Veteran Quilt Sew-in August

School may have started already, but sporting events, weddings, pool parties, vacations and house guests impacted the attendance on this past Saturday’s sew-in.

Ann and I had fun chatting, snacking and sewing. Ann had a goal to finish her quilt top.

For me I am working on scrappy stars. This was my first layout:

I thought it was a bit busy, so I added some neutral blocks to separate them. Veteran Quilts August 2013

I will have fun with the negative spaces for free motion quilting when pieced.

I expect that with the school routine in full force and cooler weather next month there will be more sewists, snacks and chatter.

In the meantime, Dianne, Lucinda, Mary, Kathy, Kim, Marji, Rosetta, Rosie, and Stephanie you were missed. Hope to see you next month.

If  you haven’t already, head on over the the Blog Anniversary post for a chance to win a pattern and charm squares.

Enjoy the Journey, Jackie

      Paula, when I look at negative space I get excited and scared. Love the possibilities, hate the thought of failure. Just go for it!
