November Sew-in

This month saw seven members working on various projects, one guest and three (Marsha, Colleen and Dawn) dropping in to see what was up!  Lots of quilty happenings on the go with lots of chatting and laughter.  Dawn and Colleen had their blocks for the Queen Bee who was not able to make it, but those present enjoyed seeing them.

 Janice was working on her blocks for the Sugar Block Club

Linda is working on an improv piece with rows of seven different colors. Here is her row of pinks.

Dianne was working on a charity quilt using string blocks. She also shared the story of how her ruler was returned to her as all her tools have her name and address taped on them.

Linda and Dianne brought blocks for the Big Bee run by CQA.  looks like we'll be able to donate a top for a quilt for Ronald McDonald house.

Lucinda was working on hand sewing her Farmer's Wife blocks.  Here is Periwinkle.

Velda was working on her pillowcase

 and her 100 Blocks!   what a commitment.

Her guest was working on her Map of the World quilt and then making oodles of blocks for her Sea and Waves quilt.

Heather was cutting background fabric for her son's wedding quilt.

Susan brought several projects along, one of which was Bento Blocks

 and another was Beach Balls.  The Beach Balls was part of a pattern book for jelly rolls in a box from the Fat Quarter Shop.

Heather and Susan also cut fabrics for blocks for a future Quilt of Valour quilt and Linda and Velda made two test blocks.  Love the camouflage and black together.
