Quilt of Valor Sew-in
|sewing scraps into blocks on Friday evening|
Prior to the sew-in, I prepared the three sections that made up each block, and Friday evening, I worked on sewing the three sections together and giving the blocks a good press.
The light on my sewing machine burned out on Friday evening, so without the portable Ott light, it would have been difficult to see what I was doing. My machine is over 10 years old, so I guess it was about time for the light to burn out.
Note the quilt on the floor in the upper right of the photo. The young woman who was making it had not prior sewing experience before Saturday morning. She had the sewing machine humming after one of the coordinators gave her some instruction.
