Our Sew Day and MORE QOV's and Ohio Stars!!

 My Sew group meets about every Month and we work on some QOV project. We have so many amazing quilters in our group that someone agrees to teach us a new block or a new idea. It is a lot of fun.

February was my month - so I cut 60 of the QOV Ohio Star blocks for everyone to stitch on. 

And we also had show and Tell. I didn't get photos of all the quilts turned in - but Charlene took a few for me to share.

Liz - She made her a top with Ohio stars  and I think it is pretty cool:

And Deb Finished her Stars Like Spaghetti!!   Her Mom was one of the Original QOV'ers with me, and she passed away a few years ago. Deb inherited her fabrics and she said she made this from all of her moms stash .. Too cool!!

We stitched 35 of the 60 blocks I had cut because WE HAD A PRESENTATION!!
and that is just way cooler than sitting and stitching haha!!

We had Three Marine, 2 Army and 1 Navy.  It was an awesome day!!!

In my mind I was going to keep track of the Numbers of Quilts we have awarded this year - but you all know that I will fail... however this - brings us to 29 and 3 shared,so can I just say 32?  and not have to break it out? 

PS - you will notice that the clues for  STARS LIKE SPAGHETTI are no longer accessible. It is being compiled into one pattern and IS NOW AVAILABLE

The hourglass blocks really add to those Ohio Stars, it's a fun setting. Sounds like you got to do a bit of everything on this sew day. How fun!

Great Mystery quilt finish by your friend!!! What a lovely presentation!

What a great day you had. I hope you had a cutting system to make your 60 star parts easier to cut out! I like the way Liz mixed up her stars with the quarter squares block. (Shoot, I'm sure there is a name for them but I sure can't draw it from my brain this AM.

Wonderful post! I love the Ohio Stars with those big Hourglass blocks. And of course your Stars Like Spaghetti quilt design is a stunner.

Getting over half of the prepared blocks sewn and a presentation sounds like a really awesome day!

What a great photo, I love the one with the quilts on their backs! Your quilts are kind of saying "I've got your back", and that is wonderful. They are really pretty quilts.

Great photo of the quilts and the recipients, Alycia. QOV quilts are so special. Thanks for sharing with us on Monday Musings.
