Sewing! And Pat Sloan...

 

I finally got something done, sewing-wise, yesterday. I decided to sew the Marmalade rows together - yes, it's one BRIGHT quilt! I still have to add the borders, but I'm a bit disappointed in how small it is at this point. And it's square. I really prefer rectangular quilts. Hmmm....

I may dig out some of my Kaffe Fassett stash and see if I can add some top and bottom borders BEFORE I do the border around the outside. Or maybe I'll put the borders on and then add another border to the top and bottom. This will take some doing and thinking and playing. We'll see where it takes me.

Next I basted the next Rowdy Flat Library Quilt block (ready for hand quilting!) - no picture, but I promise it did it.


Last night was our guild meeting with Pat Sloan. I LOVED all her quilts.


She was entertaining (though she made fun of engineers, of which I am one- but I forgive her) and I enjoyed her presentation. 



We had a big crowd for the meeting. Pat is teaching here in town tomorrow and Saturday. I'm not taking her classes, but many of my friends are. I can't wait to see what they make. The classes are more techniques instead of a specific pattern - using lots of scraps. 

Today, today.... I think I'll hand sew. I've cut out another Bring Me Flowers block and the LAST I'm a Farmer's Daughter block. 

TGIF!
