A new beginning....

 Last month the Sunbonnet Sue Sampler Club finished their last blocks. They started a new sampler last night, but 2 of them brought their Sues to show and tell. The third quilter has her top finished, but forgot to bring it. They did a great job and were excited to start the Garden Window Sampler (you can see it behind Judy in the upper picture).
 Wildflower was their first block and they got those done quickly. Fresh and pretty!
 Marilyn joined this group and she is working on Gathering Around, a medallion style sampler. Her first block is a 24" Bear Paw, so she got it part way finished. She is using a black background for this quilt.
 Two of the three got their second block, Tulip, finished too. These will definitely make pretty gardens! For this sampler they need to make four doubles of blocks...these are two that I used for those doubles on mine.
 I finished the quilting on Scattered Thoughts yesterday. Now to decide on binding fabric and finish it and the pattern. I'm going to the Tuesday Sewing group today for the last time for awhile...it's back to school for me tomorrow. Today I want to get the back ready for the new version of Miss Tess and work on some labels for quilts. I haven't done very well about getting them put on lately.

Enjoy your last day of 'freedom'. School can be fun, too, especially the library.
