There is just something about a stack of quilts…as soon as a quilt is quilted–it seems I want to fold it, add it to a stack…and just look at it! So that was the first thing I did after receiving two of my quilts in the mail today…wonderfully quilted by Vivian! Actually, I looked at all of the stunning quilting and then started taking pictures!
Vivian is an artist…the quilting is stunning…I love how she quilted all around my stitchery with fun designs!
And, yesterday Dawn and I went to Nedra’s for lunch and a “sew” get-together! Nedra took us over to Superior Threads where we had a great time looking at all of the wonderful products (and of course, purchasing a few). Then it was back to Nedra’s for chicken salad croissants, pasta salad, veggie chips, grapes, and brownies…everything was delicious! You might notice in the picture below there are two packages with bows near the place settings for Dawn and I. Nedra gave us each packages of “Texture Magic…” a wonderful new Superior Threads product. I can’t wait to use it in a project or two or three!
After lunch we spent a few hours sewing in Nedra’s spacious sewing studio…I worked on my modern 9-patches and some Halloween Cottage blocks (design by Nanette) for a wall-hanging. Dawn worked on her “In the Leafy TreeTops” quilt (also a Nanette design), and Nedra was making a great quilt for her daughter. Nedra had all of the blocks sewn quickly and was starting to put them up on her design wall before we left!
