MMQG May Sew-In Day

Quilty activity in this corner of the room.

Once again, a successful Sew-In Day, and a wonderful time was had by all!   Ten amazing quilters, all working on their own  projects.  Some projects were very new and some not so new UFOs.  Lots was accomplished and everyone enjoyed being together, doing what we collectively love to do.

Betsy was rockin' the scraps!

Who's that peeking at you?   You will see at the end of this post

Jenn's Sochi Diamonds is all quilted up and ready for binding. 

Jeanette machine quilted this sweet quilt and has the binding ready to go on.  Lots accomplished today.

Linda is putting the finishing touches on her entry to the MQG Michael Miller Challenge

Amanda's pile of gorgeous strips

Amanda's machine.  A beauty!

Anja's pretty block.  Very cool technique - sewn on a foundation

Karen's "snowball piecing" technique.  Very tiny and very interesting!

Adrienne's strippy modern quilt all finished and ready to use.  Also, the pillow that Linda made for Adrienne from scraps. You can read about Adrienne's pillow here

Karen's amazing applique quilt top.  tiny, tiny bias strips and some piecing as well.  Just gorgeous!

Linda was working on her Christmas quilt. 

It's Bill Cosby!   This quilt is made by Aimee of Candy Coated Quilts for entry in the Modern Quilt Guild's Michael Miller Challenge.  Isn't it fabulous!  Can't wait to see it all quilted up!  Way to go, Aimee!

Can't wait for next month's Sew-In Day.


  1. I continue to be like a great time yet again! Your guild has certainly established itself very quickly. Way to go! You provide great coverage, Adrienne - I love checking out your posts to see what you all have been up to.

  2. I wish I could have been there for the sew-in. This is an amazingly talented group of ladies and I still can't believe I'm lucky enough to join.
