a quilty weekend?

I planned to sew a bunch this weekend.
It rained all day yesterday...good day to stay inside...

and turn this:

with a minor distraction of turning this:


into this:


Emma likes to help
she was being particularly helpful yesterday

wanna bet how long it will stay this tidy?

and then cut this:


(the purple is finally looking right, but the greens are a little green now...)

the plan is to sew more today, but I haven't gotten there quite yet
chores...bleh...

Thursday I went to the local quilt group to see what they are all about and I'm really excited.  They're very involved in the community and are a big, friendly, diverse group and I had a great time, so I'll be joining!

happy quilting,
katie

Looks like you had a BUSY weekend. And Emma was a BIG help! From where I sit - your greens look just fine - but I really need to see them all up on the wall before I can agree or disagree - so will wait patiently for the photos. And yay for you finding a local quilt group to join. You should have fun - at least until one of the older ladies calls you "Honey" - ;))

You seem to have goten quite a bit accomplished besides chores. How could you not with such a cooperative kitty :) Enjoy the quilt group. I'm still looking for one over my way...
