Saturday in the City

Today was our Metro Mod Guild meeting in NYC.
It was fabulous, and there were lots more people there than usual.
All the more fun I say!
And I must thank the lovely Victoria for once again opening her home
to all of us wild ladies.

Here is one of our group quilts all quilted up.
This was the 1/4 square curve.

 Mayann and her lovely red and white. 
You can't really see it here, but the center is all beads.

Victoria's 15 min play BOM.
Gotta love the cheddar yellow!

 Jackie's amazing paper pieced star . . . 
She said she has four more rounds to go.
The girl has patience! 

 Helen's Block

 Diane's scrappy quilt.
Use up those scraps!

 Chris's very colorful wonky log cabins.
Great colors!

 Jessica is hand quilting this beauty!
Another patient gal.

 Jody's pastel Kaffe, the colors positively pop.

 Earamichia's swag bag.

 Bernadette's quilt . . . "This is was fat looks like."
Apparently this the chromosome for fat.
Totally fabulous.

 Mary's rendition of a painting that she loves.
Seriously, there are a million pieces in that small quilt

 Here are our challenge blocks for the Cherrywood Collection
They hadn't been arranged yet, and I can't wait to see how that comes out!

 After the meeting, Bambi, Ellen, David, Mayann, Kendall 
and I did a little fabric shopping. 

 We end up at City Quilter of course.
All in all, a banner day for quilters!
We laughed, we ate and we bought fabric.
It doesn't get any better than that!

Fabric Goodness

My lovely sista has been purging . . .
So I am the lucky receiver of this wonderful pile of Marimekko fabric!!

Before my sista became a momma, she worked at Crate & Barrel
designing and executing their displays.
 So, she was able to use her discount to buy lots of fabric!
I miss her discount.  hehehe.

 Aren't these beauties!!  I love the navy and black on on the end.
And the floral, and the orange . . . 
The red and gold is seven yards worth of goodness!!!
I can't wait to start a new project with these.
Thanks little sis for the prezzy.
Keep purging, you know who will take it! ox
