After missing the last three dates of my sew group due to illness and being out of town, yesterday was just what the Doctor ordered. I really enjoy our group, we meet every other Monday at a local church and sew for about 5 hours. The name of the group is called the Quilting Queens, there are all different levels of quilters in this group but there isn’t one person who isn’t willing to help out or offer a suggestion. Just a fun group of ladies who leave the drama at the door and truly look out for each other. Yesterday I tried to take some pictures of the group, they might be mad at me for not warning them but I wanted it to be natural.
Now we were missing about 10 ladies yesterday but that’s the beauty of our group, come when you can. Life is busy, we get that, no pressure here! We had quite a few show and tells, one of my favorite parts of the day. I always get inspired by the beautiful work this group does. Charyl shared her two Laura Heine projects, I just love the grey background on her cactus quilt. The third quilt she made for the Quilts of Valor. Next is Robin, yes she is the over achiever of the group. Robin made all three of these quilt for Quilts of Valor. On the left is Phyllis’s quilt. She made this for a group similar to Quilt of Valor but these quilts go to women who have served in military and were abused. Such an amazing cause. On the right is Charlene, she was working on all the tiny embroidery details for her Bee Happy Quilt. Charlene is an amazing Long Arm Quilter, I can’t wait to see the custom work she will do on this one! The other Ladies were all busy doing hand work, hopefully they will share those projects at our next sew day. My table was the Fran table, can you believe there is another quilter in our group called Fran! We were both sewing away on projects. Charyl brought her AccuQuilt Go Cutter and was cutting out her next project. Judy brought Baby her white Featherweight machine. Judy just started collecting Featherweights and shared a lot of useful information with the group. If you don’t belong to a sew group I highly recommend finding one. It really is the best medicine and really cheap therapy.
