Christmas in July Fun!

The Holiday Spirit was alive and well amongst our members on Saturday!  Christmas music was playing, Holiday themed treats were available and everyone was as busy as Santa's elves!
Angela pulled out a Jelly Roll from her stash and was making a holiday themed "Fastest Jelly Roll" quilt!
Marianne has been busy as a bee doing a bit of paper piecing ... literally!
Beautiful results!
She was also busy working on this scrappy nine-patch!
Susie started a Christmas log cabin quilt!
This is a quilt top that Susie pieced using all of her "bonus" right triangle blocks from her Gingham Stars quilt!  Beautiful!
Speaking of Gingham Stars ... Diane was working on hers!  All units are pieced!
Kay was busy working on her pieced mini quilt from our 30th Anniversary Event with Sherri Falls as well!
Kathleen was working on a Bonnie Hunter quilt!  We loved her collection of Holiday fabric scraps!
Tori has joined the miniature quilt block movement too!  Lovely results!
Sam was busy adding borders to her quilt top!  Nearly done!  Borders are always a reason to celebrate!
Shannon was busy making Christmas stockings for her sweet little family ... soon to be three!  A huge thanks to Shannon for organizing this fun filled guild event!  Hmmm ... rumor has it that many would like to see this become an annual event!

Happy July!  Happy Holidays!  Happy Quilting!

It is a "Time to Sew" event designed to give us a jump start on Holiday themed projects or gifts!
Shannon is our host and the brainchild behind this fun filled event!  This event will include Holiday music, decorations, and games!

  • Baptist Church Christian Center
  • 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
