What a dreary day, so what is there to do but go sew at Delaware Township! And, as always, fun and laughter was had! We got our BOMs for November done. And some of us really took the “Anything Goes” to heart. Look at Mary Bowden’s cute block, 2nd from right. Kerry Gallaga, 2nd from left, brought a Cake Mix packet and learned how to make 8 at a time HSTs. Chris Behme made one of her favorite blocks, Flying Geese and Linda Garzynski really went with Anything Goes!
But after the blocks were down we all turned to our own projects. Kerry was trying to draft a pattern for piecing, and it took way too long before Chris decided to clue her in to the wonders of Electric Quilt 8. After that Kerry was busy drafting that Frog block with the EQ8 program.
Chris will have her computer at the Delaware sew Bee on October 26th if anyone is interested in learning about this great program.
Sally Sandilands and Linda were working on bindings, Sally on machine and Linda by hand. The cute quilt you see over Sally’s shoulder is from a panel she bought at a quilt show. It is adorable, with all kinds of sweet desserts depicted, and a hungry ant partaking of those yummy treats. Our Sally is a champ at finding neat pieces to make into quilts.
Once Mary finished her 1st Anything Goes BOM she was off, sewing with her Singer Featherweight to make an even more Anything Goes block. What a cute machine that Featherweight is!
Now, don’t you wish you had joined in on the fun. The BOM/UFO Bee meets every 2nd Tuesday, usually the day after the general meeting, to learn how to make the new BOM or work on your own projects. As always, we usually end up learning some new tip or trick just by being in the company of so many talented quilters! Come join us! The next sew in is November 9, from 9:30-3:00 at the Delaware Township Office on 131st Street in Fishers.
