… a productive sew-in

smqg

last saturday i spent a productive afternoon at a seattle modern quilt guild sew-in. there were only a handful of us there (where was everyone?) but it was still lovely and there were some fantastic projects being worked on.

joan was working on binding, too, so i pulled up a chair next to her with my own handwork.

Finishing up the binding!

i got about half of the binding done at the sew-in and finished up the rest during a movie and an episode of mad men over the rest of the weekend. (speaking of mad men… gah!!!) anywho, the quilt is now finished and i'm waiting around for some actual sunlight to take a photo. but seeing as how this is seattle, that could be weeks from now. for serious.

  2. I know taking a photo with bad light is frustrating. I'm curious what your quilt will look like. Makes me wish for a retro flowers quilt, too.

  4. Looks stunning, I have such admiration for quilt makers. There was a brilliant quilt exhibition at V&A few years ago and I have been fascinated by them ever since.
