Evening Sit & Sew at Sew Expo!

KY_Apr2014 075
We had a great time –can you imagine? Over 80 quilters gathered in one place for a sit n sew evening of fun!

I thought I might just bring that danged Wonky Wishes quilt to bind, but I didn’t sew a single stitch.

It was too much fun wandering the room meeting everyone, reacquainting myself with those I had met other places---the energy level was high and the excitement for days of sewing non-stop palpable!

While wandering the room I snapped a few photos….I hope you can see what a great time we’ll be having here at General Butler State Resort park with the UK extension service Sew Expo.

While THIS Easy Street was finally assembled into a top!

Show us how that Quilter’s Yoga is done, girl!

Tomorrow will be a full day --- we are starting out with a Hidden Spools workshop, ((With 50 students!!!!)) and I’ll give my presentation after the banquet tomorrow evening.

As for me now…I think the only thing I’m good for tonight is to pull the paper off of paper pieced flying geese….and maybe….get some early shut eye, and dream quilty dreams.  I know I’m going to need my energy tomorrow!

Night, everyone!

  1. You're having so much fun! I love to see it. Makes me wish I was there. Sigh.

  2. Got to agree with thequiltersshed. Great to read your blog and your enthusiasm is most infectious! You make me smile. Thanks

  3. Looks like FUN! What year did you make your Ocean Waves? I have a bunch of 1 1/2" HST's just begging to be used. Thanks for sharing photos of the fun you are sharing with all of the quilters' there.

  4. I had to chuckle at Anita's picture (working on My Blue Heaven). She is dressed to match her quilt! Love it!

  5. I just love your posts, Bonnie! Your energy and enthusiasm jump off the page - or should I say screen? Your captions under the photos are brilliant. Love all the sewing on view here but the Ocean Waves blocks are marvellous, such lovely colours that the neutrals show off perfectly.
