Sewing Circle

Our June Sewing Circle met Saturday and we had a few Star Quilts to show. We're working through Kathleen Tracy's book "Civil War Sewing Circle." Kathy's quilt does not have sashing, but there is one thing we all agree on...we don't like setting blocks with this many seams up against one another.

These two quilts below are the assignment to make this month and to show in July. They are the One Patch Scrap Quilt. It's a very easy project, and I hope a lot of the gals will make it. Pam made her from scraps and fussy cut the star in the center--what a cute idea! Mine is made from a charm patch I had leftover from another project. I changed the border because I didn't want to cut them up! They are from a line called "Java" and have little coffee beans and coffee types printed on them.

The photos below are some miscellaneous show and tell we had. We're also trying to finish up some UFOs this year.

Lori's putting her sampler blocks together as she makes them (below).

Fannie found a darling pattern that puts different 6 inch blocks on the side of this simple house. It turned out great, Fannie!

Pam's working on using some of her large collection of brown fabrics. They decided they wanted to be a quilt today!

This last photo is the 10-minute table runner. It's a fun, easy project several of us have made.

Till next time, keep stitchin!
