"Sew you think you can Sew" weekend work shots

So my main priorities this sewing weekend were to finish two pennant flag quilts for my kids' school auction. Each kid in their classes signed a piece of fabric in a triangle shape that they brought from home. (template was provided)
I had seen a wonderful pennant quilt on the Modern Quilt Guild website a few weeks ago and decided that this was my contribution to the school auction. So this weekend, both of those quilts were started and finished. (yay!)
I also did some other unglamorous work too - basting and quilting the purple speed-pieced quilt we made from scraps at the March LAMQG weekend sew (there will be another in the same color scheme)... Making this yellow quilt back for another project and attaching binding to my red/brown tumbler quilt.

There was other work done too, but these were the beauty shots I was able to take
If I ever get to go back to this lakehouse, I'm bringing more quilts just to take pics. I mean, can you believe the scenery?

Sewing weekend

My dear friend Tifanie invited me to come to her lakehouse in Lake Las Vegas for the weekend. We collected a couple of old and new friends and assembled a tiny sewing crew to join us in our adventure.
We set up shop in the house on the lake, basting in the courtyard, laughing till we cried at mealtimes and generally having an incredibly fun time.
I feel so lucky and happy to have been able to get away and have this weekend and I absolutely adore the friends that were there with us.
Next post ~ the fun projects... (my iPhone only lets me attach 5 pics at a time).
