July guild meeting

Thursday evening was the July meeting for my quilt guild. Not only did I turn in the completed quilt for Camp Korey, but I also managed to finish a few blocks.

AR's block exchange block
This block is for the block exchange (read more about how the exchange works here). It was kind of a no brainer... not only was all the fabric provided, but the pieces were actually all cut out and ready to sew!

two Muly block lotto blocks
I also finished and turned in two blocks for this month's block lotto. The theme fabric was the patriotic print with red, white, blue, and gold. I saw it and just thought "stars." I'm really happy with how they came out. Hopefully the lucky winner will enjoy them as well! (Unfortunately, I was not the lucky winner.)

The guild meeting was a lot of fun this month. An amazing quilter, Judy Irish, spoke to us about her work, mostly machine quilting but also design. She brought an amazing array of quilts to share with us. It was a really inspiring event. And it also makes me want to do some more machine quilting. Now if I could only finish a project so I can do that!


  1. What fun! I see you are starting to get things done again :P

  2. If you need to practice your quilting, I have a few projects I could throw your way. I know, only in my dreams.... ;-)

  3. You have been so productive lately!

  4. Great star blocks. Too bad you didn't win.
    Well that lady made it real easy for you to sew the exchange block.

  5. Such really nice work...I can't believe how much you can get accomplished with that little one of yours.
