Sew into Spring with the ......

When: Saturday February 27th 2010....
RSVP: at Kelly's ...... YOU MUST COMMENT ON her Thursday February 25th POST WITH THE LINK TO YOUR POST FOR THE SEWING PARTY BY FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26TH AT 9:00 P.M. CST. If you haven't posted a comment there with your link by 9, then you'll miss out!

Both Kelly and I will post all the links of the participants in the Spring  Sewing Party so we can easily connect to see everyone's progress and leave supporting comments.
Oh sew much fun...... can't wait to see you all at the party.

I have been a little delinguent this week in my blogging..... there are just not enough hours in the day or evening......but there is always time for a little sewing...
As you have read before, Kelly and I are sewing together by connecting on Skype ...  this is the project I have been working on and I call it my Skype project!

The pattern is "Gatherings' by Jan Patek and the fabric is "Blessings". As you can see the blocks are all appliqué allowing me  to talk and giggle with Kelly while I do my hand work. 
Number 1 block............ 
Number 2......

We have a lot of fun and I look forward to our sewing retreats on Skype. 
I am also looking forward to our sewing party...Now I'm off to decide on the project I am going to make on Saturday.......


  1. I'll definitely be joining you, Kelly and all the Charming Girls and Boys next Saturday. Fun, fun, fun!

    Oh, your Gatherings blocks are beautiful, Joan. I need to take a picture of my kit to share with you. Could be a future project.

  2. Your blocks are beautiful! See you next Saturday!

  3. I'll be joining you too. Lovely blocks!

  4. Look at those pretty blocks. They look so tough! Glad you girls are having such a good time.

  5. Joan that is so beautiful - how fun to sew together with Skype!!!!!

  6. I love your project. I'm going thru my list of UFOs to see what I can come up with. I'm such a slow poke, but it is fun to quilt with you guys!


  7. Oh, Joan, I HEART this block.....ALOT! It's wonderful

  8. Beautiful blocks! I can't wait to see the finished quilt. I won't be able to join the party because I'm going to a Quilt Retreat. But I'll be quilting with you all in spirit!

  9. What a beautiful star quilt. I'm really hope I will be able to join you Saturday.

  10. I so enjoy our Skyping parties, Joan -- even though I get a lot more laughing and talking done than sewing LOL! And, you know I love the quilt you're working on -- it's just gorgeous! Can't wait to sew with everyone on Saturday!

  11. Great fun you two are having (Kelly and Joan). Skype is a great way to really keep in touch from a very long distance!!
    Joan the quilt you have as your heading is just beautiful...never noticed it before.
    Sorry I won't be able to participate in the Sewing Party Saturday, maybe next time.
    Well, I just finished posting my 'finishes' on my blog...gotta find the right 'post' to 'post' it on....lol

  12. I can FINALLY tell you that I'll be joining you Saturday. We have a breakfast commitment to the high school baseball team,,,fund rally...and then I'll be home.

    I haven't seen the post you're talking about so I'm posting here that I'll be participating.

    Have a good day, Joan.

  13. These blocks are wonderful - can't wait to see the finished project..can't wait for the party Saturday - this will inspire me to get up early to clean the house - then I can sew!!! YEAAAA
