More from sew night....

I took this quilt from about 3 years ago to quilt night because I am looking for fabric to match the pieces in this.  Everyone is going to look in their stash.  I am gong to do this same pattern but Lana has an accucut with the tumbler die on it so I will use that and cut them a little bigger.  I made this quilt just out of some scraps and although I thought the colors were great the girls said it was kind of "old ladyish."  Meaning it was more my style than theirs.  I had at  about the same time made a very pink girly girl quilt for my toddler granddaughter.  I pulled the quilts out to show her the pink one and she went right to this one and would not even look at the pink one.  Needless to say this is her quilt.  I had to go borrow it from her to take to sew night, with the promise to have it back before bed time.  Don't you love it when that happens.

Claudia made one of her granddaughters this dress like Jeri's from last time.  I love it in the pink lemonade line. Look at those gigantic buttons. To cute.

She also made this modern quilt.  She said you start with a block but not a pattern and just keep adding to it.  I think is is great.  She is appliqueing on the yellow flowers.

Another Claudia quilt made with charm packs.  I am liking this and thinking I should probably do one of these soon. 

Another twister from Lavee.  Sorry for the blurr. 

And another one from LaVee.  I think her favorite part is the back. 

What grandma wouldn't?

She made this baby quilt.  The 3 D bow ties really make it stand out.  This reminds me.  There is  a whole box full of bow tie blocks from long ago and far away somewhere in my closet. Maybe it is time for them to see the light of day.

Jeri brought some of her new fabric to see if it I could use it with the fabric I  have.  What do you think?  The line is called Daydreams by Riley Blake.  I think for sure I need the one is the middle. 
There is still more to come.  We enjoyed it so much because it had been so long since we had been to "sew night." 


  1. What fun fabric in the last pic. Love the colors!

  2. I love that fabric you chose.
    That little girls dress is adorable.
    That slider I made for my mini is 3x3 1/2.
