I’ve been hard at work paper piecing the pieces that go into making the Geometric Star block from the book, Vintage Quilt Revival. I’ve made a few individual blocks from the book, but I’ve yet to make an entire quilt. So far, I’ve got one complete block, and I have the pieces ready to put together for another four. (So, I’m really not even going to mention that I initially stitched this block together all kinds of wrong. If you follow me on instagram, you know this.)
The real fun, though, is that I cut these pieces a few Sundays ago at the very first Sew In with the Denver Metro Modern Quilt Guild! This guild meets on a weekday at a location that is on my way home from work, so it is super convenient for me to attend. I’m for sure still part of the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild – there are a few of us that are part of both – and it is nice to meet even more quilters like me.
So, Sunday morning I
packed stuffed my Sewing Circle Tote and headed northwest.
I shared a table with my (new) friend Erica and my friend Heather.
And by noon, all I had accomplished was one single block (May Sugar Block). I spent most of my morning walking around chatting with folks and seeing what everyone else was working on.
I was able to at least cut the pieces for the quilt I’m working on now. So it was good to at least show some tangible progress for a 6 hour sew in, just not as much as I had hoped!
