Weekend Fun and progress

I know the weekend seems so long ago, but what a fun weekend it was! Really it started last Thursday. My husband's birthday was Thursday, but we chose to go to an extra special dinner to celebrate 10 years since our first date. What an incredible decade it has been. In those years he taught me to race cars, I taught him how to grill, and we built a life with three gorgeous kids that make us laugh until our sides hurt.

On Sunday, I was able to hang out with my fellow guild members of the Triangle MQG for a sew-in. I was able to chat with some members that I had only spoken to briefly before which is always refreshing and inspiring.  I am thrilled that I was able to get almost all of my diamonds cut for the Emerge quilt from Stitched in Color's Angled class.  I am loving this class so far, all about sewing with triangles, diamonds, and various other angled cuts.  This week we will be working on a quilt based on the lonestar found in many quilts and I love my fabric choices.  I have been holding these fabrics (Joel Dewberry) for a while just waiting for the perfect project.

Next up is cutting my fabric for the C + S Basics Swap which just arrived.  I am loving diving into some fresh fabrics!  What are you diving into this week?

Linking up with I Quilt @ Pretty Bobbins - see button on the right - and Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.


  1. Lovely fabrics - they should make a great quilt.

  2. Happy belated birthday to your husband. Time really flies, doesn't it? The sew-in with your guild sounds like a lovely time, too. Getting fabric pre-cut is always a big win in my book.

  3. Love that family picture! Your fabrics for the quilt are so pretty.

  4. Love Joel Dewberry - can't wait to see what you're making!
