A full day of sewing with others, away from home where the distractions are fewer, is a productive monthly treat. Our meeting venue houses our community stash, so some of the sewing is on quilts that go to our community collection, and some is for our own sewing. There are lots of opportunities for cooperation and collaboration, and just for catching up with each other. And on the first day of a four day heat wave (in March!!), we really appreciated the air conditioning.
|Marg volunteered to sew labels on finished community quilts.|
|Elaine W was sewing blocks for a new community quilt. |
She is always well organised.
|Susan Mack loves flying geese and was making hers very|
efficiently with the ‘no waste - four at a time’ method.
|We pin basted this pretty blue community quilt|
for Julie to quilt.
|Elaine B had this community quilt ready for basting,|
then launched straight into quilting it.
|Susan K has finished one community quilt top in these |
gorgeous fabrics, and sewed up the scraps into the
beginning of another one.
|Susan M (we had four Susans in the room!) cut backing |
and batting ready for this one to be long-arm quilted.
|Noelle finished a quilt top with just two corner blocks|
to add to one border - it used a fantastic mix of prints.
|Miriam has sewn enough star blocks for one quilt top and |
has cut out enough for a second.
Miriam gave us a demonstration of her new Slotted Trimmer
ruler for making perfect half square triangles.
Susan K quickly organised A group order for those of us
who need one, and submitted it online!
|Jill cut out a whole community quilt - 100 red squares, and |
100 unmeasured triangles for an organic look
for simple graphic blocks
