Packing up

Today is my first Sew Day with my new local guild, the Tampa Modern Quilt Guild. It looks like we're going to have a pretty good turnout today, which is really exciting...and nerve-wracking! I'm packing up my machine, along with a zillion half-square triangles and coordinating squares for my Patchwork Wheel scrap quilt to work on today, and I'm really looking forward to spending the day sewing.

It's been a really great week. I'm so glad to see how excited people have been about the great tutorials shared this week as a part of the Christmas in July festivities! In case you missed one, here's a recap of this week's tutorials:

Mariner Star pillow - full frontal

Christmas in July tree skirt

It's been a great week, and there's still four more great handmade holiday tutorials coming your way next week from Melissa of Happy Quilting, Aneela of ComfortStitching, Amy of Diary of a Quilter, and Felicity of Felicity Quilts.

Have a great weekend!


  1. All the projects are just beautiful! Plenty of things to keep me occupied.

  2. Hope you have a great meeting and have loads of fun :o)

  3. Hope you have a fun day!

    Thanks for the project recap =D

  4. I'm sure you had a great sew day! Thanks for organizing Christmas in July, I've enjoyed the tutorials and am looking forward to next week!

  5. Hope you had a great sew day with your new modern quilt guild ~ I go to the one I belong to and always get lots done and have a great time!
    Loving Christmas in July ~ really great tutorials!

  6. I hope your sewing day went well! I love sew-ins! They're not always the most productive sewing time though - I tend to talk too much and not sew enough!


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a mood teen boy and a chatty six-year-old girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
