February Sew Day Recap

February's Sew Day was held Saturday, February 26 at the Dr. Phillips branch of the Orange County Public Library. One Saturday a month we meet together for a full day of fun. Everyone enjoys sewing together and there are lots of tips, tricks, and laughter shared throughout the day.

Mary Ann was hard at work on her Hoffman Challenge quilt. It's going to be a stunner. Margaret and Rene' are in the background concentrating on their projects.

We had eight members sewing, chatting, and eating Saturday. We bring everything but the kitchen sink, but only because there's a kitchen sink already there!

Julie has channeled her inner geek and is making a Super Mario quilt for a colleague. It was fun to see her put the design together in our big library room. It's the perfect room for big projects.

The patriotic string blocks everyone made from our string goody bags are put on the "design floor" for layout. Don't they look great? Hope has the honor of putting the top together. I'm sure the guild will find a good home for this quilt.

Hope and Heather are having fun with their pretty fabrics. Sew Day was relaxing and fun. If you haven't had the chance to join us, please do. The next Sew Day will be Saturday, March 19 from 10 am to 4:45 pm. If you need an excuse to get out of the house, that day is National Quilting Day! See you there!
