Sew In Day

Hello Everyone,

Happy Valentine's Day to all!  May you be surrounded by love today!

On Saturday, the Modern Connecticut Quilt Guild had a sew in day!  It was fun to sit with the girls and chat and get some work done!  Although, I must confess, I just tore papers off the back of my Glacier Star quilt, no sewing for me.

But I did want to share some of what the girls were working on...

Heather was working on a Christmas Quilt.  Really cute and really ahead of time!

Here is Heather with one of her show and tells.  This is a sampler quilt that she had created.  The colors are very fall like.

This quilt, Heather designed for her father, who is currently in the hospital.  Our best wishes for her Dad.  Heather, I know he will just love this quilt.

She also showed these bright block that she had been working on, I believe it was as part of an online bee.

Sarah was working on some cute little bibs for her 11 month old daughter.  They were so cute and backed with a very soft terry cloth, great for wiping away the baby food on the chin.  

Here is Elisa showing her Total eclipse blocks from the class I taught a few weeks back.  She has made some terrific progress!!  Elisa also has a blog post up about the sew in day.  You can read hers by clicking here.

She was also working on these, which will be turned into a pouch for a swap partner.  I am totally in love with this color palette!

Maddie made this fabulous pillow.

Susan was making these wonderful placemats.  I just love the black, white, and red, but the curves really make them sing.

Michele had made one of these cute little bags for the holidays.  She was working on some blocks as well, but I forgot to get some photos.  My camera batteries were malfunctioning.

Sue was having fun with some bass fabric and piecing them into circular blocks.

Here are the sets of our pieced and non pieced blocks that we bring to meetings. We are hoping to get them all pieced and quilted, possibly give them to a charity... maybe?  Any way here are the orange and teal blocks.

Purple and green blocks.

Blue and apple green.

and red blocks.

So that is a wrap up of our day!  It was fun and relaxing all at once.

I also wanted to point out that I have put a new Page or Tab at the top of my blog called "My Schedule".  This will be continually updated as new lectures/trunk shows/and workshops are scheduled.  If you would like to take a class with me or just come to one of my lectures, you can check here for the information.

If you know of a guild, shop, or quilt club that would like me to come to teach or lecture, just send me an e-mail!

Until Next Time...

Love the quilts! Do you know if the Christmas quilt at the top has an official pattern, or did Heather just create it from scratch? Love the look and tempted to make something similar!
