 What are you doing to celebrate National Quilting Day here in the USA?
I’ve been working on this….54 quilt entries from my guild into the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival this summer. After hours of pouring over the quilts, begging for more and using our superior math skills, Vicki and I have finally drawn up the schematics for hanging all of the quilts. We have made lots of lists, measured twice and are ready to turn everything in. Whew! It’s going to be an awesome display…hope you can make it!

 My sewing machine has been collecting dust for the last month it seems like, but I have been making plans….

 Spring is finally here…so why not start a new project!

 It’s also time to begin a new leader/ender quilt so I’ve spent some time cutting squares and rectangles from my boxes of scraps and strips.

 I sewed up a few to get an idea of how it will look….glad I did because I’ve ended up deciding to tweak it a bit. I’ll be gifting this scrappy quilt to one of my grand daughters when it’s finished. It will be awhile!

 Another project on the horizon is turning these delightful confections into a quilt. The members of the Mid-Century Modern Bee baked up some yummy cakes for me in February. The last one arrived a week ago and I still need to add one made by me… I’m thinking maybe grape cake with lemon icing. We’ll see. Ideas for some other fun additions to it are simmering in my brain too!

Happy National Quilting Day, America!
