Dallas Modern Quilt Guild

saturday {sew}ing

Today was the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild’s last Saturday Sew of the year. We had a small group since most people are traveling, shopping, and just generally busy with Christmas activities this time of year but it was a fun day. I am so grateful to all of the ladies that came – they helped me baste two quilts!

That’s a lot of safety pins….

These are two more items that I can now cross off my WIP list.

I’ve heard from a few others who are participating in the challenge so I know you all are getting some sewing done. Having this challenge has really helped me stay focused (and avoid the distractions of reality TV shows). Just under two weeks left of 2010 so we’re more than halfway through. I’ve got lots of goodies I’m thinking about for the challenge winner. I’ll post some over the next week to keep you motivated. :)

[On a side note, many people have contacted me about the Quilting Economics graphic I posted recently. I am looking into making prints since there was so much interest. (thank you! I’m so flattered and pleased that you all enjoyed it so much) I’ll share details on how to get your own copy after the holidays.]
