June's Time to Sew Event!

One of the wonderful features about our Time to Sew events is the anticipation of what members will bring to show and share.  We never fail to inspire one another!
Barb has been especially busy ... working away at getting things done!
She blew our socks off with three finishes!  All mouths fell open when she unfolded this Quiltworx quilt!
And look at the amazing quilting!  Wowser!
This was a scrap quilt she worked at piecing during retreat.
And her third finish is the scrap happy log cabin!  We were so inspired by her accomplishments!  Wonderful work!
Valerie and Sam were busy making tote and travel bags!
Sam is famous locally for her themed tote bags, and many members are lucky recipients of her talent.  She personalizes each one by choosing fabrics that reflect the person she is making it for!
And she always makes them reversible!  Such fun!
Sam was also celebrating this recent finish!
Marianne was busy working on a traditional wedding ring.  It is paper pieced and she is using fabric that is 30's themed.
She recently finished this amazing top, scrapped up with more 30's fabric! Wonderful!
During the afternoon, she pieced this month's block for the Fat Quarter Shop's "Snapshot" sew-a-long!
We all enjoyed how Marianne personalized her block by adding a stem on the cherry!  Too cute!
Diane was busy putting binding on a quilt!  Finishes always feel great!
Neva pulled out some squares from a guild fabric exchange and made great piecing progress!
Terry shared a baby quilt that she recently finished!  Sew fun and cheerful
She recently finished paper piecing the sewing themed blocks she has been working on!
She began piecing them into a wall quilt by placing a narrow black border around each block.
By the end of the day, her top was finished!  She has plans for embellishments that will bring this top to life in a very special way!  We all look forward to seeing the results!

Another inspiring and productive day!

Time to Sew in May!

The sun was shining, but there were dedicated quilters with tasks they wanted to accomplish.  Everyone experienced success on Saturday!
Sam was putting on borders!  Such a striking jelly roll quilt!
Sally could see the finish line ...
... on her "I spy" hexagon quilt!  It is amazing!
And now that the piecing is done, we're dying for her to count the number of hexagons and triangles she used!  Such an accomplishment!  We are especially impressed that she finished it while her children are still young enough to use and enjoy it! ;-)
Diane brought in a quilt that was pieced by a former member who now lives out of town!  Diane had done the long-arm quilting!  We all fell in love with the quilt ...
 ... and went head over heels when we saw Diane apply the binding!  Wonderful quilt in every way!
Marianne brought in a spool quilt she recently pieced using Pat Sloan's fabric!  So bright and cheerful!
Every month we marvel at all she gets done!  Another recent top ... terrific fabric choices!
Look at these super cute kitty cats ...
... they are in this cheerful quilt top especially designed to show off fun fabrics!
Marianne's Norwegian Woods quilt has been quilted and bound!
We all decided that we like the back almost as well as the front!  Wonderful!
These sweet little houses are Marianne's new scrap project!
Speaking of scraps ... she used leftovers from a king sized quilt ...
... to make these two pillow tops!  Beautiful!
Valerie's Overture Jillily quilt is stunning!  She spent her day piecing the final border!
Sue shared this beautiful quilt ... made entirely from fabrics in her stash!  Sew inspiring!
Angela was able to stop in between her daughters T-Ball games!  She shared a finished top that she began piecing at our spring retreat!
She has already begun a second quilt from the same book.  Gorgeous!
Terry's star shines brightly in this quilt!  All that is left is the hand stitching on the binding!
Look at her go!  All the units on this Quiltworx project are done!  Wowser!
Terry spent Saturday piecing rows of her Blue Ridge Beauty ... and has the top half finished!

The time we spend together every month is sew inspiring and productive ... filled with friendship and fun!
