my first Sew In

On Monday I enjoyed my very first Sew In.  It was great...a group of ladies from my guild all met up in a large room and we sewed.  Yep, we sewed.  There was a little bit of food, a lot of extension cords and a LOT of sewing and talking.  I'm so happy to know that every 4th Monday of the month I get to meet up with the same ladies to sew!  Who knew it could be so much fun!!

I worked on Karen's quilt for the Across the Pond and Around the Bend round robin.
I added the row of log cabins on the bottom of the quilt in progress...whoever made the trees in the earlier round had an extra and sent it along with the quilt, so I was happy to add that among the row of houses.

Alexander Henry charm quilt

I have been working on this quilt for a long time now. I love Alexander Henry fabrics. I had a crazy idea to use a charm square from every AH print I had for a quilt...when word got out on Flickr, a number of my friends sent some charms to help me is my progress. Im excited to snuggle under this quilt!!

I'm pretty sure I can do three rows of charms if not four!! I have the center sewn together and I think I need to buy a bolt of Alexander Henry Heath in gray!! I love it!!

Take a minute to check out Kelly's post where other quilters are busy using THEIR favorite fabrics!!

Not Your Grandmother's Log cabin class

a long Saturday sewing with Jacquie Gering and a small class of quilters. I love where these blocks are I need to decide what these should need for a wall quilt...more blocks? lots of negative space?
