Family Sewing Day...2016

We like to have a sewing day over the holidays while my sister Nancy is visiting from Canada. She and Deb are social sewers and only sew with us. Deb finished her jelly roll race quilt that she started last winter this year when we met by making and sewing on the binding. She is so excited to have it finished!
 Nancy was working hard to finish the quilt she only works on during her visits here...she began it in Jan. 2011. She came to one of my sampler clubs the night after she got in so she could get started and worked all day on sewing day. She finished it a few days before she left. It's gorgeous!
Dec. sewing day
 She left it here so I'm going to take it to be quilted and she will finish by binding it next year.

 Sharon worked on a Summit Pack. She had it all cut out before she came and got most of it finished before she left.
She finished it a few days later and made another one! I love them both!

 Wendy did some beading projects and Mom visited. She recently finished her sewing day quilt from a few years ago and just got it back from the quilter. She will be binding it soon!
I worked on the hanging sleeve for my Quilters Quilt the Blues Challenge quilt and helped the others. My challenge quilt was chosen as a finalist, so I've sent it off to be judged. Hope to hear back soon!

 Dad was around for moral support and opinions...can't do it without him! My nieces had to work, so weren't able to join time!

I've been trying to get caught up and want to start writing the patterns for the new Sampler, Optical Illusions.

Enjoy! No one else in my family sews. At least they do appreciate the things that I make them. If my son and daughter in law ever move back down to the lower 48 states, maybe I'll be able to sew with them.
