This was a great weekend! It was our monthly Sit and Sew ( as Babs calls it ) at Tirane's house. I think each of us always looks forward to our Saturday... we can spend time with friends, show off our accomplishments, talk about family and enjoy just being together. I brought the Turning Twenty quilt to show, Babs had her Scatterd Scraps, Swooze was setting the Quilt of Valor quilt she had just finished and Tirane was -- gee, what were you doing???
Tirane and I have decided to make Double Delight from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mystery. It's not a mystery any longer, since the end result is published on the web,,, but check it out! It's a great pattern! Tirane put the pattern into EQ6 and sent me the file to play with the colorings. I had some fabric that I really have been wanting to use and this is going to be the perfect vehicle for it. I'll save all this for another posting.
Anyway, I brought my FW with me and started sewing the patches for the Double Delight quilt. This is such a great machine to take to things like this... it's not heavy, it's not big and it sews such a nice straight stitch! I have named her The Tar Baby... ( you know,, she's little like a baby machine and she's black just like tar, and like in the story your fingers just sorta stick to her -- so she is The Tar Baby)
I had all the good intentions of taking my camera and taking pictures of all of our activities... LOL, you guessed it,,, no camera. - Maybe next time ??
Today I got the whole day to sew -- it was wonderful! DH was watching the football games and even took me out to eat tonite - YIPEE! While watching The MALTESE FALCON ( with Bogie! )I worked on the Quilter's Trail quilt - all the blocks are sewed together and the rows are put together so - it's all done except for the borders! We are having a great warm spell ( about 70deg ) so thought I would take the picture outside... I'm really happy with how it has come out.. Now I just need to decided on borders....
I'll leave that for another post,,, I'm sewed out for the day,, thinking a hot shower will feel good, then bed.
Have a good evening!
