Guild Sewing Day
First up...a comfort quilt top that Cathy and I worked on together. These friendship star blocks were made by several members of the guild. We managed to put the 35 blocks together and add the borders. Cathy will quilt this one and someone else will add the binding.
Next up, lunch! I bought all of the ingredients (except for the milk) for my lunch at the local farmer's market this morning.
My second project was a baby quilt--I had made 14 of the blocks before I arrived at the sewing day--I completed the last 5 blocks and set them 4x5. This quilt top was made from a jelly roll that had been in my stash for too long and needed to be used! The solids were scraps leftover from other projects. I have already picked out the backing and the batting is cut and ready to go.
This will be a gift in waiting for a baby someday. It is always good to have a gift ready in case a baby shower invitation comes in the mail.
I also brought along two quilt tops, one of which I hoped to baste before the end of the day. This was my third goal for the day. It counts as my slow stitching project for this week.
