Marian got this far on assembling her table runner:
Ann, Joy, Marian were the "night owls". As usual. Long after everyone else had gone home, you could hear the following around the room... "One more seam." "Oh! Only a few more pieces to cut." "Just need to pack up." Eventually, we went home, too. Exhausted, but pleased with putting in a good night's work.
Until next time...
Quilt til you wilt!!!
My quilt guild in Washington hosts a Quilt 'Til You Wilt day the middle of March every year. It starts at 6 AM and goes until midnight. It is so much fun! One year I was working on a pink and black quilt for my daughter and left everything where I was sewing to attend something else going on in the room...the quilter next to me spilled coffee on my quilt blocks and didn't bother to tell me. I didn't discover it until I was pressing the quilt top to put it on my longarm. Since we had over 100 ladies there sewing, I had no idea who it was - we draw quilters from the little towns all around my town. I was lucky that the stain came out when I washed the quilt after it was put together. Made me really reluctant to share space that closely with anyone when piecing a quilt. Next time I'll make sure no one has an open drink container next to me. I'm glad you had a good time at your Quilt til you wilt!ReplyDelete
