Days for girls sew day…July 6, 2016

Days for girls sew day with the Langdon Alberta team. Maureen and Carol are coleaders. Maureen is on the right. Carol took the photo. Fenna is cutting corners before serging the liners.  We held a sew day on July 6.  Had a great time
Carol is doing a demo here of how to doodles a design onto the bag before sewing it. I used some quilting templates to stencil a pattern onto the material first and then just started to doodle.

Here is some of the stuff that we finished during our sew day. Some items were made at home
and turned into group that day.

Finished design, now ready to be made into a bag and draw string added.

flying geese mini quilt

Mini quilt I made for our quilt show.  The centre triangle are licra(swim suit material) All paper pieced.
I had fun getting the strips done.
This is a pot holder that I made a while ago.  I haven't been able to post for a bit as there was no pencil on the dashboard page. For some reason it is back today. Yea!!!!
  Hard to believe that it is the beginning of June already.

dog/cat pillows



8 pillows done and off to the Humane Society. A friend gave me a practice free motion quilt piece. That is the lime green. I cut it into 4 pillow tops. The 4 pillows in the bags are bigger then the ones shown as 2 pillows each.  I took photos of them earlier but not sure where they are at the moment.

Thurs. March 24, 2016….block lotto violets



Here are 3 of the 4 blocks I made in March for the March block lotto. This is run online. I started participating in Sept. 2015.  Have had some great blocks but I haven't won yet. I really like this one and I've had a sneak peek at the April block and would love to win that as well.

Just had our first sew day for the Langdon Days for Girls. Went really well. Had 12 attend. We  taught and worked on shields and drawstring bags for this work shop. I realized yesterday that I forgot to take any pictures.  I had a camera with me too. I just didn't think of it during the workshop.
