Sit and Sew

Although we only had 8 ladies stop in for our guild's Sit and Sew - they all accomplished much of what they had in their plan for the day.  This is Steff's (in the lite sweat shirt) Wounded Warriors quilt that she was able to get sandwiched and basted using the many tables we had available.

Gloria and her Wounded Warrior quilt in progress.  She got all the way to the last border.

Sharon working her Wounded Warrior quilt and Ida seeing what everyone was working on.

Sharon got the sashing on her guild challenge BOM - same block but used a fabric representing each of the months for each block, so cute.

Kathy came a little late as still recouping from travels - she won a ticket to go see the Pope in NYC - of course we had to hear the details.

But she did get all her strattas done for her Wounded Warriors quilt - and then the bobbin ran out.

I didn't make my challenge as I found I had enough layer cakes for two quilts - all of the blocks got done though. It was good to just chain away with the sound of machines and quilters. These will be my guild charity quilts for the year - not due until April 2016.

Emily playing with a huge pile of 5" squares to make blocks for charity quilts.
Ida is way down in the corner (my other picture came out blurry) and she made her two charity pillowcases.

And Ginny took the time to do some hand quilting.

Thank you ladies for a marvelous day,
Sewingly Yours,

I enjoy sewing with others, too. Looks like it was a pretty, sunny day with lots of sun shining through the windows. All in all, a very good day.

Its always good to get together to sew for a cause. Somehow I seem to get through heaps when I do that. Big pat on the back for everyone.

That looks like a wonderful way to spend the day, surrounded by other quilters and making progress, lovely.

I know that was a great day for you. I spent the day doing the same thing, sewing with friends at a sit and sew. That is the best way to sew, with the sound of other machines running around you.

That's a nice way to accomplish the charity quilting. Only the pets are missing.

I love our guilds sew-ins. Not too many people, but, lots of chatting and getting to know each other better.
