WIP Wednesday - A name tag for my new modern quilting group!

We have started a new Modern Quilting Group in Tyler, Tx.  We meet every 4th Thursday from 4-7.  The time is "come and go" so if you can't get there right at 4pm, don't worry about it.  Come when you can and bring your sewing machine and a project to work on.  We meet at the Nimble Thimble on Old Jacksonville Highway.  Everyone is welcome and there is no charge.  We would like to get the word out to people in Longview and the surrounding area so please help us spread the word.

My WIP this week ties into our new Modern Quilting group.  We are all making name tags to wear for our meetings.  Since I love paper piecing so much, I decided to do a small paper pieced pinwheel in a star and sew my name on bottom.  I plan to hand embroidery my name.  

Here's a pic of what I have so far:

And here's my messy work station.  I also have a block cut out for my Saturday Sampler and I just need to put it together. 
I love a work in progress.  It makes me want to start another project :)

  1. Hi there, I wanted to stop and say thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello. I have had fun looking around at your wonderful work. I like your husbands new car too!

    1. Thanks Cynthia! My husband likes his new car too. :)

  2. Cute name tag! Your group sounds so casual and fun.

  3. Your teeny tiny paper piecing amazes me! I can't wait to see the finished tag.


Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
