Food, food and more food! (and Lorna!)

Well, I don't think I'll be eating much for the next few days!

I've had two guild meetings the last two days....and a potluck meal at each of the meetings. So much food!

There was a festive air at both meetings, everyone chattering away looking forward to Summer. Almost the same excitement as when we meet again in September.

I've been looking forward to yesterday's meeting in particular since we had Lorna McMahon from Sew Fresh Quilts as our guest speaker. 

I knew I'd want to buy a pattern or two of Lorna's, and it was so difficult to choose....but I did narrow it down to three...

We got to see all of her quilts in person.....

...and listen to Lorna talk about her quilts.....she is such an entertaining speaker! Thanks, Lorna, for a great trunk show!

As for stitching....finally, I have finished this block for my Life is Beautiful quilt....

I've been working on this block since before Christmas. I haven't enjoyed it. The only thing I like about it is that it is done! Ha!

So nice to start on the next block...

I'm linking up today with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social, with Susan at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers and with Mama Spark's World for WIPs With Friends.


  1. Your block is adorable and how fun that you got to meet Lorna! I hope to be able to do that some day too.

  2. Hi Sandra,
    Wow - that is a lot of quilts Lorna brought with her. I am sorry you don't like your block - I think it is well done, and I love the message. ~smile~

  3. I had such a wonderful time at the meeting yesterday, too, Sandra! It was so much fun.... And yes, the food was delicious! Your stitching looks lovely. Maybe this block will grow on you!

  4. You did a great job on the block, though I can understand why you're happy it's done. Thanks for sharing it on Midweek Makers!
