Why? I took a day off of work to see Jeni Baker speak at the afternoon meeting of the Mad City Quilt Guild. Her talk was titled "Journey of a Modern Quilter" and it was a lot of fun for everyone. I overheard great comments from members on how nice it was to see new trends, different color styles and all of the energy and enthusiasm that Jeni brought to the meeting.
I completed my Nordika Mega Pinnie in time for show and tell! Hooray! Isn't it cute? =)
The Mad Mod meeting is this Thursday and we are making Icky Thump blocks for the block lotto. I finished my block only to realize that I sewed the quadrants together wrong. I took my lumps and ripped it out. Here is the 'after' version:
Lastly, I emptied a spool! I love it when I get to this point. A lot of sewing happened to get to this point. This means I get to start Retreat with a fresh spool...IN SEVEN DAYS! Retreat is only 7 days away! The countdown has begun!
