Such Fun...Much Inspiration!

OMGosh!  We had so much fun on Saturday ... take a look!
Lila worked on multiple projects...isn't this quilt going to be stunning? Yum!
As she promised the night before, Tammy worked on her binding!
Jan was busy making "piles" of log cabin blocks!  See how her quilt matches her sewing machine?  Isn't that just the cutest?  Love it!
JoAnn was busy making this beautiful Irish Chain quilt for her daughter!
Diane U. has been busy...
Yep...she made two of them!  One is to be auctioned off at the Tea and the other is a door prize for those who are decorating tables!  I want one ... they are stunning!
She was quilting this table runner, it is also for the auction!
Diane W. was busy all weekend ... she was demonstrating the Accuquilter and teaching those who took her Hypnotic quilt class!
Kay made a lot of progress on her Hypnotic quilt!
Cece was also taking the Hypnotic class, but rather than use a Bali Pop, she chose a two fabric combination.  It's so fun to see how others interpret a pattern.  Love it!
Valerie began a set of placemats and table runner.  It is a Judy Niemeyer pattern ... they will be stunning!
We received a special visit by the Guild's youngest member ... Princess Amelia!
All this fun ... all this quilting ... it was exhausting!
Remember!  We are doing it all over again next weekend!  You won't want to miss it!  Friday, November 5th 6:00 pm!  Saturday, November 6th is a very big guild day!  Sewing begins at 10:00 am.  Potluck at 6:00 pm.  Quarterly Membership meeting begins at 7:00 pm.  Diane will be sharing a demonstration and pattern for a ten minute table runner!  You won't want to miss the fun!  More details later!

Come & Join Us at October's "Time to Sew"!

We had a small group this evening...just six of us...but there was a huge amount of inspiration!
Tammy "wowed" us with this quilt!  Of course the picture never captures how beautiful it really is stunning!  All oriental floral prints...beautiful!
One of our local long arm quilters did the quilting...excellent work.  Tammy had requested double batting...the effect is great!  She plans to attach the binding this weekend...she used the Accuquilter to cut her strips...I'm guessing it took all of 10 seconds!  OMGosh quilters...this tool will transform our quilting lives!  Love it!

Diane was busy putting borders on her Hypnotic too is gorgeous!  She plans to put it up for auction at our Annual Tea!  What a generous gesture!  We will continue tomorrow at 10:00 am...come join the fun and be inspired!
