Weekend update…….

I love weekends! Don’t we all though?

I ran to my LQS yesterday. They were having a little shop hop with 6 other stores in the KC area that have each been featured in the Quilt Sampler magazine. Each store had a 6″ and a 12″ block and then they designed a quilt using everyones blocks from the same fabric line. Here’s the one that was featured at Quilters Quarters. (I’m a bit partial to it, since I did the quilting. Of course you can’t really see it, but……I know I did it. LOL!!!)

Lori did a great job designing the quilt!

Last night my son was downstairs in my sewing room and I showed him my new toy(embroidery machine). He wanted to see it work, so I did his name on a piece of fabric. I gave it to him and he said “gee, now what will I do with it?” So I made it into a miniature pillow! He likes it!

Cute isn’t it? LOL!!

He started coming up with all kinds of ideas for stuff that I could make for him! Maybe I’ll teach HIM how to use it!! LOL!!

Anyway, I’m almost finished sewing all the HST’s from step 2 of the mystery quilt. Then to square them up…….. I will be happy when they are all done! I really hate squaring up all those pieces. I have to keep telling myself that it’s worth it in the end.

I started quilting this top this afternoon. It’s one of those kits that is all crosstitched. The lady that made it said she started it back in the late 70’s.

I guess I better get back to work on it………………….
