This last week has been a busy one. I quilted the next Patchwork Party quilt for my LQS and took it in to the shop on Monday. I think the fall party starts on Sept 1st. Anyway, my part is done. Yeah!!
I also quilted a baby quilt this week. It’s made using the leftover blocks from another quilt. She just wanted a simple meander on it, with a few flowers here and there.
I quilted this one by doing a continuous curve in the 9 patch blocks and putting a flower in the printed squares. I then put leaves in the sashings and borders.
Now for the fun part of my day. Tonight was my guild meeting and we had a speaker, Judy Laquidara! I read her blog all the time http://www.patchworktimes.com she showed us lots of beautiful quilts and how easy her patterns are. Some of them look complicated, but once she shows what is the block and what is the sashing, it’s easy! I heard a lot of positive remarks after the meeting!! I think everyone really enjoyed having her come to our quild meeting. Of course I was thrilled getting to meet her!! She’s doing a workshop tomorrow, but I have to work, I don’t think my boss would appreciate me taking off work the second day of school!! I do hope to stop in and check things out between routes though!
That’s it for now…….

What is LQS? And already done, I thought you like the last minute adrenalin. Great Job! :o)
LQS is local quilt shop. I was racing against the clock on getting the Patchwork party quilt done. Although it doesn’t start until Sept 1st. I had to get it finished so that Jerry can get the binding on it and then get the pictures taken and turned in.
So YOU are the one that made Judy cross that scary bridge!
Guilty!! It ended up not being bad for her. It’s just an open bridge, if you don’t look off to the side, you can’t tell that you’re going over the river.
