Saturday (International Quilting Day) was spent with the fun members of the OMQG.
As with previous Sew Days, there was lots of sewing, collaborating, and creating going on!
I had high expectations for the amount of projects I would complete in the six-seven hour time frame allotted. I packed up supplies for finishing quite a few WIPs that have been gathering dust, as well as recently purchased fat quarters for one or two new projects I've had my eye on.
The first project I pulled out was this 3R's wall quilt which I started at a previous OMQG Sew Day. At July's Sew Day, guild members brought scraps to share and make mini quilts based on Amanda Jean's ticker tape tutorial. That day I didn't get any further than pinning my scraps to the background fabric.
This time I was determined to finish.....and I did....but it took much longer than I expected....
hmmm....can you say the whole day:-)
|Beth's first AAQI|
While I spent hours sewing around tiny bits of scraps, I enviously watched my fellow guild members crank out some really cool blocks, quilts and other projects. I did feel better when Beth referred to me as a Goddess....Temporary Quilt Registration Goddess that is ;-)
Check out her first Priority: Alzheimer's quilt!!!
I love, love, love it!
I didn't want the sewing to end, so I extended IQD to Sunday....besides I still had lots of quilting left in me ;-) I did manage to finally finish my March AAQI quilt Two Hearts. I ended up changing the backing and binding several times.
I also finished (except for stitching the binding down) my RK Solids Challenge. I ended up in a totally different direction from previous pictures I showed. I will save the completed quilt picture for another day, but here's a glimpse.
I'm off to hand sew that binding. Have an amazing day!!!!
