Boston Modern Quilt Guild Charity Afternoon

A glorious day both outdoor and indoor, last Sunday was. We hosted a “quilt-in” for the Boston Modern Quilt Guild on August 10, as they wrap up their Quilts for Boston initiative. Guild members filed in and out, quilted on the Gammill longarm machines, chatted, laughed, and dropped off binding and more finished quilts.

Whimsical loops in a variegated quilting thread popped on this bright quilt.

Gwen and Laurena kept both the Statler Stitchers going. Sara and Courtney tried free motion quilting on a longarm for the first time. They easily adapted, incorporating a variety of motifs in the quilts.

Five quilts came off the machines that afternoon, ready for binding. A leisurely, fun way to spend a Sunday!
