Guild meeting fun w/ Southern Comforters members

Wednesday night's Guild meeting was so fun! We played games, one where we got to talk, and get to know each other a little better, had some snacks, looked at beautiful quilts, and there was even prizes!  What more could a quilter ask for.  I won the name tag drawing!  Yeah me!

This sunflower fabric was our summer fabric challenge.  Make any 12 1/2" unfinished block with this fabric, my block is called "Mothers Favorite" I didn't win the blocks, but it's always fun to see what everyone else pieces.

This is my Step-Mothers Memory quilt top completed.  Now I'm working on the back, also with her clothes, though I am planning to use larger squares just to get it done.  I really want to get it to my Step-Sister soon.  This pattern is from Joan Ford's "Scrap Therapy" program which I found in a magazine from the Publishers of Threads, called "Quilt you Stash!".  There are 10 projects in the magazine all with Joan Ford's program.  I really enjoyed trying her method for scrap cutting, sorting, and piecing.  Her method is different than my "Quilt Hero", Bonnie Hunter's.  Though I was still using the Leader/Ender method so I am always working on another quilt.

I had to put some of Orca Bay on the design wall, wanted to get some idea of what I've been doing all these months with all these little pieces.  I still have a lot to go, but I'm not racing, I'm piecing, right?:=)

Anyway, it's Sunday, watching the last bits of the Olympic's "Rhythmic Gymnastics", and I really need to get to sewing!  Tomorrow brings the Grandsons so I need to spend my time wisely!:=)

Happy Sunday sewing to us all.
