going on for ages it seems. That is nice that you do zoom with your quilting friends - lovely colorful project you got there

Yes, I’m one of the ones having trouble commenting! I even logged on, and back in again to all my Google accounts but nothing has changed. I even wrote a blogpost about. Love your free form rainbows. How lovely to have a Zoom sew-in! Susan (PatchworknPlay)

Great to catch up on zoom again ....... The rainbows look great.... What weight thread do you use for big stitch?

Thanks Jeanette. Zooms are such fun (when I'm not being a taxi driver) xx

You too! I hadn't been on the last few zooms, so it was good to be able to pop in for a little bit. The driving lesson went well and he came home very pleased with himself. Tells me he thinks he'd like for us to start practising in my car... ummm... not sure I'm ready for that!

I guess they did some sort of update (it looks a little different now) and probably need to iron out the kinks to get it working properly again.
The zooms are quite fun with lots of ladies joining in from all over the world. You know us quilters - we don't need to know someone well to be able to sit and chat for hours. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

You too Ondrea. It's lovely to be able to sit, sew and chat. I'm going to rush tidying up here so I can try to finish off the project this afternoon. Fingers crossed!

It's very frustrating Susan and I hope they get it working again soon. Maybe the people at Blogger need to reboot their systems - seems to solve most computery problems ;-)

Thanks for hosting us. It's such fun!
I use Aurifil 12wt cotton thread for the big stitch quilting. It's slightly finer than the DMC perle 8 cotton which makes it much easier to thread through the needle.

It is lovely to see those bright rainbows after all the rain of late.

I only got to pop in briefly while you were there, but zoom was fun as always. I do love your rainbows.
