Sew Day

PIECES is a rather unique quilting group.  Normally we don't meet as a group but rather work individually on the parts of a quilt that we enjoy doing.  Since our second anniversary had just passed we decided to have a "Sew Day".  The theme of the day was scraps.  Those of us who were able to get together worked on projects using scraps.  We had great food, lots of laughs, and a chance to spend some time together.

Here's some awesome quilts.

This was a disappearing 9 patch kit I cut to pass on to one of the sewers.  The more I looked at it, the more I liked it.  I ended up sewing it myself.  I love the way it turned out.  Shannon added a gorgeous backing and the quilting.

Paula pieced this modern looking quilt top in soft colors and white.  Sandy quilted it.  It is a simple pattern and colors but makes a big impact when finished.

This quilt was donated by a local quilt guild member.  It was pieced and quilted when we received it.  Cowboy prints and awesome quilting makes this little boy's quilt a winner!

I was given a sack of fabric that someone donated.  I was delighted to find this array of pink prints.  They were put together by Teresa and quilted by Shannon.  What a soft quilt for a little girl.

We have made many log cabin quilts.  They are great because  they use scraps and are easy to put together.  They also can be made easily in any size.  A boy or a girl is always happy to get one of these colorful quilts.

And finally, this darling quilt was put together by Deb.  I had this ice cream fabric and no idea what to do with it.  Deb took it and turned it into a delightful quilt.  Shannon added the backing and the quilting.  Some little girl will think it is just yummy!

Thanks as always for looking at our quilts.  I'll leave you with this yummy thing.....
