Monday my church quilt group met to do the craft sewing project of making an airplane carry-on duffle. We came with our pieces already cut out and worked all day to construct. I shared how to change the pattern a little by adding accent pieces. Here 3 of us are with our finished bags. I love them. At least one thing is finished.
Recently I have been using scraps to make fabric mostly of blue and green. I decided to use the pieces to make a large star quilt. This top is sandwiched and ready for quilting.
Wednesday my church quilt group met. We are working on a second quilt to be donated to a family in Willington, NC affected by the hurricane. You can find out more about the project at
Many of us worked last month to make blocks, as a group we chose a layout and a couple started sewing rows together. The center is pieced. I love the layout.
I will add a simple border and quilt it.
In recent days I added borders to my Rainbow Stars and Bricks so it is a top. I need to piece a backing and it will be ready to sandwich, but that will wait until the others are quilted.
These cooler days will be a great time to sew. Enjoy some time sewing or quilting.
