20 years

This weekend I attended my 20th class reunion in Clinton, Tennessee. I was a graduate of the Clinton High School class of 1990. It was great to see friends that I haven't seen since our 10 year reunion. The most fun was spending the weekend with my best friend since Kindergarten, Greta. We did a lot of girly stuff the day of the reunion - shopping and having our makeup done! I think we look great for being out of High School for 20 years!

I love that we got to use the "Liberty Of London" car fabric. This will be an adorable quilt for her nephew!

The Orange, White & Khaki quilt has been quilted and the binding was attached today. I will be taking this quilt with me to TN next week. Can't wait to post photos!

Last night I attended my first meeting of the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild. It was so nice to finally meet some of the ladies that I have become friends with online. I carpooled with Melanie - Texas Freckles. I also got to meet Lisa - Vintage Modern Quilts and Michelle - Tapestry Tree. It was nice to see all the beautiful projects that the members are working on. I will really enjoy being a part of this wonderful group of ladies!

Sewing again!!!

Crazy Nine Patch

Everything is unpacked, set up and I am sewing again! It feels soooo good!
Lot's of projects have piled up since the move. I have started working on my 
- Orange, White & Khaki quilt
- 3x6 Quilting Bee blocks
- Katie's June SNTMVQB Block
- 3 different skirts ( it is hot here in Texas and I need some skirts to wear!)

I finished my Paint Box quilt before we moved and finally took photos of it last week.

Paintbox Finished
I love how it turned out. I did really simple straight line quilting on it. Just enough to highlight each of the blocks.

Paintbox Back Finished
I love my square Color Wheel back!

Paintbox Block & Binding
This is my favorite block. I love how the Owl is looking out the window. I liked the gray print fabric so much that I used it for the binding. I like how it picks up all the colors in the quilt. The "little bug" that made it into the shot likes it too.

I only have 3 blocks left to receive from my SNTMVQB group. As soon as I get all of them I will take photos. The ones I have received so far are Beautiful!!!

Happy Wednesday!
