The Wayward Girls

Our Wayward Girls met Saturday and had a really productive day. Pam worked on several projects, including a red/pink/brown pattern called  "Magic Block". The pattern is by Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Then Pam worked on her adorable Halloween quilt, made with Deb Strain's Hall-o-ween charm pack and a few yards of black spidery background fabric. She finished the binding on this darling quilt called "Stack and Wack Turnover". Fabric by Moda. How cute is this!

These red/tan/brown blocks are from the book "Spotlight on Neutrals". The are basically 9-patches that are sewn together and then cut apart, turned, and resewn. The pattern is called "Summer Stitch-In".

Carol worked on making half square triangles and sewing them into Broken Dishes blocks. This will become the Jo Morton Little Women quilt "Pottery Shards".


And I am so excited to have prepped 2 quilts for my longarm quilter. The first one was my Mary Mayhem mystery quilt, a Christmas gift for my granddaughter Hadley. She loves pink, and has a pet Conyer Parrot named Kiwi. That's why the wild pink color, and the colorful birds on her quilt.

The second quilt I prepped for the longarm quilter is my summer Thimbleberries quilt called "Little Garden." IIt will look like this (above) when finished. My fall quilt just needs the final borders put on, and it can go to the quilter too!

A few more works in progress. Pam worked on her Pumpkin quilt and that's mine on the design wall with hers. The colorful quilt below it is "Bacon and Eggs" in progress for an upcoming Little Women meeting. Every now and then I like to do something totally out of the box! This quilt uses 1.5 inch squares to make the 9-patches, so I used a Honey Bun strip from Mary Engelbreit called "Basket of Flowers."

We also introduced Carol to Pandora Radio. Check it out if you haven't already! And another great day of sewing was had with the Wayward Girls!

Till next time, Keep Stitchin!
