Great Day!

Had SO (maybe that should be SEW) much fun today! Three of my quilting "buds" came over for a sew-in. Loretta, Peggy, and my beautiful granddaughter, Jenn, brought their machines and a project or two to my house and we sat and sewed all day.

My goal for the day was to make a cover for my major expensive (50 cents!) pocket calendar. Used my quilting software to print off a foundation pieced pattern for the Ohio Star block - but I wanted it to be three inches square. I thought foundation (paper) piecing would be easier than cutting those tiny pieces and sewing them together. I am very pleased with the result!

Thanks, guys, for a great day!

MY chair

Sorry, Mom. It's MY chair! Guess you'll have to sit on the floor!
