Last Tuesday Sew-in for awhile....

 Yesterday was the last Tuesday sew-in for awhile for me since I go back to work at school next Tuesday. I put the borders on the Twister quilt and finished the Mini Twister as well. I ended up using some of those leftover 2" pieces in the border.  I forgot to take a pic of the Twister with borders, but will soon.
 Diana has been finishing the quilts she was working on during the retreat....

 Laura has been working on these blocks all along, she finished the borders yesterday.
 Dianne is making a costume for a friend, so that is what she worked on.
 Brenda is back to quilting after 3 months off. She had a major injury to her wrist in a car accident and is just now able to sew again.
 Kim finished the last blocks for her Sampler #13 quilt, here is the layout.
It was a great day and I am going to miss these sewing days in the weeks to come.

Jean - I LOVE how you did the border on the twister quilt. That is a great idea. Laura's quilt came out so pretty. Those fabrics are so rich. It look awesome. Funny how Brenda and Kim were holding up the same block. Kim's quilt is looking good. It is such a good feeling to have the blocks done - then you just have to assembly and sew!

Thanks for a great summer of UFO's. I got a lot done. I needed to get away from home to do them. Too much to do here. Hopefully next summer looks to be just as productive!

the mini twister is so cute!

I like the spool blocks as the alternates in the sampler quilt.
