June's Patchwork Party!

Terry B. had reason to party ... her table topper is completely finished!  It was inspiring for all of us to see it quilted and bound!  A finish is always cause to celebrate!   Great job Terry!  It is beautiful!
We received out fall kits and Terry got right to work on hers!
Snowbird Julie has returned for the summer!  It was fun to sew and catch up with her ... we're all happy to have her home!
Lila was busy cutting out a project!  Several other party members dropped by to pick up kits!  It was such a beautiful day ... in every way!

Lots of Inspiration @ Time to Sew!

Wow!  Our members have been busy!  Take a look!

Terry B recently finished this Alaskana version of the BQ pattern!  We all loved the fussy cut bears.  Both in the blocks and the borders.
She machine quilted a large bear paw print on the blocks and bears in the border!  What a beautiful wall quilt!
Terry also shared her completed table runner!
She spent the rest of the day working on her block of the month project!  It is going to be beautiful!
Valerie spent the day tracing, cutting out and then fusing together this Poppy wall hanging!
Sam shared her completed "Bob the Builder" quilt which will soon be on its way to a lucky little boy!
We loved the polar fleece that she used on the back!  Such fun!
Sam spent most of the day working on a paper pieced Mariner's Compass pattern.
Darlene made great progress on her paper pieced pineapple blocks!
Diane U. brought in her completed Midnight version of Bonnie Hunter's Blue Ridge Beauty!  Stunning!
She also shared with us her completed mystery quilt!
Diane spent the rest of the evening knitting this beautiful scarf.  We were teasing her that her outfit matched both quilts and the scarf...what fun!

We enjoyed our potluck dinner!  Minutes of the business meeting will be posted as soon as they become available.  We all left inspired and looking forward to next Time to Sew on July 7th!  Hope to see you there!
