Sewing Together

It rained like crazy both Friday & Saturday, but it didn't stop us from sewing.

Those who came to sew, knit and visit were: Vicki, Peg, Estelle, Nancy, Betsy, Terri, Carole, Helen, Cathy, Mary and Becky. Keep reading to see what everyone was working on.

Above and below - Vicki's project is a batik quilt made from squares
CSQ members traded a few years ago.

 Peg was busy using her scraps to create a woven plaid look to her quilt.
Carole and Terri pin-basted Carole's quilt made from fabrics she bought in
Florida, right before they moved to Hanover.

 Betsy was machine piecing 1/2" segments to make these beautiful small blocks (5 1/2"?)
for a quilt for her great niece, Lulu.

 Estelle was given a bag of scrap squares and triangles and she worked on sewing them
together to make a quilt for a veteran - she thinks she has enough for two quilts.

Nancy spent both days prepping her applique pieces -
she's using Sue Garmon's "Ladies of the Sea" quilt pattern.
(I took a picture of her pattern but it didn't turn out.)
Mary stopped by to visit while she was knitting a sock.
Cathy used her time to cut pieces for a baby quilt.
Carole chained pieced these adorable little squares while Helen did all her pressing.
What a great team these two are! 

Helen also cut out a cute little dress for a toddler.
Terri was busy machine piecing.

And Vicki was paper piecing blocks.
DRUM ROLL. . . .
Many hands worked together on Saturday, and we now have all the blocks together for
 our next donation quilt. Borders will be added and it will be machine quilted and given to
W.H.E.A.T. (Western Hanover Emergency Action Team) for them to raffle for a fundraiser.
Hanover County has given us an additional sewing day each month.
This month it will be Monday, January 27,
so mark your calendar and plan to spend a day sewing with friends.
It's a great way to be able to visit and get to know other members.
