2015 Time to Sew "Kick Off"

Wow!  What a day!  The first "Time to Sew" event for 2015 was inspiring in every possible way!  We'll begin this post with our new members!
New to Cordova ... new guild member ... but not new to quilting!  It was great to meet Sally and see her Buggy Barn star quilt!  Welcome Sally!
Long time Cordovan ... new guild member!  It was sew fun to spend the day with her! Welcome dear friend, Torie!
Somewhat new Cordovan, spanking new quilter, it was only her third or fourth time using a sewing machine!
She made great progress on her first quilt, Popsicle Sticks!  Welcome to quilting and the guild Denna!
Marianne charmed us all day by wearing her super cute apron!  A walking ray of sunshine!
She shared the first block of the Fat Quarter Shop's "Snapshot Quilt Along" with us!  The January block is called, Let Them Eat Cake!  Some of us are tempted to join in ... Marianne's block was so inspiring!
Marianne also worked on and finished her Granny Square quilt!  Beautiful!
Angela was busy working on her Lucky Star blocks.
She is making great progress ... it will be stunning!
Terry was busy ... working on her Jillily wall quilt!
Beautiful results Terry!
Darlene is starting the 2015 quilting year with purpose!  She spent the day working on her first applique' project which she intends to donate to our annual Tea and Auction!  Learning a new skill and using it as an act of service!
Darlene also shared with us her design plan for this Alaska themed wall quilt ... it is going to be beautiful!
Sam finished piecing together her Quiltworx's table runner!  It is a show stopper!
New long arm quilter Diane did a gorgeous job on Sam's quilt!  What a great team ... what a great quilt!
Diane spent the day working on her Jillily "Overture" quilt!
With stunning results!
Debra had fun using her new sewing machine...
... and made great progress on her "Popsicle Sticks" quilt!
Susie shared her recent finish!  It was a show stopper ... gorgeous!
Cece also spent the day working on her Jillily wall quilt ...
... with wonderful results!
Valerie is making amazing progress on her Farmer's Wife quilt!  Her goal is to make a block every day ... and she has accomplished more than that so far!  Next month we are going to force her to lay out all the blocks!  Sew inspiring!
She also applied the binding on this adorable Valentine's quilt!
Barb is amazing ... on sew many levels!  Look see!

Yes!  She recently pieced together all five of these quilts with blocks that she hand embroidered!
What talent!
What an accomplishment!
Plus ... this is the scrap quilt that she is currently working on!  Barb is off the charts wonderful ... she organizes our monthly Time to Sew events and has volunteered to continue doing that in 2015!  She is not only a super quilter, but she is also a super guild member!  Thanks so much Barb!

Happy 2015!  Happy Quilting!
Oh ... and meet our youngest guild member ... Lucy!
