Another Quilting Day!

I'm beginning to wonder how many times I go to quilt meeting. It's more than I thought I would ever do! Every time I turn around, it's another quilting day with friends.


I had my blocks that I started at retreat. So, I took them along and worked on this block. It's another one of Nancy Chong patterns. I have more to do on this one, but will work on it when I can.

While I was at the quilt shop I took a photo of mom's quilt that the owner wanted to buy from mom.


Another quilt was in the way - but you get the idea. This quilt my mother made for Quilter's Junction when they were doing the BOM program a few years back. Evelyna (owner) made the patterns and mom would applique them to show at the monthly meetings. Evelyna asked me if I would check with my mother to see if she would sell it to her. I had talked to mom about her wanting to buy the top. I found out today that mom did sell the quilt to her. I was a little disappointed, because she didn't ask me if I wanted the quilt. Oh, well. I'm not lucky enough to be asked if I would like any of her tops. Those quilts are hers, and she has the right to sell or give them away. I just tell her to do what she wants. Maybe one day she will offer to give me one of her really pretty tops she doesn't want. I may get the pattern from her and make one myself.

I'm still doing the "pop-up" every 10 mins. It's actually getting to be funny! I feel like a jack-in-the-box. Every 10 mins the timer goes off and I'm popping up to straighten out my shoulders. I didn't get any exercise in today so will do that tonight. Jumping up and down makes me surprised I actually get anything done! lol

Today was a good day, not much got done, but was with good friends and company which makes me Happy Quilting.

Spending The Day With Mom

It snowed more last night. Soooo, this morning was all white. It was gorgeous! Patrick said to wait till 10 am before going out. I decided...
