Friday Sewing

Sewing with friends is always fun and Nancy's shirt was so appropriate.

Betsy was excited to start the morning off with Show & Tell of 3 quilts 
she just got back from the machine quilter.
They are beautiful - and so Betsy.  

 Here's a close-up of the previous quilt.

Carolyn stopped by to pick up more blocks for the "I Spy" quilt she is making
for a lady veteran's quilt and to show us her paper-pieced
project for the fabric challenge with the gold/green fabrics.
She will have it completed for our quilt show next month.
 This month's block: 1930's prints.
Please remember to bring yours to the meeting Tuesday night.

 Julie did a fine job of quilting this little baby quilt.

 Julie will soon be giving this quilt to her sister-in-law - the same lucky person she
made the placements and bowl for last month.
The quilt is perfectly square - photo doesn't do it justice. 
See close-up below.

Betsy is making a fundraiser quilt to benefit the food pantry at her church.
 (This is just a portion of the quilt)

Estelle was working on her mystery quilt with a beautiful assortment of fabric.

Karen was finishing the binding on this cheerful quilt  - another one of her many donation quilts.

Nancy is making the final blocks for her whimsical Snowman Quilt.
Elsa came by to visit and trim her applique blocks, Dot was knitting and Becky did a little hand applique.

It was a great time visiting and sewing together and we came up with several good ideas about future quilts for our group to make. 

We will return in the morning for more sewing and visiting. 

REMINDER:  Our August program will be a discussion and Show & Tell of Log Cabin style quilts - please bring yours!
