January Sew In Wrap Up

We had a great sew-in last Saturday at Bolts to Binding! After not having a December sew-in, we were all ready for some fun, chatting, snacking, and sewing! 
Everyone brings something to work on.
Laura worked on her Madrona Road Challenge quilt.
Lynn worked on her Madrona Road Challenge quilt.
Nicci worked on a block from the Curve It Up Quilt Along.
Nicci's finished block.
Pam brings lots of fun to the group!
Sandy worked on sewing down a binding.

Kara worked on a herringbone quilt using Denyse Schmidt fabrics.

If you've been curious about the Bakersfield Modern Quilt Guild, you should pop in on one of our meetings or sew-ins! You can find our schedule under the "Meetings" tab on the home page. We are a relaxed, fun-loving group, and we'd love to have you join us!

Question of the Week

Question Mark Clip Art
This week's question is all about thread. I only use Aurifil thread for piecing, and I'll sometimes use it for longarm quilting. I also use Isacord and Superior Threads products for longarming. What threads do you prefer for piecing and quilting?
