But that didn't stop some of us from starting the year out with a quilting day. We had our last big group sewing day last Fall and some of us were having withdrawals from not quilting with our friends for so long. So I decided to invite some ladies that live close to my house to come over and quilt. We set up a frame and loaded a QOV top that I had pieced last year. There were 8 of us and it turned out to be a real fun day. I made a pot of soup, homemade bread, salad and dessert for lunch.
Loaded in the frame with lots of help
Marking the final border "With a little help from my Friend"
Are you humming the Beatles song yet?
All hands on deck and ready to quilt.
We made good progress on this top. I forgot to get a picture of the end of the days' progress. I'll post a picture when the whole quilt is finished. Between all the laughing and eating, we did manage to quilt some too.
I want to thank Brenda, Coleen, Karen, Jenny, Mary, Kathy and Sheron for taking time to help get this quilt started. Hope you all had a fun day. Maybe we should have to another impromptu day to finish up.?
Yesterday, we started putting together some of the QOV blocks that came in during the QOV Eastern MO Block Drive. Those pictures will be in a separate post later. The quilting and sewing bug has taken over at my house this week. That's a "good" kind of bug. Thankfully the flu and cold bug has missed me. I don't have time to entertain him anyway.!
Stay warm and healthy till next time. Hope you are finding time to quilt and sew during these winter days.
Happy Sewing and thanks for stopping by.
