QOV Sew Day

Monday I was invited to the Perky Piecers Quilt Guild in Troy, MO.  They volunteered to help put together some of the blocks from the QOV Eastern MO Block Drive into tops.  I was thrilled with their offering to help me. I am getting closer to using all the blocks that I received.

We set up and organized by working in teams with sewers and pressers and before too long, there were 6 finished quilts!  I'm thrilled they accomplished so much.   Now I have the task of adding borders and making pillowcases for each of these from my stash and donated fabrics so they can be turned in at one our next QOV quilting days in Feb or March.

Here are my super helpers and their quilt tops.

Helen and her teammates finish the 1st top of the day

Kim and Kevin finished the 2nd one of the day

# 2 from Kim and Kevin's team. They were over achievers!

Ann of Attic Threads & Quilts showing off her beautiful finish 

The quilters are hard at work.  

Susan and teammates show off another finish

There was another top almost finished (needed a row or two added), so I'll post that next time. 

We brought our lunches so we would have more sewing time. I brought dessert in the form of a cake decorated like our original QOV layout to show my appreciation for all the help this group has given me. There was a slight accident with handling the cake, but it was still delicious but no one minded the little crack.  Thank you Perky Piecers!!


  1. Looks like you all had a fun day! And you got so much done. Love the cake - cute!

  2. What a great idea for the cake!! That Kevin, he's a speedster ;-)

  3. Most of my cakes have cracks (or craters). Really cute!

  4. Wow, you got a lot done! Lots of fun quilts. Maybe you'll get some help on the borders and the pillow cases, 6 is a lot to do on your own.

  5. LOL...what a great name for a quilt group, and ya'll sure did put the metal to the pedal! I see that not only are you talented with needle and thread, but in the kitchen as well - what a fun and pretty cake! Impressive!
