Time to Sew with a Mission!

OMGosh!  It is amazing what a few dedicated guild members can accomplish!  Our Annual Tea & Auction is less than two weeks away!
Sam is a member of the "Large Auction Quilt" committee ... with her leadership and three "worker bee" members ... the mission was accomplished!
We felt the pressure, but in NWQG style, we made it fun!  Valerie was in charge of all math calculations!  We are grateful!
Terry B. is always so productive ... she and her machine put on several miles of stitching Saturday!  Terri S. served as the "guild gopher" ... cutting, pressing, and a bit of sewing!  Sara H. also came by and helped out for a few hours.
The center star layout.
Fortunately, Diane U. had made all the small star blocks in advance.  That made it possible for us to put the top together in one day!  Thanks a million Diane!
It is a king-sized quilt!  Shannon E. volunteered to piece the backing and prepare the binding!  Member Linee' has volunteered to do the long-arm quilting and to apply the binding.  We still need a volunteer to tack the binding down by hand!  Please contact Sam if you're able to help with that!  Whew!  What an effort ... thanks to all who made and are making it happen!  Our members are amazing!
We made time for a bit of show and tell.  Sam is making good progress on this beautiful quilt.
Terry is ready to quilt this adorable Berenstain Bear top!  Sew sweet!
She also has several auction items in progress.
Thanks to Terry for making arrangements for the day!
