A Quilty Weekend . . . .

Even though the temperatures here have been mighty chilly,
I ventured into the city both Saturday and Sunday this past weekend.

Always tons of fun to see all my quilting buddies!

Three of our group quilts were on display.
So great to see them up close again.
This quilt was based on Stripes.

This quilt is our Cheddar quilt.
(Sorry the colors are so wacky in my photos)

This was our first group quilt,
Everyone brought a strip and we pieced them together.
Looks like the Princess and the Pea bed!

We also had our Kandinsky challenge up,
Just a couple more blocks to add.
For this challenge, Michelle cut up a color copy of the painting,
and each participant took a part and interpreted it in their own style.
It really looks remarkable in person.
Can't wait to see it all finished.

This is one of my faves from the show and tell.
Really cool.
You will be able to see all the show and tell 
on the Mod Blog in a few days.

As I was walking back to the train Saturday,
I saw this bar decorated for Mardi Gras.
Is it that time of year already??

Then onto Sunday's adventures.
David, Earamichia and I met to discuss ideas for
a challenge quilt we are collarborating on.
Many ideas flying and giggles thrown around 
and I think we have a great idea.  No pictures of any of that until June!

But . . . as we were lying around the floor contemplating, 
Earamicha jumped up and said,
"Okay we are going to make quick improve blocks showing who we are.
We will just cut and glue and see where this goes."
In about two minutes she set up a table and chairs,
whipped out a box a great fabric and three pairs of scissors.

It was tremendous fun!
Everyone got pretty quiet really fast.
Below is David's.

This one is Earamichia's.

And of course, you would know this is mine! 

So not a lot of "sewing" going on this weekend.
I did work on my hexies a bit.  
I really need to finish this one, it's getting too big to call
"my take with me" project.

As I walked back to the train on 125th street,
I spied this fabulous mosaic.

You know I can't pass up drinking in all that color!
Did you do something fun this weekend?
I hope so!


  1. When you position the block I made like you did in the picture, I didn't realize how much it looks like a sewing maching. Now I have to rethink Who I Am....again. How am I like a sewing maching??? deep thoughts ahead for sure.

  2. I am inspired by the color in your post So Vibrant
    The weekend must have been a joy all that quilt and sharing with others. Have a good week
