Happy Monday:) I hope everyone had as great a weekend as I did!
Paige’s longtime friends and quilt group were in town this weekend for some sewing and quilting. Ok, there was also some eating involved too, but we’ll get to that later:)
The SewMod studio was put to the test. We always ask ourselves…How many can comfortably fit in there? Will one ironing and cutting station be enough? etc, etc. All those questions a good quilt hostess asks. There were 6 of us, but I can honestly say that we were cozy but comfortable. I think quilter’s just enjoy being around each other, showing off their latest achievement, and getting advice from other quilters. Give us a needle and thread and watch us go, no matter where we are.
Now go grab your morning coffee and come see what we were up to!
And don’t worry, Daisy also had friends to keep her company…here are Wilson and Daisy beggin’ for snacks.
And Sophie and Daisy beggin’ for snacks:)
How about we start with a bit of show ‘n’ tell. This is a batik New York Beauty made by Karen S.
She made this quilt called Square Dance from Heather Mulder Peterson’s book, Livin’ Large, in Meadowsweet. I’m’ drooling over this!
Here’s some bright and happy quilt blocks that Margaret had been working on.
Since Paige and I have already “shown” our projects on the blog, I’ll show you what Karen V. brought me. The prettiest sunflowers I think I’ve seen. Fresh flowers always brighten the home.
And look what the girls surprised me with. The border fabric to the Anna Griffin Christmas collection. That was sooo sweet! Thank you:)
After show ‘n’ tell, it was time to get busy. Take a look at the seriously cute appliqued monsters Karen S. worked on.
She made us each a cute little sewing pouch.
And then whipped up a miniature quilt. She was super productive!
Check back tomorrow for Part 2 for more pics from our retreat. See you then!
