Lots of Accomplishment!

We may not have had a lot of people able to participate in this weekend's Time to Sew ... but those who were there accomplished a lot!  Take a look!
Barb H. worked on the binding of this Blanket Toss themed quilt...
... she also brought in her Popsicles Sticks to add borders ... such a fun quilt, her granddaughter will love it!
Terry B. made great progress on her Hunter's Star ... isn't it stunning?
She also brought in her completed Mystery quilt ... several of us are now motivated to finish ours!  Thanks for the inspiration Terry!
Diane U. brought in her Popsicle Sticks as well ... we all love the bright tropical colors ... it breathes summer!
This is a Pineapple top that Diane is working on ... like many of us, she is a big fan of the Kansas Troubles fabrics ... she is making this entirely from her stash of K.T. fabric.  Yep, we were inspired!
Here is Diane using our Accuquilter to cut more 1.5 inch strips for her Pineapple quilt!  Wow!  We are loving that Accuquilter!
Kay brought in this quilt made by her daughter Lindsey ... talent never falls far from the tree ... lovely quilt!
Kathleen C. inspired us with her Road to Bali quilt top!
Lila worked on binding this McKenna Ryan quilt ... anyone who has done any of her designs, knows how much work is involved ... and look at the binding ... a ton of corners ... ouch!
Every fused piece in stitched around ... Lila used metallic thread ... stunning ... the center block with the village, it alone has over 200 fused pieces!  OMGosh!  We were more than impressed!
Sam worked on her miniature Hunter's Star ... I tried to show how small the pieces are with this photo ... we all decided she deserved the "Courage" award!
Here she is with the piecing finished ... that smile was well earned!

We all accomplished a lot and had a terrific time together!  And as always ... look forward to the next one.  When a date is set, we will post it here and on the guild's Facebook Wall.
