Stitchin' and a Laughin'

Hi Everyone!  Last Thursday the Sew'n Sews got together for another evening of fun and quilting.  Our chosen block for March was the Ohio Star.  We also discussed our mini-quilting retreat coming up in July where we will put all our blocks together and quilt them.  We are even going to give hand quilting a try, so it will truly be an old-fashioned quilt bee for us this summer.  Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we'll have nice sunny weather (and no snow, which has happened...seriously!).

Enjoy!

Trying to hide from the camera in the kitchen...gotch'a!
 
I'm busy supervising here and having a nice cuppa.  :-)
 
Sue's the picture of concentration.

Tah - dah!  Sue chose some lovely Christmas fabrics with an old-fashioned feel to them - beautiful!

Michelle's block has a more contemporary feel to it.
 
A closer look at Michelle's block.  Aren't these fabrics yummy?  I think we all wanted to take some of this fabric home with us.

Yvonne's pride in her block shines through.  Love this block, it's too cute!

A closer look at the whimsical fabric she chose.
 
Here's Marilyn with her block, another beauty.  Some day I will actually get a photo of her looking at the camera!!

  1. Just a question: What are the plans for the blocks?
