Wonky Star Design Wall

Sunday was a QOV Sew Day for us and we had the University of Northern Colorado Softball team show up!! yay!! it is always such fun to have them join us in our efforts. I believe this is the 3rd year in a row!

They spent the day working on Wonky Star Blocks - we had a literal Chain Gang going on!
One of the girls broke her tibia and had to have surgery, so we sat her at the ironing table - and she became a master. The rest worked in pairs and stitched, and ironed and trimmed - and we might have had a little talking going on (just a little though)

Here they are in process

and here is the whole group in front of their progress
They made a LOT of blocks! 

There were 17 softball players
and 7 of them were new to our sew days
It was SEW much fun!!
Thanks girls for your support - see you at the Softball fields!

Looks like a fun group of girls. Looks like they did a great job with the Wonky Stars.

It gets me all teared up to see the girls do this. How do you interest them in coming and giving it a try? I would love to do something like this. I have a lot of sewing machines that could be used. You must have an organizing strategy. Bravo!
