Last weekend a small bunch of DC Modern Quilt Guilders met at Material Girls Quilt Shop in La Plata, MD. Plans were made, fabric was purchased. Those of you who couldn’t make it missed a really, really nice modern shop with super-helpful staff. And a resident baby.
Elle spray-basted 9067 charity quilts. That’s 25 quilts per minute folks; she’s that awesome.
Molly and Elle tried to figure out some presto-mitered-corners way to sew together a double-sided blanket. I hope you figured it out, Molly, because it sounded really promising…
And Leah was hand quilting a most gorgeous rainbow quilt that will be a Christmas gift for her lucky sister. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It is stunning.
Jamie, who organized it all, got a quilt top half-pieced, and I can’t wait to see it finished. That girl has really good taste in fabric…
I popped all the papers out of my hexagons and got them ready for hand quilting. All in all a great day and totally worth all the gas we all used to get out there!
On the way home I had to stop and leap out of the car with my camera; the sideways light of the sunset was so amazing. These leaves just glowed. It was a wonderful day.
