Design Floor Friday - January 2020 - Friday Night Sew-In

Welcome to another edition of Design Floor Friday!!  I'm here to share the events of this month's Friday Night Sew-In.  We started off the year with light attendance.  Only 7 people in attendance.  Honestly, I enjoyed the quiet evening.

Everyone was busy with projects!  Have a look...

Sara completed a baby sweater...

... And brought it along to sew on buttons:

Sherry worked on another of her lovely Fan blocks:

Joy cut a bunch of strips for her niece's wedding quilt:

Ann worked on her Christmas wall/door hangings:

Marian laid out blocks for her Fall table runner:

Ann readies the mitered borders to finish up her second Holiday project:

Dale cut more pieces for her friend's quilt:

Karen showed her Challenge quilt for the Original Works group:

The theme was Remake or Re-imagine an Old Quilt or Pattern:

Marian added binding to her latest donation quilt:

Karen set up her machine to apply binding to her Challenge quilt:

Joy wanted to make sure that the RSC Quilter knew that she was working with some Light/Bright GREEN which is January's Color of the Month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

Ann grimaces for the camera, as she was in a hurry and got that last border sewn on the WRONG direction:

Marian's wall hanging is coming together beautifully:

Karen prepares to hand stitch her binding:

With strips cut, Joy breaks out her Sizzix Die Cutter:

Ann began the onerous task of ripping out the paper on her project:

A bajillion triangles, ready to meet Joy's sewing machine:

Marian got this far on assembling her table runner:

Ann, Joy, Marian were the "night owls".  As usual.  Long after everyone else had gone home, you could hear the following around the room...  "One more seam."  "Oh! Only a few more pieces to cut."  "Just need to pack up."  Eventually, we went home, too.  Exhausted, but pleased with putting in a good night's work.

Until next time...
Quilt til you wilt!!!

  1. My quilt guild in Washington hosts a Quilt 'Til You Wilt day the middle of March every year. It starts at 6 AM and goes until midnight. It is so much fun! One year I was working on a pink and black quilt for my daughter and left everything where I was sewing to attend something else going on in the room...the quilter next to me spilled coffee on my quilt blocks and didn't bother to tell me. I didn't discover it until I was pressing the quilt top to put it on my longarm. Since we had over 100 ladies there sewing, I had no idea who it was - we draw quilters from the little towns all around my town. I was lucky that the stain came out when I washed the quilt after it was put together. Made me really reluctant to share space that closely with anyone when piecing a quilt. Next time I'll make sure no one has an open drink container next to me. I'm glad you had a good time at your Quilt til you wilt!
