Wonderful Wednesday - June Friday Night Sew-In Edition

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  I'm here to share a follow-up post that I alluded to last Friday.


Here it is!  The June meeting of Friday Night Sew-In.  Finish It Friday?  Whatever you want to call it.  I call it BLISS!!!  Five hours of sewing with friends in a big open room with PLENTY of space to lay out quilts.

Thank you to Ann for arranging our meetings and sending out reminders!  We come in and set up in dribs and drabs.  We work at our own pace on our own projects, but often feel the need to checkout what everyone else is working on.

Here is what went on last week...

Sara worked on finishing a small sweater:

Ann did some prep work for her Kaffe Quilt:

Marian prepares to sew:

Linda's machine is already humming along:

She's working on this Wheel of Fortune pattern:

Here is one of Linda's completed blocks:

Ella's machine is waiting patiently:

Oh!  There she is!!  She's making her Flying Geese units:

Jean has come to stitch with us tonight:

Cathy spent most of the evening cutting out applique pieces:

Dale thought she would try something new...

She traded in her paints for fabric to make a quilt:

Karen is working on another Baby Clothes Quilt:

There was a LOT of interest in Karoline's new project:

She was too busy sorting through charm squares to look up:

Sara has another sweater on her needles:

Jean sat quietly stitching:

Sara's cabled sweater is just beautiful:

Cynthia was able to join us this evening and has been busy cutting for a new quilting project:

Ann brought QUITE the collection of fabric scraps:

Britt worked on adding a hanging sleeve to her newest art quilt:

Ann had some trimming to do:

Karoline's 3-D Pinwheel's have emerged from the charm squares:

Joy finished three-quarters of the panels needed for assembly of her Pecking Order quilt:

Ta-Da!!  Marian completed her final leaf block...

... To be added to these other two and some Flying Geese blocks:

Ann's progress can be seen on the bench and Joy's last few rows are down on the floor below:

Another section of the bench to show more of Ann's progress:

Joy posed for a picture with her Pecking Order panels:

Her dark BLUE scraps were studiously ignored:

Tomorrow is another day...

Thank you, again, Ann!!  The evening was SEW productive.

Until next time...
Quilting with friends is SEW much fun!!!


  1. You are so lucky to have groups to keep you working and finishing! I love the way your brights glow against the B/W piecing in Pecking Order.

  2. That looks like so much fun! Reminds me of a knitting group I used to go to on Wednesdays up in Vermont. I got to visit while up there last September.... different people but still a fun and friendly group.

  3. What fun! You hand out with a very creative gang.

  4. Wow! What a fun yet productive five hour group session! There are sew many fun projects, yet something for everyone. Let the creative juices flow for sure. What a great sewing space too! Fun, fun.

  5. When I grow up, I want to come live in your neighborhood and sew with friends like this! It looks so fun, and that big open space with lots of light is sew appealing :)

  6. Oh that looks like heaven to me... to have hours to sew with friends and be inspired by their stitching projects!
