Sew Day

Saturday was Orlando Modern Quilt Guild's second Sew Day.  This location was sooo much better than the first.  We had plenty of room, light and, most importantly, electrical outlets!

Kathryn worked some on her pink house quilt and then brought out this beauty to work on.  This is all hand stitched!  Even when looking at this up close, you can not see her stitches!!!  Incredible!

Beth brought two machines.  While one machine was embroidering this gorgeous family tree,

Beth pieced the backing for her rainbow quilt.  I love how she just used the stripes on two sides.

Clare finished this quilt for a friend.  I love these fabrics!  She used the tutorial Beth gave at our guild meeting for her binding.  Clare even had time to start P.S. I Quilt's scruffily quilt.

Jodie worked on her Red Pepper Quilts hour glass blocks.  Jodie has quite an eye for choosing the perfect designer fabrics for her projects.  We were drooling over her Hunky Dory.

Jodie also marked and sewed blocks into half square triangles for another pinwheel quilt.

I completed my pinwheel sampler blocks....just in time for Week 8's block instructions to be posted.

I did not start, much less complete, the five other projects I brought to Sew Day!!!  Where does the time go?  I have to say, this group is the best!  In addition to sewing, we discussed best places to buy fabric; we compared online shops as far as the best service, quickest shipping, lowest prices; there was some fabric swapping; bartering deals were made; charity projects discussed; and quilting tips were shared!  Can't wait for next month!  If you are in the area, check us out.

Have an amazing day!!!


  1. So sorry I had to miss this month's Sew Day. Looks like you all had a great time. I love all the projects. What a talented group!

  2. I thought of you ladies off and on all day Saturday; sure wish I could have been there... Kathryn's quilt is amazing.

  3. Lucky you to have such talented ladies to sew with. I am loving Kathryn's quilt. I'm doing a similar quilt top right now and it is taking FOREVER to sew all of the applique down.

  4. so bummed I missed it - but looking forward to May! looks like a good deal of work got done too!
