Sew-in Saturday

Quilting rectangles

Hooray! More quilting photos! I met some quilty pals from my quilt guild and from the Vancouver guild at the Surrey Central Library.

“You can quilt at the library?”, you may ask. Yes, you can! In a room we rented in the library. They also told us you can eat and drink coffee wherever you want to AND you can even talk at this library. It’s a very civilized place. And the architecture is pretty cool. This is what the ceiling looks like. A feat of engineering.

I brought one project to work on and that is the quilt I will be finishing come hell or high water. I’ve been sewing rectangles into this thing for about 3 or 4 hours by now. I still need to quilt it some more before I bind it and then snuggle up on the couch with it.

Getting there.

Amy let me borrow her walking foot and it made sewing the rectangles a lot easier. I’m pretty sure I’ve got one for my machine, I just don’t know where it is at the moment. But this will not stop me from finishing this thing!

Also at the sew-in, a kid in laundry basket:

Kid in a basket!

Several sewed in our socks, one person brought her slippers, and one person sewed with one sock on:

One shoe!

I also took a few portraits. I’ll work on them tomorrow.

Sewing at the library! Who knew?
