Quilting Bee held

I packed up all the bride blocks and went to Suffolk Community College for two days of marathon sewing. My volunteers were dropping out left and right, so I was pleased to have two wonderful ladies helping me. Roberta and Beth came both days and worked their fingers to the bone!

Roberta is in the green shirt and Beth was our "quality control". Her hand sewing skills are excellent and she gussied up some of our plainer brides with more lace and beading.

Here are my two volunteers (Roberta on the left and Beth on the right) on day two, with one of the blocks ready to go into the quilt:

As you can see, the "Good" side of the quilt is shaping up nicely. I'm going to assemble it this weekend and get a picture online as soon as I can.

We had a few blocks come in, so check out the gallery to see them:

I put Nancy's block in with the extra wedding dress fabric when it came it, so I just got it online. Sorry Nancy.

This is going to be a beautiful quilt!
