Sew in with UNC Softball team

The University of Northern Colorado Softball team joined us again to make Quilts of Valor!

THIS is the stack of tops that were completed!!!  

They were quilt designing machines.

I brought a lot of our Block Drive Blocks and said - have at it!
They came up with awesome designs. Its always fun to have new eyes look at the way to layout quilts.

So - warning - this is a picture laden post- but you may see your blocks!!

They broke up into groups, and starting using the desing walls.

Most of them remembered all the sewing they learned at our last session.
We had 6 new quilters on the team - so they had a little more help.

Our Veteran Quilters are so helpful and wonderful - and loved working with the team!

LOVE the smiles and the designs!!!

Even Asst. Coach K got in on the action.
He said this time was even more fun, as he knew what he was doing this time.
*he even choose the SAME machine*

The brought the Grad Assistant along -
so much fun to hang out with - except he said if I wasn't nice he would make me work out ;-( 

Showing off the finished tops

Group Picture!!
A little girl came with her grandma - I am venturing to say
That she is the teams number 1 fan 

More finished tops
Seriously I am loving the designs.

And look - we made the paper ;-)
Front page even.... pays to sew with softball players

Iam linking up with Design wall - even though these aren't really my design walls
The team did an awesome job !!
