Weekend sewing

Felt good to get back in front of the sewing machine.

Orange and black bags are from a patterns out of a quilt magazines. Nice to use up some fabric from my stash and a few yards of flat lace. Zebra print is a wine bottle tote. The tutorial can be found here.
I see a few more of those in the future.

And two matching table runners. Need to quilt them this week.

I went to the local quilt meeting last night. I had an unexpectedly good time. The guest speaker was Jill Mead, the editor of Quilts and More magazine.

Jill gave all if us a couple of magazines and I had to buy three of her patterns while I was there. The pattern photos have a very 1980's look to them but her stuffed looked fabulous on the guild members that modeled them.

I was so impressed with the level of talent in the room. It might be a long while before I take something for show and tell.

Dropped off the double wedding quilt top at the long arm quilters place. You will be happy to know I didn't go with the cheapest option. For some reason I feel more comfortable with this long arm.

Now I am hunting though my fabrics looking for the next project. I am thinking about another cowpoke quilt. Yee-haw.

A definite sign of spring.

And to my sister... Take a shovel and clippers when you go to dig the lilacs up.
