Sew in... Darlene promised sugar, lots of sugar!

She delivered.  Sugar!

Essentials of a successful sew in.  Sugar and lots of coffee.  Darlene organized a great sew in for our guild, the fabulous Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild.  We gathered in a room at the University of the Fraser Valley.  Lots of people were busy quilting and I was making my Lucky Stars BOM.  grrr  paper piecing  grrr.  But I got 'er done and a lot of other things done too.  

I did take a few pictures-just a sampling... let's see.  Here is Laura with a football themed bunting baby quilt.  You have to look at her clever free motion quilting.  Lots of footballs and football terms.  Cute!!!!

Then Colleen was cranking out pillow tops made from a couple of Moda Candy packs with some solids and some linen.  Here is one of them. Look at all the HSTs!  Nice!

Barb was quilting this Tula Pink love quilt.  She backed it with minky and she experienced some frustration.  And I learned a new term for the balled up thread that you get on the back of the quilt when things go wrong.    Bobbin barf.  Love that.  So there.  A wonderful day with wonderful quilty people.
