Happy weekend! I thought that I would share with you what I did yesterday. I invited some of my quilty friends over for some sewing fun. We had a great time and were very productive. We all worked on different projects. Here you can see, from the Left to Right, June, Pam, and Justine working hard. You can also see my sewing machine working hard on my mystery blocks. Yeah, wouldn't it be great if the machine would work without me sitting there?
Here Justine (non-blogger) is sitting binding a quilt that I quilted for a customer. Justine does all my customers bindings that request it to be done. She is fantastic!! She got most of it done too. She just had about 1 more foot to do before she left.
Here you can see what Pam (non-blogger) is working on... I believe these blocks are from Patchwork Party 2008 Summer Edition using Moda's Prairie Paisley and Marti Michell's templates. She spent the day cutting the fabric for the blocks. They are really pretty.
Now we have a little show and tell from Justine. This is a jeans quilt that she is making from pre-cut jeans. It is a kit that she purchased from the mennonite women and is selling more of them. This is the sample she wants to be complete so that people have an idea what to do with the jean fabric.
Now onto June's (non-blogger) show and tell. However, first I must give you all a little bio about June. June is a designer for Red Rooster Fabrics. You can see some of her quilts on their website, and you can see mine and Pam's name on them for the the machine quilting...YAY! Also, you can see her picture in the back of Jennifer Chiaverini's quilting book Return to Elm Creek, and best of all the quilt on the cover of the book....June designed and made specifically for Jennifer and C & T Publishing. Very Cool!
Anyway, these are a few of the quilts that are June's. The first one she is currently working on and on Friday she was hand stitching the borders.
This quilt was a challenge that she had with one of the guilds. I love this one, nice and bright! And I benefitted from this...she gave me extra house blocks that she made and didn't use. Lucky me.
So, you are wondering about me.... I did work on my mystery blocks and you can see them in the picture with my sewing machine. I will post some pictures of them in the next couple days. I have also been working on getting caught up on the Noah's Ark Stitchery Bom. I should be caught up in time for the block 8.
I also have been working hard on customer quilts and have lots to add to my site. I just added 4 this morning and probably will add 4 every day until I get caught up. So check back often!
This weekend I plan on just getting caught up. It is rainy and a good time to stay in and sew.
I hope everyone will have a terrific weekend filled with lots of quilty things. Until next time, Happy Quilting!
