DD is home this weekend to help me sort and file paperwork--the bane of my existence. Showed her my projects from the quilter's weekend. She was impressed-even I didn't know I had it in me to get so far!Uncle D. will finally get his 90th BD gift soon!!

Yay, our first meetup finally happened!!Thanks to Barb for hosting and Mary for attending! Quilting is definitely more fun with friends! I hope we will quilt together soon.I always told my daughter "you can never have too many friends". Sort of like you can never have too many quilts!
Yours in piece.

Well the quilting weekend is over.Sigh.So many quilts, so little time.Though I am a novice I seemed to learn a lot by wandering around (when I should have been sewing) looking at everyone else's work. A triangle here, a curve there,wonderful fabric everywhere. Well I am smug about one thing. A seasoned quilter was fretting over a "mistake" she had made (it looked fine to me) with her inset fussy cut pictures. I was admiring her quilt at the unsewn stage. What about if you switched those 2 blocks and rotated that one 90 degrees, said I.Ta-da!! Problem solved!! 2 heads are always better than one I told her.I smiled my way back to my workstation. I may not yet be a great quilter but my math is still pretty good!
