The day was SEW productive...
Extraordinary, really! Especially, since I didn't even pack a sewing machine. I had planned to use B's while she was cutting or pressing, but she just brought in another machine to use instead. She had an ulterior motive, as I was sewing the HSTs for her portion of our quilt swap:
In between stitching sessions, I cut and prepared binding for my Birthday Quilt:
Choosing an alternate binding for my June 2021 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge was also high on my task list:
On the way to and from the pressing station, I enjoyed the view of this lovely deck garden:
Helena chose, cut, and stitched borders...
... For this gorgeous UFO quilt from WAY back in the day:
Helena is happy to have made progress on this quilt:
Britt made binding for the quilt that recently came off the rails of my longarm. It was the jumping off point for our Quilt-ing Swap:
While I didn't get a photo of the binding, I did capture this photo of her at the twining loom:
Complete with an action shot...
... And a photo of the nearly completed rug:
I also took pictures of a couple of her finished rugs. This is a lighter weight one made with thinner fabric strips...
One that was made more plush by using wider fabric strips:
Anyone need a desk? This one is bound for the local Habitat ReStore later in the week:
Thank you to Helena for suggesting that we get together and to Britt for hosting our little reunion! Color me oh-SEW-happy:
Until next time...
Quilting friends are THE BEST!!!
