Jennifer and I arrived at Love's promptly around 9:00 AM yesterday morning. We wanted to be sure we had plenty of time for sewing. Of course, first we had to have a morning snack. Love had extra tables set up for us in her sun room. It's a lovely room with large windows to her back yard which has lots of roses, birds and squirrels to watch. We ate at the table in the sun room (behind Jennifer).
Jennifer worked on her son's halloween costume first and then proceeded to start a nine-patch baby quilt. Actually, it was a disappearing nine patch. A neat pattern! She finished that top and also put together 2 halloween quilt tops for her kids.
I worked on my "Gone to Texas" quilt. Of course, I brought my Featherweight machine to sew on. It is so easy to carry around and sews like a dream. Love continued to work on lap quilts for the nursing home that her church plans to give for Christmas. She is a little camera shy, so I don't have a picture of her.
For lunch, Love had homemade soup, salad, cornbread and brownies for dessert. We also had cookies that Jennifer brought. I was stuffed! Oh, and BTW, Love keeps a stock of chocolate at her house too! I was pretty good about keeping that to a minimum.
It amazes me that 3 women meeting by blogging, different ages and situations, get along so well. We talked the whole day. Quilting is a wonderful hobby! Thanks, Love! BTW, I didn't see one dust bunny or spider web while we were there, so I think she went to too much work cleaning for us.
Below is the assignment from my Jo Morton Class. I put it up on my design wall to see if I liked the fabrics and I do. Only the nine little (3") blocks are sewn together. It will also get a border.
Thanks for visiting! Hope you are having a great weekend. The weather here is wonderful! 40's at night and 70's during the day.
