Wednesday Sewing Sisters

There are several members of our local quilt guild that, for a variety of reasons, do not go to the night-time meetings.  We didn't want to miss out on the social and sharing aspect so we organized a daytime guild meeting at our LQS in 2011.  With the closing of our LQS last summer, our day meetings came to a sudden halt.  By the time October rolled around, we were missing our gatherings and I arranged to use a room in our local library to gather and sew.  

Since many of us a guild members (some do attend the night meetings) we do share guild information, but we decided not to be a "guild" meeting with a specific agenda or project to work on.  Everyone brings whatever project they are working on and we sit and chat and sew.

Judy was frogging the ditch stiching she did last month
Peggy was pinning her cancer ribbon getting ready to quilt

Merry was handpiecing her apple cores

I stitched the inner border onto my Easy Street top.  It was nice having lots of space and bigger tables to work .

I also finished stitching this little wall hanging I began in a class at Becky's Quilt Barn last September.... you can read about it here:;postID=8659972040860552852

I returned home from class and got busy and it has been patiently waiting for me to decide how to complete it.  The problem is that it is too small for my wall and I don't have enough of that blue to make it bigger.  After consulting with the girls today, I have decided to add a wide muslin border and applique some flowers and or baskets and make a final scrappy border to finish this out.

It was a fun morning and I look forward to our next meeting.
