Group Sewing

I went to the quilt group today! What fun! I really enjoy being with this group. They are so welcoming, and busy.

Today someone was teaching a paper piecing class. I didn't take part in that, but just doing my own sewing. There were beautiful projects all over the room. I got very involved taking pictures.

This fish is the project they're going to do next. It's raw edge applique with a layer of tulle over it. Looks fantastic.

Barb taught these Izzy purses a couple weeks ago, and someone has been very busy making aa bunch for Christmas presents.

This is all paper-pieced. Aren't the colors to die for? They just POP!

Do you see the roosters on this fabric? Aren't they cute? Or are roosters handsome?

This will be a set of placemats, with a table runner to match. Another one that the colors POP!

And a happy red lap quilt. Very nice corners on it too.


I was working on my melon/creamsicle quilt. Got quite a bit done, but made a couple stupid mistakes. Perhaps I got a little more involved in chatting than sewing?

When they make laws like this, I am SURE to obey the law!


I linked up today with WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced and Let's Bee Social @ SewFreshQuilts.

I loved seeing all the projects this quilt group was making. Thanks for sharing them. But the one I liked the best was the completely paper pieced one with the shades of pink and aqua with black, those colors really popped!!!
