Sewcial Day

A sewcial day always helps the mood of the week.  Sunday was a beautiful day at the library with friends.  

Sharon, Judy, and Sandy were busy concentrating on cutting out a Spicy Spiral table topper.
 Ruth was working on binding, while Barb knitted and Judy cut out a new project.
 Char spent the whole day trimming stray threads from her quilts so she could get ready to quilt them

Nancy, well she worked on multiple things.  She sews FAST!  She arranged the pieces for a twister tree.  It is the cutest pattern designed by Rose Pohlar of Pohlar Fabrics.  She managed to get her squares sewn together and several other things too.

Tina worked on cutting out her project for the Shipse retreat, and Angie work on cutting out a couple of projects also.

For me, I cut out the twister blocks of my large twister quilt.  This is part of the quilt hanging on the design wall.  When the quilt was in squares, I thought it looked sort of like a team spirit quilt.  Now that I have the blocks cut again, I like it better.

I also put the borders on these 4 table runners so they are ready to be cut with the twister tool.

I think I will be ready for the Shipshe retreat later this month.

That's a lovely, graphic twister quilt.

Lots of wonderful quilts being worked on by, but really your twister is stunning, lots of motion in that one.

Can't wait to see what your twister table runners turnout like. I just love the twisters. See you in Shipshewana in a couple weeks.

The twister looks so good. I have the template but haven't even taken it out of the wrapping. :-( Thanks for reminding me, I am putting it on my "to do" list right now.
