Saturday Sewing

Another day of sewing together.

We can always count on Nancy to dress for the occasion!

Nancy was busy cutting out and machine appliqueing the last block of her Snowman Quilt.

By the end of the afternoon the block was added and
now it just needs borders.
The picture doesn't show all the detail in this adorable quilt.

Georgie was making a flannel quilt for a veteran.
Here she is pin basting the layers together before she machine quilted it.
The quilting is finished - and ready for a binding.
The red print had dog bones so she appliqued a Scottie on the back
and will add a cute plaid ribbon for the dog collar.
 This all flannel quilt is sure to be a comfort quilt.

We had a nice thunderstorm while we were sewing - look at the view
out our door of our Red/White/Blue cars - we are a patriotic group!

Back to sewing:
When Karen got chilly, she wrapped herself in
batting as she hand-stitched the binding on another charity quilt.
I didn't get a picture of the quilt, 
but hope she will bring it to our meeting on Tuesday.

Betsy hardly moved from her sewing machine where she was stitching
Shoo-Fly blocks using her favorite circa 1880 reproduction fabrics.
While she stitched, others played with her blocks on the design wall.

 Here's Betsy giving a demo of how she makes each block.

Vicki stopped by to visit and Julie worked on her binding all day (quilt she showed yesterday). She was on the last side when we packed up everything to leave. Just as we were about to leave the sky opened up again so we waited it out. It's sunny again - maybe all the showers are past us.  See you all Tuesday evening. Meeting starts at 7 - come earlier to visit. Rumor has it that Julie is baking a cake, and Nancy is bringing drinks.
