While at Quilt Guild a couple of Mondays ago, one of the members of my Monthly Evening Bee invited me to join her Friday Night Sew-In group. Knowing that my DH is anxious for me to work on our niece's wedding quilt, I checked with him to see if he had other plans for the weekend. He was thrilled that I had found a platform for progress on the somewhat tardy quilt.
Linda brought her Farm Girl Vintage quilt to bind:
Ella brought Halloween squares to sew:
As Linda began binding...
... I was busy cutting:
Sara(h?) worked on seaming a baby sweater:
Kathy brought her collection of Ginkgo leaf prints to choose fabrics for a Scrappy Strip Tuffet:
Patty shared her new Barn Quilt:
I believe this is Karoline's wonderful strippy tote bag:
The church's quilt group won a ribbon at the DOQ Quilt Show with this lovely quilt, displayed in the fellowship hall:
To the best of my knowledge, this selection made the final cut for the tuffet:
Karoline will be working on this square version:
Kathy will be working in the round:
They will both start with a muslin base for added sturdiness:
Dale is working on a cozy new scarf:
We pulled this out of Ella's project box. She isn't fond of working with solids:
With the binding applied to this quilt...
... Linda moved on to another:
Congrats! to Sara(h?) on completing the seaming on this little sweater:
These are Karoline's tuffet fabrics:
Ann spent the evening attempting to familiarize herself with paper-piecing:
Patty had a question about this Jenny Doan quilt in progress:
The evening was a HUGE success! Approximately 16 yards of sheerweight fusible stabilizer later:
A little heat, a little steam, and a WHOLE LOT of time later, I'll be ready to cut them down to size.
T-Shirt quilts are a HUGE commitment, but they are SEW worth the time invested. Thank you again, Ann, for inviting me to join in the Friday Night FUN!! I was pleased to make such good progress in just one evening.
Until next time...
