September Sew Day

Saturday's sew day was another fun one!

Julie and Rene' discuss layout options for Julie's quilt.

Julie also worked on this beautiful quilt using fabric from her daughter's baby clothes.

Michele always wins the award for most projects worked on during sew day!

Rene', with Kathryn's helpful advice, worked on sewing sashes on her Amy Butler blocks.  Judy, one of our newest members, worked on her beautiful maple leaves, and Ally, our youngest member, made a brief appearance at sew day.
Thanks Kathryn for taking pictures!

Sew Day

Orlando Modern Quilt Guild's next Sew Day is this Saturday, September 18 from 10:00am to 4:45pm at Southwest branch of the Orlando Public Library in Dr. Phillips.  Please RSVP by leaving a comment on this post or sending an email so we will know how many tables to set up. 
Feel free to bring a snack or something to drink, and as always remember your extension cords, power strips, irons and ironing boards.

For anyone that hasn't come out to a meeting before, Sew Day is an event where once a month we bring our sewing machines and all of our sewing goodies and sew together for hours. It's lots of fun. Remember, your first meeting is free so come join us!

Hope to see you all there!
