Weekly Round Up for 3/23/14!

This week Debbie saw her Spin Cycle Quilt on Martha Steward's website recently! Super fun!

The quilt was featured because it is in Rachel May's book Quilting with a Modern Slant!

Pam is sending off her adorable Eat. Sleep. Play. Repeat. baby quilt to its new home. Love the colors, love the quilting!


Rossie, fresh from Camp Stitchalot, has posted the bags she made there:


The left one is the Camp Stitchalot bag (pattern by Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness), the right one is a tackle bag (pattern by Kristen Link of Sew Mama Sew). She also discusses a few other things she was working on there, and what makes a good project to take on a retreat.

Jenna has made a springy green Josephine blouse (pattern by Rae Hoekstra of Made-By-Rae):

Lovely!

Hope everyone can make the meeting on Wednesday!
