Hug Club

The 2nd Tuesday of every month, a group of us meet at our LQS, O'Susannah's, in Watkins Glen, NY to sew quilts for charity.  We've made a lot of quilts for individuals over the past 3 years- all from scraps from the shop.  Sue provides the fabric and has the top quilted and bound and we do all the planning and sewing.

This time, however, we're making a special batik quilt called Tropical Turnover by Edyta Sitar.  Sue is going to have it raffled off with the proceeds to go to Habitat for Humanity.  We started this quilt in September, worked on it this month, and should be sewing the top together in November.  We can't wait to see how it turns out.  Sue had a trunk show of Edyta's quilts in the shop, and they were all beautiful.  Here's a picture of the pattern

and some more of our little group.

 Here are some of the quilts we;ve made in the past:

And Judy brought her Flurry quilt for us to see.  She made it all from FQ's and scraps she already had and quilted it on her personal sewing machine.  Isn't it beautiful?

Hopefully after next month's sewing, I'll have a new completed top for you to see.

Until next time,
Happy quilting from Sharon, Katie, and Patsy Cline
