sewing party

We had a sewing party yesterday!
A quilt square making party!
A scrap busting...good time!!!
All we needed were 9" squares of phone book pages.
Lot of scraps...
And some willing workers!
Some Smiling workers!!!
And...
Some Quilt loving workers!!!

We now have LOTS of blocks ready to make some quilts!!!
Graduation is in June...
So....
We have time to make a few more blocks and
then.....
Make some quilts!!!
Yeah!
This was a great group project.
It was so easy to sew those strips onto paper...
Trim the block to 9" square...
Viola!!!
Even the beginners had GREAT success!!!

  2. What a fun party! That's the best way to make these blocks. And they look so great - they'll make up into wonderful quilts. And, that's a lot of scraps!!
