Sew Night, Yay! And a look at the awesome Quilt Walk Quilt.

Jerilu is making these sun dresses for her granddaughters.  Everyone else is trying to figure out which granddaughters they could make them for.  I think the fabric in this one is Penny Lane.

Another one in progress.

For one of our service projects at the Quilt Walk we are making placemats to be taken into the homes of those recieving Meals on Wheels.  It could really brighten up the meal service.  Lana heard about it last week and got busy and made two of each of these.  Very nice.

Helen brought this one to show us and brought the pattern in case anyone wanted to do these.  She said she has a set of 4 of these.  They look like they would be really fun. 

Shannon has her twister sewn together and tonight she started to cut it out.  She got about three rows cut.

This is another tube quilt Marylou made.  She said it just matches her new couch.

Jerilu made this quilt top from Dana Brooks new line of fabric, She-da.  It is so cute and the fabric is just a little different from what else is out there.  The background is a leopard print.  Way cute. 

Here is a closeup of the fabric.  Jeri said the fabric is selling fast and she is almost out.

Donna and Karen worked on the quilt set up at the center.  I think they made good progress. 
Take a look at Helen's new sewing machine.  It just came today so we all had to take a look at it.  It is a Janome and is all metal.  I didn't sew with it but it was very quiet.  I think she is pretty tickled with it.

Here it is almost completed.  The Quilt Walk Quilt for 2011.  I am sorry the pattern name has left the brain right now but I will get it for you.  I can't wait to see it quilted.   


  1. The Quilt Walk Quilt turned out great! Looks like a wonderful design to use up scraps.

  2. Oh my goodness where to start.
    Those sundresses are so adorable. I have a couple of nieces that would look so cute in them.
    I love the idea behind those placemats. How wonderful.
    And again beautiful quilts.

  3. Awww I miss Lana! Let her know~

    Hugs to you Miss Jan...
