WIP Sunday: Super Sew Day Extravaganza

Yesterday my quiltie gal pals and I had a great day filled with sewing, laughter, and treats! We worked away at various projects, took breaks to eat tasty snacks, and laughed a lot.
WIP: Super Sew Day Extravaganza
I took this shot early in the day. Betty's quilt is the red, black, and white one. She was working on binding. I love it! Janice made the one in the middle. It is a variation on the one I made for my sister. Love that applique. She was also binding. My "slice and dice" is on the end. I managed to get it trimmed and the binding sewn on so it is ready for hand stitching!Block #1 Sashed!
I also figured out the sashing for the embroidered blocks for Grama's quilt! Ignore the fact that it needs pressed after being stuffed in my bag. I'll sash the other 3 finished blocks when I get a chance!
We also exchanged Birthday gifts since we didn't have a chance to celebrate our Birthdays back in June and July. I made super huge totes for everyone! They will be great to take along on our shop hop adventures this year!
All 5 laid out on my table! Kona cotton and a polka dot Kauffman print.
Who You Calling A Fat Quarter
Four of the five bags say "who you calling a fat quarter?" I just thought it was funny! I printed it out on Kona from my printer in a fun font and heat set it. I used a decorative stitch on my new machine to put it on.
Cross Sitchers Are X-Rated
One friend is a wonderful cross stitcher so I had to change up her tote a bit and found this great saying! These totes are so big I fit 2 couch pillows in them to take the photo!
It was a wonderful day and I got lots done, including starting on another quilt! I had so much fabric left over from that "slice and dice" I'm making a wonderful jelly roll pattern I bought while on vacation!
Happy Sunday everyone!
