I did! There was fun, sewing, a TON of food, lots of laughs, and yes, we even went fabric shopping.
Jayme worked on binding. Nancy brought her Day Break quilt to lay out on the design bed (design floor was occupied). Would you believe that is the "lap" size? The design bed is a queen.
Everybody brought food.
Stacey made "biscuits" - the quilty kind. Delicious.
Nancy had also dug out an old UFO to finish...she split the blocks into two piles and made two sweet little quilts for her grand nieces.
Stephanie worked on her log cabin blocks. My picture doesn't do the colors justice.
Isn't this a cute idea! Stephanie's sister "numbered" her quilt rows with baby pins. Each pin holds the row number of safety pins.
Dawn was making purses - three at once.
And I was trying to quilt this...had to clean the machine first...and socialized... loaded bobbins...and ate...quilted one pass...and went shopping...quilted another pass...and socialized...
Needless to say I didn't get much done, but I definitely celebrated National Quilting Day the right way...with lots of great quilting friends!
