My BFF, Nancy, and I had a wonderful in person Quiltathon weekend!!! I drove to her house on Friday evening after work and we got started sewing right after dinner.
I pulled out a UFO that had been sitting in a box since right before the New Year and started sewing. I managed to get over 1/2 the blocks pieced Friday night and Saturday afternoon. The UFO that I was working on is a pattern called Split Decision and I’m using the Bistro fabric line from Moda along with an off white solid fabric for the “light” side of the block. I’m really happy with the way this one is turning out :)
While I was working on my UFO, Nancy finished a baby quilt top and quilted it and then she quilted the pieces for both of the bags we decided to make.
So Saturday night and Sunday morning we put together our Paris Traveler’s Bags, the pattern is from Fig Tree Quilts and is a wonderful overnight bag! We were certainly glad to be working together on our bags as we hit a speed bump or two along the way. We used fabric from Loralie Ladies and I chose a pink polka dotted gusset, while Nancy opted for a red polka dotted gusset.
What a fantastic weekend! I wish we lived closer so we could sew together all the time in person, instead of over the phone like we usually do LOL.
I hope everyone had a great Quiltathon, I’m looking forward to the next one :)
