Last weekend a couple of us Houston Modern Quilt Guild girls got together to help a fellow member churn out a quilt top for an soon upcoming wedding gift. Fi had a great idea for a quilt inspired by Ashley's recent creation.
Which was followed by cutting by Amy (in blurred action!):
Sewing by me and Fi:
And ironing by Liz:
(I caught Liz mid amusing story, which made me love this picture even more!) Saf was also there but somehow missed out on picture time.)
By the end of a couple of hours sewing we made our way half way through the top!
And holy cow is this thing going to be huge!! Its made of 12x12 blocks and its 7 x 9 blocks!
I love it that the guild has helped us all find some kindred quilting spirits in this huge metropolis of ours!
Last weekend I also got a HUGE amount of personal quilting/sewing done but more on that later when I can get some pictures taken. This weekend I plan on doing the same - getting some sewing done, relaxing (as I have to travel for over a week for work next week), and watching all the 9/11 memorials on tv on Sunday.
