Squeeze it all in here girls, we can fit in this photo!
We had an ADVENTUROUS day yesterday with the Prairie Quilters in Wichita – including friends who had come from as far as Nebraska to join in our fun this weekend.
This bunch was such a hoot! We had an absolute ball, and I have made plans with Jean (purple shirt, second from the left) to do some antique mall hopping and lunch out on Wednesday because my flight doesn’t leave until later afternoon. Yeeeeehawww!
We met at the extension office, and what a busy place it was. Saturdays in this time of year also mean the farmer’s market has full control of the parking lot, and the place was hopping. There was also a vintage/antique clock and watch show going on.
Just about 11:20 while we are busily cutting and sewing and pressing – the power went out for the whole building! Our first thought of course was that “THE IRONS DID IT!” But it turns out that something happened with the entire grid and power was out for 4,000 residents as well as some of the traffic lights in the area.
No, the irons did NOT do it! But we were still without power!
This lovely featherweight just sat there. No power!
It was decided that we would just go to lunch from 11:30 until 12:30, and we must have had good quilting karma on our side because the power was restored by the time we got back and we didn’t skip a beat!
I am so glad..I was trying to think of what we could do with no power. We could still get practice cutting with the specialty rulers, we could talk technique, we could still do our show & share, but we needed power to sew. So happy it worked out!
These irons were NOT to blame!
Happy Quilters cutting it up!
There were some variations in theme!
I like where these are going!
Always always always experiement and turn the pieces around. You might find a layout you find more interesting! And if you did it by mistake? Just own it and go with it! LOL!
Looking great, girls!
What a fun, fun day!
Thank you for making me feel so much at home here!

I did some wandering last evening!
I sure love it being light later. But BOY was it windy out! I walked down to the Old Town area….more photos to follow in a future post. But don’t you love these buildings and the brickwork? And of course, that tile entrance way! They just don’t make them like this any more. Wichita is also famous for bronze sculptures all through the downtown area. Beautiful art!
I did some of this!
Can you see what's going on here? Sometimes you've got to literally watch TV in mirror image when the desk faces the wall and the TV is behind you! I’ve got two Winston Ways blocks done for my QOV Mini Quilt Auction. I hope to finish the next two tonight. So grateful for quilters who will loan me their machines while I am in their midst!
