Guests in the Sewing Room

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of having a bunch of people here to quilt and sew. I took some pictures and I'll let them speak for themselves. We had a blast and I think most everyone felt good about what they accomplished.

Julie, Paula, Margaret and Jerry
Work, work, work

 
Jerry, Connie and Ann
More work!
 
Paula and "Thinking Ann"
I wonder what's on her mind.
 
Paula and her purse
Ann started it and Paula finished it!
 
 
Ann and her purse
This is going to be so cute!


Margaret is multi-tasking with Log Cabin blocks and a tea cup quilt
Wait until you see her blocks. You're going to love them!

 
Julie is sewing her first quilt!
She's beginning a 1600 quilt on steroids. She's using 4 1/2" strips.
 
Connie is squaring up blocks - her favorite part of quilting - NOT!
Just look at that concentration.


Ann must be thirsty!
She always makes me smile, and sometimes drool.

 
Jerry is so excited that he can't work.
Why?

 
Eileen just presented him with his official Milan Quilt Builders membership card
 
He's our first male member.
I think he's up for the challenge.
 
Check back tomorrow for some pictures of actual projects that were being worked on last weekend.
