After the party I headed off to stitching at Karen's. Really enjoyed seeing the girls for the first time this year. I dropped off four quilt tops for Karen to quilt over the next few weeks: Medley, Cakewalk, My Pink and Green Heaven and Scrappy Churndash (below). White borders were added after this photo was taken.
16 Snippets blocks were sewn together on Saturday night
and the rest were sewn together on Sunday but it was way too hot and humid to turn on the iron, so these blocks are still waiting to be pressed.
Camille Roskelley has released a new pattern, Takes the Cake, and I spent some time after work yesterday cutting out strips and 2-1/2" squares for this quilt. Lots more squares to be cut from the strips. This quilt will be very different for me because I'll be using black crossweave fabric for the background.
January collage of quilts in progress and a couple of finished birthday presents.
I've been watching "West Wing" again while sewing and have so enjoyed the whole series - was quite sad to see President and Mrs Bartlett flying off into the sunset.
