December 2016 Stitch-In

Roxana F.: Boro Crazy Quilt style

We just had the last Stitch-In of 2016. It was great to get together for stitching and sharing.

Roxana brought in a piece that started with some of her Boro and Beyond workshop samplers. I think it's still going to be a purse...but has now morphed into a Crazy Quilt style. So fun! During the Stitch-In, Roxana worked on a set of fabric cuffs that she'd stenciled and cut (reverse applique).

Helen brought in a piece that she's been stitching off and on (sort of a meditation cloth).

Helen B.: Meditation cloth

She also sent along a photo of her finished hanging.

Susan continues to add to her collection of black and white and red squares (love that spot of red from the pin!).

Barbara brought in some of her little house patterns and almost completed one during the Stitch-In.

She sent along some photos of the little village she's created of cloth houses.

She also shocked us with her fearlessness.... Remember this piece?

Barbara C.: India piece.

Well, Barbara cut it apart to make the clothing for a series of little dolls!

Cheryl completed her safety pin piece started in the previous Stitch-In.

I forgot to bring an envelope for the cash we bring to rent the room. So I decided to stitch one using an upholstery fabric swatch donated by Helen. That was actually fun!

It was a great year of Stitch-Ins! Looking forward to more in 2017.
