January 2017 Sew-In

Happy New Year from the PEIMQG! I hope everyone has enjoyed their holidays and that they are looking forward to 2017 as much as I am. I have lots of Quilting and Life Goals for the upcoming year. 

We started 2017 with our Sew-In taking place a week earlier than usual because of a previous booking at our venue, but we still had 9 members in attendance or dropping by to say hi. It was so nice getting together to relax and sew after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

Dawn was working on a flanged binding for "Kylie's Cuddle Quilt". Front of the quilt features Colleen's Queen Bee Blocks from our first round.

Lucinda was working on 2 baby "Bubbles" quilts for some Twins. Double the fun!!

She also brought her awesome sewing machine cover, Sew Pretty!

Janice was busy working on 2 projects. Firstly her " Modernitional Bear Paw" by sewfreshquilts who featured a free sew-along. This quilt is amazing. such tiny pieces and so many HTS's (Half Triangle squares).

She also showed us this still unnamed wall hanging, with faced binding and featuring some fabric painting. I am not the only one who would love to have a workshop on this project. (Hint, Hint...)

Heather J was working on binding this wedding quilt. Curved 4-patches using the Quick Curve Ruler and her original design make this stunning quilt
"With Love, X O."

Here's a close up of her Curved 4 patch blocks...

Linda was working on binding her "Funky Chicken" table runner. The fabric choices in this were perfection. Love the Whimsy. I will have to try making some of these fun blocks.

Jean was also binding her quilt. This is her "Snakes and Ladders" quilt

And a close up of the blocks....

And her backing suited the quilt perfectly...

Cathy worked on her Amish Medallion Quilt, a Free Block of the Month from Craftsy. After the first lesson she no longer fears paper piecing. Here is her first month completed.

Liz was working on her "Metro Rings" quilt, so many pieces to cut...

Roberta stopped by for a visit and to drop off Susan's Queen Bee blocks (a reminder to all members who still owe Susan her Bee blocks or QOV blocks, please bring them to the January Meeting).

We sure had a lot of fun getting together. I can't wait for the next Sew-In.  Hope to see you there!
