Around here, we definitely honored National Quilting
Star Medallion lap quilt top about 6 years ago. She drew out the quilting motifs for me to quilt and calls it her "Carpenter's Daughter." She's my binding expert and finished it herself. Yay - it's done!
Visited a Vintage Fair:
Added a new sewing machine to the collection... Isn't she a cutie?
Even my husband pitched in. First he worked on my Mom's old buffet, then he got out a rotary cutter (!) I know, right? Bless his heart. He's been cutting out more Carpetbag kits. Maybe it was the chocolate?
We've tested a few new patterns.
Hosted a few classes.
Made a few bags.
Worked on some UFOs.
In addition, I attended the annual USU Sewing Training for FACS (Home Ec) teachers and 4-H leaders from around the state, teaching my version of an orange peel / faux cathedral window table runner from the RBD Circles video.
My girls and I presented our trunk show, "Generations" for a group in Salt Lake City. "Hearts Stitched Together in Unity and Love" was the theme.
Attended my Longarm Quilt Guild meeting where someone I didn't know had found my free pattern online, made it, quilted it and brought it for Sew & Tell!
And then, of course... I received my advance copies of Quiltmaker May/June '14. Sew Happy! And in honor of the little Hexie Meadow on the cover, the Riley Blake goodie bundle winner has been chosen and notified. I'm still waiting to hear back before I can announce...
Whew, what a month! And like one of the comments the other day, "Isn't every day Quilting Day?" My answer is YES.
