Sunday was a sewing day for DCMQG members. One of our members hosted us at her house…a frat house for which she is a house mother. The students are on break, so we could use the large dining room to sew in. Woo hoo! A day of sewing. We love to have sewing days, but we are growing and it is hard to find places that can accommodate us but don’t cost too much…or cost anything at all. Where does your guild find to hold sewing days?
First up for me was to work on my improv block for the Simply Solids bee. I had such fun playing with the colors in the big box of Kona solids. I love this block so much that I almost don’t want to send if off…but I will.
Next up was a block for Quilt Around the World II. Amanda’s blocks are aqua and grey with a pop of color. I made the quatrefoil block that I like so much.
Next up was something for me…working on my March goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes to finish up this batik wall hanging that I started ages ago. Remember this one? The one that I was using black batting for?I added the remaining border strips, layered it and started the quilting. It was nice to have some folks around to discuss quilting options with 🙂 So far I have made double lines within the grid.
I am off to the other coast to tend to some family matters, so I foresee some hand work in my future. Hopefully I can finish up this quilt when I return and still make my march goal! Wish me luck!
