We had our first charity quilting sew-a-thon day last Sunday. Eight of us gathered at Lois and Lisa’s house for an afternoon of sewing fun.
Three of the ladies had never sewn before. For one reason or another, they have a strong desire to learn and support Victoria’s Quilts with their efforts. They each finished piecing and quilting a nine-patch. Next month they’ll add the binding and label to complete their first finished project. They did a great job picking colours, piecing, marking, and quilting.
Frances sewed 14 nine patches, to make a Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt. I cut and squared up all the blocks (forgot to take a photo), so this quilt can be put together the next time we meet.
See the pretty nine patches.
We need to come up with a name for our little group. I suggested Go, Sew Girls (after someone else said the Go, Go Girls). My suggestion wasn’t met with much enthusiasm, so we’re open to ideas. Please post in the comments!
