Last night was Sew-In night for the VMQG. This is the first one I have been to in a long time, and the first at our new location. Its a bit of a drive from my place, ut well worth it. The space is open and they have air conditioning! Woo hoo! Very important when you have irons and machines all running. OUtlets are few and far between however, so we had a power chain running.
I brought a couple projects with me that I haven’t had time to work on at home. This way I could only work on those things! I was able to finish my Watermelon Dragon from Anne’s design.
And I cut out the pieces I need for a log cabin memory quilt. I am making it for my friend’s sister’s grandmother-in-law.
Her favorite colors are Purple and Teal, and its will be a gift for her birthday.
Nothing like a pretty teal monochromatic group of fabrics!
There is also a huge table for basting, and our work spaces are quite large too.
I bring my Janome 6600. My grandma gave me this machine 12 years ago and it runs like a dream still. She bought it the year I was born. Its also really quiet too, which is good for having a conversation with my fellow VMQGers.
We all seem to accomplish a lot at these sew ins. Amazing what some time out of the house can do!
Yesterday also marked the 5 month mark of my participation in Quilt Design a Day, and toda is my 100th post! woo hoo! Quite a few milestones this weekend.
We are off to the beach today, I hope everyone has a great weekend as well!

Sigh – I envy your family free sewing time. Gotta get on it myself! Good job mama
I didn’t know there was air conditioning–I would have gone! Glad you had a good time, and productive as well!
