Someone once told me, "It you quilt, you will have friends no matter where you go". This is so true. I took a class in May and met a great lady Merrie. She has invited me to two of their mini retreats that are about an hour away. Yesterday I hit the road at 8:30 and didn't get home until 6:30. Next time, I think Miss Annie will go to the Puppy Parlor for a sleep over and I'll grab a room and stay for 2 days of sewing.

I think these are Carolyn's pieces, Crazy 8 Pattern. Very graphic and she's ready for Christmas with this table topper.
Anyone who has made these little projects know how much work goes into them. I told Carol I'd rather pay someone cash and carry my purchase away. She did a beautiful job on this, she has more patience than I.
Judy Niemeyer pattern and I just love the colors. I've seen paper piecing with all these spikes and slivers and they can be bulky, but Mary has this mastered. Her piece laid flat and smooth. Now to get it quilted and bound. I'm hoping to see this in a show in the future.
There were other pieces for show and tell, but I didn't have my camera out. Thanks ladies, my day was great and I hope to see you all again at the next sew in!
