Yesterday, we met for some quilting time at my house.
First, I took them on a tour of Superior Threads, where I work.
(Dawn, me, Sherri)
We came back to my house for a small luncheon before heading into the sewing room for the afternoon. I gave both Dawn and Sherri a package of Texture Magic so they could try it in some of their projects. You know how I love Texture Magic. I wanted my friends to see how fun it is to work with this new product now being offered through Superior Threads.
I made Chicken Salad Croissants for lunch. (see recipe below).
The last time we got together, Nanette of Freda's Hive was with us. We were missing you yesterday Nanette! In your honor, both Sherri and Dawn worked on your patterns.
Sherri was making some of your house patterns out of Halloween fabric.
She also made 9-patches out of some very beautiful fabrics.
Sherri brought Show and Tell of her latest quilt.
And Dawn worked on Nanette's pattern "In The Leafy Treetops".
Made me wish I was working on those too!
The fabric line is called Black, White and Red All Over by Windham Fabrics.
I've been wanting to make a red and black quilt for some time. Every time I see these colors I think of Kim of Bitty Bits and Pieces. Knowing her, she has probably made several projects out of these fabrics already!
