What do you get when you mix 35 quilters, loads of fabric, a bunch of sewing machines and a pot luck lunch?
A very fun work day for making some beautiful blocks that will be even more beautiful quilts!
I spent yesterday with the Etowah Valley Quilters of Cartersville, Georgia, a cute little city town north of Atlanta where hills are rolling and the Georgia southern drawl runs as thick as the Georgia southern hospitality!
I was last with this group a couple of years ago, and it was wonderful to feel like I was spending my birthday with friends!
Sew much fun on a vintage 301!
Partners in Quilt Crime!!
Even the quilt guys joined in on the fun!
You are one cool quilt dude, Richard!
What a great 53rd birthday for me!
The pattern for Midnight Flight is found in my book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders.

I arrived at my son Jason’s home last night in Columbia, South Carolina, a 5 hour drive from Cartersville. A birthday dinner out at Bonefish with Jason and his girlfriend Jenny filled the last hours of the evening.
I got to love on my grand kitties!
Dresden, a 7 year old cuddle bug!
Lola, a 3 year old sweet girl!
I’m packing my bags back into my car. I’m on a mission today! Meeting up first with Randy in Charlotte, grabbing groceries for the week while we wait for Lori’s flight to come in around 7pm! Then we will be on our way up to Quilt Villa for a week of girlfriend sewing retreat time! Hooray!
Yes, definitely the best birthday week ever!
Enjoy your Saturday, everyone!
