I went to a sew-in today at the home of my first quilting teacher, Pat. Her home is beautifully decorated with her blue and yellow quilts. I found this cabinet particular intriguing - a curio cabinet with stacked quilts from top to bottom. Pat has probably made hundreds of quilts, often making several for each class she has taught through the years. This is only a small sampling of some of her quilts.
It was hot today - very very hot - 102 degrees. I came home from the sew-in and hopped in a cool shower. It took my body a long time to cool off. Jane and I went out to eat soup and salad, and then talked the quilty talk for a couple of hours. She's such a sweet lady. She's tired from the long hours working at The Fabric Patch during its going out of business sale.
We had fun talking about all the projects we're going to do when she is no longer working on the weekend. Jane suggested we have one cutting weekend, one sewing weekend, and one shopping weekend every month. Sounds good to me! She'll keep me motivated, that's for sure!
