The Threads That Bind Community Sewing Group met today.
This is a group that a few of the ladies from the church organized
and anyone in the community is welcome to come sew with us.
We meet the 4th Monday of the month with the goal of making some quilts to give to various organizations within the community. We are still in the quilt construction stage and have only a few finished quilts at the present time.
Three ladies came today. We accomplished a few things.
I machine quilted a baby quilt and a toddler quilt that we sewed last month.
I used my walking foot and stitched 1/4" away from the seams and then went diagonally on the baby quilt.
I still have to quilt diagonally on the toddler quilt.
Diane and Charity worked on cutting and sewing 8-1/2" blocks from 5 fabrics to make a large disappearing 9 patch quilt.
I finished a few of the blocks at home and laid them out on the floor, just to see.
This quilt will be about 66" square when completed.
Do you make quilts for causes?
Have you found a great pattern that is easy for most people to sew?
