Wonky Star Quilt Block // Sewing + Friends

100Quilts4Kids_StarBlock_SwimBikeQuilt

If you are local (or even local-ish), I would love to have you join me and my sewing friends (many from the DC Modern Quilt Guild) for a charity sewing day! (100 Quilts for Kids is right around the corner–how are your quilts coming??)

I am hosting a sewing day at the Central Arlington Library on Saturday, September 28, 2013. It is open to everyone, and if you are thinking of joining the DC Modern Quilt Guild, it doesn’t “count” as one of your free guest meetings.

    I just might do that! Have to figure out if I can squeeze it in. :) I lived right across the street from that library for years (years and years and years ago).

    This sounds like a great event. My guild (Gainesville Modern Quilters) did a UFO swap and made quilts for 100 Quilts for Kids. At this week’s meeting we gathered about six quilts to donate to Peaceful Paths, a local resource for women and children. I linked up! Thanks for the inspiration–this was a really great motivator for our guild!
