September Sew-In 2016

As the summer comes to an end and the kiddies go back to school, we are holding on to some beautiful weather here on Prince Edward Island. For the September Sew-In we had a small group of 7 quilters attend and we even had a few gals drop in for a visit and a chat.

Marsha was working on her Disappearing Hourglass block, using the MSQC method for making HTS's.

Here's one of her lovely blocks:

Helen was working on these fantastic placemats, her grandaughters helped her choose the fabrics. I think they did a great job! (maybe we have some future quilters here).

Gail had some great ties she was getting ready for crazy quilted fan blocks, love some of her finds. Oldies but goodies!

Cathy was working on assembling her "Slats" blocks just one more color set to go and then she can start assembling. Yay!

Lucinda was doing some beautiful redwork embroidery on this festive trio, can't wait to see them when they are all done.

She also had some blocks for a baby pirate quilt, to work on, here's a pirate and treasure chest block coming along nicely. This is going to be super cute when it's finished.

Diane was assembling scrappy string blocks for a PEIMQG charity project. They are looking awesome! 

Velda was working on her #100days100blocks- a tula pink sampler sew along
and her blocks look amazing! We also got a sneak peak of her Queen Bee block and its really fun, Can't wait!

Heather J dropped by early in the day and brought along some family to see what we were up to, she also reminded us about the Frank Lloyd Wright challenge due at the September meeting and plans to have a viewers choice contest for the completed projects. It should be alot of fun.

Dawn and Colleen came by around lunch time for a visit. It was nice to see them during their busy day.  Well folks that wraps up our September Sew-In. We had a lot of fun and look forward to the September meeting.

The following two months Sew-In and Meetings are planned for the West Royalty Community Room, Sobeys, 39 Babineau Avenue, Charlottetown.  Save the dates.
