Sewing With the Girls

On Tuesday, a group of quilters converged at Terry's house for a day of sewing. It's been awhile since a large group of us has sewn together, so it was lots of fun getting a chance to be together to chat and sew.

Here is a rundown of the projects we worked on.

Terry, our hostess, created this table runner. She is dissatisfied with how it looks, but soldiered on even though she really wishes she could get those center white blocks to be more uniform.

The pattern Terry is using is this one from Kindred Spirits.


Sheryll has started a project for spring - and Easter. It is a refreshing change for her, since she has spent so much time working on a pumpkin table mat lately.


Sharon P. brought a stack of 2.5" squares with the intent to create a random stack of 9-patch blocks. The colors are bright and cheerful, and the plan just might include pairing these with some Kaffe Fassett fabrics. The plan also might include setting 4 blocks together to become 16-patch blocks with KF fabric surrounding. I like the way this plan is shaping up!


New to Terry's for sewing was Becky who brought a fantastic project that we all salivated over. Using EPP techniques, Becky is making Dresden Plates and then covering the centers with hexies. OMG! These are gorgeous!



Becky's stitching is so tidy, thus her blocks are equally tidy. I think several of us could very easily be persuaded to make this beautiful project. What a dream it will be when finished!

I am sorry to report that I did not take one single picture of the stitching our friend Jan was doing. She was working very steadily on her nutcracker embroidery, I believe. I will see her again tomorrow for Frankfort Girls sewing; maybe she will bring the same project and can bring you up to speed.

I was equally negligent in taking pictures of my own project. That is easily remedied, however, so that just might be the topic of tomorrow's post.

I did, however, take a couple of pictures of Terry's sweet Schnauzers, Millie and Cooper. You may recall that Millie's first (and only) litter of puppies included one white male - he remains with his mama, and they are quite a pair. Most of this day they spent in coma-like naps on the sofa.



Happy Quilting, Friends!
