A group of women who love to sew

Here’s what I saw during Wednesday evening’s Open Sew at Village Fabric Shop.  This group of young women has so much talent!  They all work full time and they come ready to sew!!  I am so proud of them.  (I’m going to take a picture of them next month.)

IMG_8201Steph is attaching the binding to her original design quilt.  She designed and pieced it and then machine quilted it.  She is self-taught.


Here’s the binding.  I did show her how to miter a binding corner.  🙂  The shop is closed on Wednesday nights so Amy just lets us spread out and take over.

IMG_8207This is Laura’s beautiful quilt, binding attached.  THIRD quilt.  Extremely good workmanship; perfect points.  It’s about 50″ square so it’s larger than it looks in this picture.  She machine quilted this one by outlining the chevrons; exceptional.  It’s going to her goddaughter.

IMG_8208Here’s Mindy’s block from a LQS block of the month; she needed a quick repair.  It’s so pretty!IMG_8211Fowler!  Fowler literally made me teach “Thistle Thicket” last year.  Here’s her hand appliqued top.IMG_8213She picked out the Amy Butler fabric for her border and worked back.  Notice the color placement on that pieced border.  She’s on Theresa DeWalt’s list…IMG_8204She’s also working on the La Passacaglia quilt; she’s in my Saturday workshop at Trailer Stash.IMG_8205I made her prep and stitch stars.  She changed her mind a couple of times.IMG_8203

Jennifer shared a table with her.  She is making the quilt from the cover of Kim Diehl’s Simple Comforts.  Jennifer machine appliqued a Serendipity Sampler with me and since she owned the book, why not?  🙂

This is the book cover.
IMG_8214It was fun to watch her begin to piece this and then completely change her mind about placement.  Jennifer is like that.


It’s going to be pretty wonderful.

IMG_8216Mindy set up her nani iro Liberty baby quilt and finished piecing one of the 16-patch blocks.   I love the light nani iro.

IMG_8217She also attached the binding to her beginner quilt…yes, I did teach her how to quilt last April.  She’s had a productive year!

How’s that for some fabulous show and tell?  I so look forward to this group!  They are special.  See you in May.
