Saturday was the third (actually the second; because the official second sew in was canceled due to snow) Sew-In for the Webster Quilt Guild. We had so much fun. Some of us started as early as 8am and some stayed until 8pm. Twelve full uninterrupted hours of sewing... no phones, no kids, no husbands, no making meals, no anything but sewing! Here are some of the projects others were working on...
Cheryl was busy working on Market Bags that she will be donating to the Webster Quilt Show's boutique table. The monies raised from the sale of the items will be used to benefit the guild's scholarship fund.
Debbie was busing making sure her pieces were paired properly before she sewed them together. Her comment was, "As she sews, so shall she rip!"
Jennette was working hard on the Webster Guild's Block of the Month Sampler quilt. She was making sure she had all those pieces placed just right.
Marki had received a quilt kit from Quilts For Kids. It is an organization that offers quilts to comfort children in need. The kit comes with all the pieces cut, backing and easy to read directions. Marki pieced the quilt top in just a few short hours. Next she will sandwich the top, the backing and a batting that she'll supply and quilt it. She'll bind the quilt and place the label on that Quilts For Kids supplied to her. The quilt will be returned to the organization and will bring warmth, comfort and love to a child in need. Thank you Marki for your generosity! Make sure you check out Quilts For Kids website. If you decide to help this great cause, please be sure to drop me a line and let me know so that I can tell Marki that she inspired you.
Gretchen had a beautiful quilt she was machine quilting, that used Blank Textiles' Chelsea fabric. I think she used Quilter's Dream Green batting in this quilt.
Jill had some really pretty Four Patch Posies' blocks. Everyone was helping Jill decide which blocks should be placed where. Jill had made enough blocks to make two lap quilts. She is planning on making one to giveaway and keep one for herself. I can't wait to see the end results. Jill never disappoints!
Until next time…
Happy Quilting, Kathy
