SEW much accomplished on Sew Day!!!!!
Everyone knows that you have to have a little bit of Show 'n Tell whenever you get a group together. Juanita brought in this quilt that is going for her grandbaby. Some might think - poor child, already being told what team to root for; however, Juanita says you have to bring them up in the way they need to go. Yeah! Wildcats!
Virginia and Dixie were only going to drop in and see how the foundation piecing was done - Sara talked them both into doing a block right then and there. So many times you get home and you forget a step. Good going Sara.
Busy room and not everyone doing the same thing.
Susie and Carol were speaking blocks and how to square up when a triangle is involved and Lisa was listening to see if she could add anything. Frances was squaring up the community service blocks. Quite a few blocks came in on Saturday.
This is the project Lisa was working on - so gorgeous.
Dixie is way deep in thought to make sure she gets the right side going the right way.
Juanita is cutting out her pieces for the bird house. Wait till you see what her end results were - wow.
Lorraine brought her barn in to embroider. Leila worked on hand quilting.
Which ever direction you looked in - the ladies were very industrious.
Jeanette was adding on her 1/4" seam allowance here.
Dixie was not used to Vevia's machine - and was taking her time.
Hayley and Sara were working side by side to share tools and such, and of course for mom to give pointers.
The above is Vevia's block finished up to squaring it off to 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Sara and Jeanette offered Virginia fabric and she made a fantastic bird house.
Back to the drawing board for some of us. Sara decided she was going to use only scraps and on a few pieces she had to sew scraps together to get enough - AND WHAT AN END RESULT. Love the patch work look and the colors are so great. So if you have not made yours yet, think about making the sky pieces all different fabrics.........the result is totally different.
Like mother like daughter. Hayley loves her greens and her bird house really looks like it was sitting in the spring of things. So cute.
Remember how we said wait untill you got a look at Juanita's - Safe port in a very stormy night.?! That fabric made us all think of heading for cover - it is a great interpretation of possibilities.
Dixie and Jeanette both finished off their bird house's with no fuss what so ever - right? Both blocks came out great, taking their picture with eyes open and smiling was another thing.
When bird houses were complete, there were strip piecing, block making, and a great embroidery class going on. Susie and Lisa gave Janet a hand and Susie even taught Juanita how to twill.
A lot accomplished on a fun day.
Hope more of us get a chance to join in on the next Sew Day - June 7th at Industry.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW!!!!!
