This is Monique and Me after our evening extravaganza kick of for Celebration 2014!
The Virginia Consortium of Qiulters has their retreat at Smith Mountain Lake in a wonderful 4H Education center every other year on even numbered years, and I’ve been privileged to have taught here the past 3 consecutive events.
This year the theme is “Quilting…It’s TIMELESS” and we are using the Quilting Tardis to visit different eras in quilting history! I love this! It’s very imaginative, and we are having a great time.
Last night after a meet and greet and dinner, We gathered together, all gazillion of us for presentations by our instructors for this year, letting everyone know a bit about ourselves and sharing the projects we will be working on this weekend.
This is the crowd gathered together when I got up to give my schpeel!
Full on THIS side of the house!
Full on THIS side of the house too, and so excited we are a bit blurry as a result! LOL!
Then, what we all love the most --- Show & Share of projects completed from classes taken at PREVIOUS VCQ Celebrations! There were quilts brought in from when I taught in 2010, and 2012!

It was such a fun time and I wasn’t ready for bed by the time we wrapped up for the evening, so I went back to my classroom for some of this:
I am almost done with the string blocks for the border of my Cheddar Sampler. If there is time this morning, I’ll be squaring up and de-papering before breakfast. Class doesn’t start until 9am. Gotta get that sewing time in!
Have a wonderful Friday, everyone!
