Little Women -June and July meetings

We had a little bit of show and tell at our June and July Little Women meetings. Seems like summer vacations are interfering with our sewing time. The quilt above is called "Raspberry Swirl" from Jo Morton's Group 11.

Pam made a hot mat with hers, and Carol decided to make hers in Halloween colors.

Transferware, above version is by Pam, the one below is by Karen.

 Transferware, version above by Becky and version below, downsized by Carol.

 I always forget to take a photo of my quilts! I guess that's a post for another day.

Some of us are working on Yankee Doodle. Charlotte's is incredible! The center star is made up of yo-yos that finish at 3/8 inch. She is also hand appliquing her circle/star blocks. Celestia is doing hers the same way.

We had an all-day sewing day scheduled for June 30, but a terrible storm whipped through Richmond and thousands of us--including the quilt shop--lost power. We were all SO disappointed that we had to cancel it. We have another all-day sewing day  scheduled in September over the Labor Day weekend. It's so fun to be away from home and responsibilites for awhile to play with friends and fabric!

This month we are working on our Spool block challenge. It will be due at our August meeting. In September, Autumn Splendor will be featured. It's made with 1.5 inch finished 9-patches. It is stickin' cute!

Stay cool wherever you are, and till next time, keep stitchin'!
