|Huge quilt, custom quilted.|
The big purchase was a new Janome 3160 from the quilt shop down the road from the hotel. I traded in my ailing 6500 Professional, which weighs a ton, for the lightweight travel model. In my excitement to get sewing with the new machine, I sewed through my finger. Oops! A little blood and a bandaid later, all was well and I got on with the sewing. I made two charity quilt tops and a big pile of patchwork posy blocks. Mine are made with Route 66 fabric instead of floral, but they will look good in a quilt for my daughter.

The girls had a nice party at my hostess' home one night, with pizza, wine and birthday cake!
At guild on Friday morning, all former Order of the Fat Quarter winners were honored and given a rose. The new recipient, Audrey, got her big bouquet and golden fat quarter to a standing ovation.

If that doesn't make you smile, I don't know what will! See you later.
