February Inspiration!

Prepare to be inspired!  Our February Time to Sew event was a button popping, seam splitting, rip-roaring day!  All puns intended!
Buttons are popping because we're proud to welcome another new guild member!
We've admired her talents at the local craft fair ...
... and are happy she's joined in our fun!
Lila has been on a binding binge ... three projects completely finished!
She pulled out a project from her stash...

She made great progress!  It is going to be a beautiful quilt!
Marianne worked on multiple projects ...
... she shared a disappearing nine patch finish!
She shared the second block of the Fat Quarter Shop's Quilt-a-Long ....
... and has made great progress on these quilt blocks.
This is a wool felt applique' / embrodery piece that had been given to her mother while she was expecting Marianne!
Incredible workmanship and detail ...
... what a treasure!  Very inspiring!

Seams were splitting because of how much everyone accomplished while we were together yesterday!
Terry was busy working on the project selected during our Quilter's Anonmyous meeting last week!

She also shared progress on her new Quiltworx project!
At the end of the day ... the QA project was done!  Yay!
Susie came to work on her Jilily Overture!
Her applique' was gorgeous ...
... and she pieced the next border!
Shannon was busy making travel laundry bags ...
... for herself and her mother!  Such an inspirational mother/daughter quilt team!
Shannon also made great progress on her Trellis ... sew beautiful!
Tory arrived with a Jelly Roll top finished!
She was busy layering and pin basting ...
... and began machine quilting ... for the first time!
By the end of the day, she had finished all the machine quilting!
Sally continued working on her Buggy Barn Stars!
Before long ... the blocks were finished and laid out on the floor ...
... by the end of the day it was all sewn together!
Denna finished her Popsicle units and began to lay them out ...
... by the end of the day, all the blocks had been pieced together!
Neva brought in a top that had recently been quilted ... the hearts were all pieced during a guild block exchange that we had done years ago!  Lots of wonderful memories are sewn into this quilt!  What a treasure!
Danielle and her little Mister dropped by ... this new Mom squeezes in quilting during nap time!  It was such fun to have her drop by!
Cece was busy basting her Overture ... it is stunning!
Angela is making great progress on her Lucky Stars blocks!
Diane was busy preparing and cutting fabric for a community quilt we are making!
Fabric donations were collected from members.

The Rip-Roaring began ...
when members gave and received their fabric bundles!  It will be sew fun to see what member create and the reactions of the recipients!
Time to Sew Event organizer Barb was busy working on her red and white quilt top!
Creating rows ...
... and before long ... it was a finished top!

What a wonderful and inspiring day!
