What I’ve been up to
It turns out that after a retreat it takes a little time to get back to reality. And then there’s a guild meeting and a holiday. Today is my official catch up on everything day (if I owe you an email let me know).
I spent last week preparing for our NJMQG meeting. I’m queen bee for the month and had to cut all of the fabric for my Christmas quilt, which turned out to be really time consuming.
I made a test block to make sure that my instructions were accurate.
The meeting was wonderful. We announced the winners of our guild quilt block challenge as chosen by our judges Mark Lipinski, Alison Glass and Elizabeth Hartman. Anyone who has talked modern quilting with me knows how much I idolize Elizabeth Hartman. And when I found out that she had picked my block (#14) as her winner I just about exploded with happiness. My prize was a gift certificate to RPS and this beauty, a jelly roll of Kona solids from challenge sponsor Robert Kaufman:
In my free moments (there weren’t many until yesterday) I was working on my Aerial Quilt blocks from Carolyn Friedlander’s Sewdown class. I just have one half block left:
And then I’m on to this pile of loveliness:
