Quilting and talking with friends....
a cool summer afternoon, we enjoyed having all the windows open to catch any breeze!

Today, my little helper "Shadow", sitting here on some fabric, and I are working on a new quilt top..... (sorry that the photo is not in focus...can't totally blame the moving kitty for that!)
This is a layout of some of the scrappy, wacky blocks which will be trimmed and sewn together to make the quilt top. It is called "Just Breathe" and is in a book called "Tried and True" from quilt designer Sandy Bonsib.

I have made this quilt before and shared the pattern with several friends. I recently gave my finished "Just Breathe" quilt to my brother for his birthday. So time to get into my stash of fabrics and recreate it!!!!

Dearest Lila...I love the picture of you quilting with friends. It is an example of sacred in the ordinary. It reminds me of the days my mom and sisters and I sat around gabbing and quilting. So glad that our generation has kept the tradition of quilting bee's going. I think it honors our ancestors.
PS We are getting together to do a baby quilt for my niece who is expecting.

What a wonderful picture of your group. I love that you all look so peaceful and content. Isn't that just the best.

This is so cute, beautiful pictures have been drawn of ladies doing just this...I have a group of friends that are crafters, we love to get together and drink tea, and make good talk and create.
Wonderful Post, hugs,Mary
