Back to 'Sisters"

One of these days I will get this blogging down to s science.........
Today being the first Saturday after the first Friday of the month, it was the day for "stitch in sisters". It was so good to see all of my quilting buddies and catch up after the holidays. I started a new quilt-this month's quilt of the month-one of Pat's patterns called "peace in the Valley". It is foundation piecing which I have done before. I spent the whole Saturday session cutting. My hands are going to hurt tonight!! Thank goodness Cindi had advil with her but they are already screaming from sustained use of the rotary cutter. Getting old sucks!

Anyway show and tell was interesting-seeing what some of the others did sicne last we met. I took my new honneyberries in to be quilted as I gave the other one to Laur. i hope Spiff will like the new one as much as he enjoyed the one that is now at Laur's house. Bailey liked it too.

I decided not to put the outer border on the scrappy quilt I made. One of the blocks got left at the shop last month and I had to go get it as Karen was holding it for ramsom. I really like the finished quilt although I don't know what I will do with it. I hope one of the girls will claim it as their own.
