The fun with new sewing friends continued over three luxurious days!
Here we are in our tees for the second day. I made them and just so Mary Lou knows that all #1 fans are not created equal, at the bottom of my #1 is a little bead that says "A" and Sue's says "B". hee-hee
Here's Mary Lou sewing and Sue trying to earn brownie points by ironing for her. Hmmmm...
Mary Lou shared lots of spectacular quilts!
She had us cut free hand a picture she drew. A little intimidating, but it showed that sometimes cutting is easier than drawing. Interesting.
Here's Mary Lou's Flower Power extravaganza!
A container quilt
Her quilt that won a blue ribbon at APNQ!
Here's me and Sue on day three in yet another kiss-up-to-Mary-Lou tee!
A cheddar shirt, cheddar being Mary Lou's favorite color, with dancing crows and cherries, cherries are another Mary Lou favorite.
Lots of talk about "light giver" fabrics making quilts "pop". A light giver fabric has a light, medium, and dark value all in one print. This was one of my favorites. SO MUCH going on and GREAT EMBELLISHMENTS!
Hoochy Mama block piles were growing.
Here's sexy sophisticated Pat and one of her blocks. She had a fabulous collection of batiks.
Here was the newest and quietest quilter. She's just started quilting and was beaming pride and happiness with her too cute bird!!!
I often get so caught up in the excitement of being with THE Mary Lou and the happiness of being with friends that I don't end up producing that much. However, I really like what I started and look forward to finishing, so I can embellish.
That's one of the joys of this type of quilt, the anticipation of the unknown yet to come!!!! Hmmm....an interesting correlation can be made to life too..looking forward to embellishing the moments.
