Sew! Tammy Sew!

These are pictures of Tammy's quilts. I am posting for her since her computer is on the blink. They turned out very cute. We took these up to Morris quilting today. They should be done in a week. I also took a couple of quilts and we took one for Connie. We haven't tried Morris yet but thought these would all be good trial quilts. It seems like it will be less expensive. We will let you know! We stopped at Gracie Lou's and again I came out with a purchase. Just a pattern this time. I already had some cute boy fabrics and I saw this pattern and thought it would be perfect! Now I need to finish my other started projects so I can start this one.

One down.....on to the next!

I finished a quilt top! This isn't the strawberry shortcake but it was one I was doing for a gift. I like how it turned out with the sashing on the sides. I hope the colors aren't too Halloweenish though. (Is that a word?) Anyway, on to the strawberry shortcake! Happy sewing!

Monthly Block Swap

We had a bit of inspiration last night after some of you had already left. We decided to have a monthly block swap. You don't have to do it but if you want to it would be fun. Every time we meet you bring a completed 12" block, made any style, with any fabric, etc. It just needs to measure 12" square. Everyone that brings a block for that month will go in a drawing and you will go home with a new block. After a year you will have 12 blocks which you can make a fun picnic quilt with. It should be really fun and it will be fun to see what we all come up with. No stress just make it fun!

The Ball Is Rolling . . .

It finally happened! After a lot of talk and no action we finally got our quilt group started.


It's going to be so much fun. I think everyone is excited and motivated about it.
Even though we were all pretty much working on the same quilt pattern, a layer-cake pattern called Strawberry Shortcake, it was fun to see everyone's cute fabrics. It will even be more fun to see all the quilts completed.

Make sure you share the pictures of your progress.
