Charity Sew In this Wednesday!

Our first Charity Sew In went really well! We got 3 quilt tops completed and 2 almost done!  And here it is, time for another round.

Charity Sew In
Wednesday October 8
10AM to 4 PM and 6PM to 9 PM

This time we are going to be working on Stepping Up.  Since we all tend to have more 'girly' fabric, I thought we could try to make a quilt for a boy.

Stepping Up

I know the graphic I showed isn't for a boy, but where the colored squares are shown will be in 'boy' like fabric. If you have a FQ that would be appropriate for boy, such as sports, animals or plaids, please bring it.  I will cut up the sashing strips (2 ½" strips).  The squares are cut 6 ½", so if you have scraps laying around that would be suitable for a boy and they measure at least 6 ½", you can bring them as well. 

I do have a few kits leftover from the last sew in, so if anyone is sew inclined to work on those, that would be great as well. 

We were so busy sewing that I forgot to take any good pictures of us in action! Which is a good thing I guess! :)  I will try harder to take at least a few pictures.  I thought I would only post the pictures of the finished quilts, but maybe I will show what we got done, no matter what level of completion we reached. 

If you know of anyone that would like to help in any way, please invite them to join us. We can always use runners and people to iron. 

As always, fabric donations are always appreciated. BUT we need 100% cotton fabric. And NO Holiday fabrics or baby fabrics. These kids are ages 5 to 15. Thank you so much for helping. 

I hope to see many of you here on Wednesday!
