As you saw from yesterday’s Iphone-O-Gram --- we were busy up to our ears in piles of strings and scraps!
The biggest hit of the day of course was the HUGE mound of strips on the community scrap table ----Bring some, take some, share some --- and I admit, even a few are going home with ME!
A wonderful time was had by all as we sewed blocks in many different themes and color combos….
We had Christmas quilts, Halloween quilts, batik ones and black/white/yellow ones ----backgrounds of as varied colorways as I have ever seen anywhere --- this is what is so fun to watch come about.
You know what though? I don’t think there was a single person who used RED as a background……I’ve had it on my mind to do solid red as a background for a long time --- like right---when am I supposed to find the time to remake this quilt?! Oh, some day!
I have to show you one of the coolest of all….this is Wanda’s “Wizard of Oz” theme…..she fussy cut her “kites” out of larger Wizard of Oz prints….it is going to be SO awesome when she gets it done!
They were all turning out so great, and of course, no one made a dent in any amount of fabric they brought to sew with --- that that wasn’t REALLY the point of getting together, was it? Nope….we gathered to enjoy each other and mingle, converse, laugh, support, share and learn. Any fabric usage is secondary!
And after the raid on that scrap table, I think there were some that left with more than they came with! LOL!
So on with the slide show:
After class, we high tailed it over to the church where the guild meeting was to be held ---we unloaded the trunk show, set things up, and made a bee-line back to Marti’s for a bit of R&R ---((Take that to mean that I crashed for a 1.5 hr much needed NAP!)) and then headed back to meet up with the ladies at 6pm for a meeting that started at 6:30 ----
Time is winding down in Delaware --- it flies so fast! We have today ---it’s a Cathedral Stars workshop day ---dinner out with the guild ladies, and then tomorrow ---back to Baltimore for my home flight.
Enjoy your Tuesday, everyone!
