my first Sew In

On Monday I enjoyed my very first Sew In.  It was great...a group of ladies from my guild all met up in a large room and we sewed.  Yep, we sewed.  There was a little bit of food, a lot of extension cords and a LOT of sewing and talking.  I'm so happy to know that every 4th Monday of the month I get to meet up with the same ladies to sew!  Who knew it could be so much fun!!

I worked on Karen's quilt for the Across the Pond and Around the Bend round robin.
I added the row of log cabins on the bottom of the quilt in progress...whoever made the trees in the earlier round had an extra and sent it along with the quilt, so I was happy to add that among the row of houses.

  1. Fabulous quilt Jenny, great log cabin houses! Isn't it fun having a once a month stitch night with a bunch of women? I've just started one too, I'm thrilled. xo

  3. We have been doing sew-ins with our local Modern Quilt Guild once a month and it is tons of fun!! Ig uess I never thought about how boring it can be just sewing by myself--though I don't always get a lot of sewing done at the sew-in!! LOL...
