Busy Days

It's the last weekend in February and I have some quick pictures from both the Sunshine Club and the Milton Hand Sewing Circle.

First, Bev pinned all her batting to her now newly assembled tee shirt quilt to be sure that it will fit.
Looking good! She's unsure if she wants to quilt or tie it.

Bev and Joyce were clowning around with Joyce's  Mile-A-Minute Log Cabin blocks but they looked great.

Joyce and Sue and Bev were all helping me to sort out the huge bag of donated cotton fabrics that our group was given by a local church lady. Whoohoo!

We all agreed to make some string blocks on fabric foundations for a raffle quilt to benefit the Alton Senior Center. Below, Joyce has the red center strip and a plain 10½" square for starting one string block.

Although I've made a few string quilts, I've given them all away.

Fortunately, my dear neighbor, Ilse, loaned me back the one that I'd given her so I could show it here.

If you'd like to see the instructions for these, here is the link. Link.
Missouri Star Quilt Company also has a helpful video for them. Link.

Later that day, I snapped a few photos at the Hand Sewing Circle at the Evergreen Country Primitives Quilt Shop, where Camille is always our gracious hostess.

Dawn was able to hold up her gorgeous Lucy Boston block for me.

It  was a very full day and very happy!

Happy quilting!

Love reading about your groups activities--hopefully one day I will find one of my own and can be equally involved and productive. Lucy Boston block is beautiful

The string blocks are a great group project! I love your string quilt, too.

Never a dull moment, it seems. You are a very lucky lady to have so many sewing groups nearby. I know they appreciate you!
