A Day Spent With Expatchers

Tuesday was a delightful day. Not only was it a beautiful day weatherwise, but it was also a day spent with friends. Friends who have shared ups and downs. Friends who conquered living in a foreign country. Friends who will give you their honest opinion, even if you don't ask! It was a sharing time, a working time as well as celebration--of my birthday!
From the hands of Sandy, this lovely grouping of dainty flowery prints that will evolve into "Summer at Mom's"--a free insert to one of the major quilting publications.
Our hostes was Linda, who had displayed on her guest bed this wonderful yo-yo quilt. Who can resist yo-yo's. I neglected to ask her the maker, but it is quite involved and has a nice layout.
Annette, who was excited to be making her first Binky quilt. She cut the squares at home and now was progressing to the sewing machine.
Brenda, was busy making burp cloths and receiving blankets for an upcoming baby shower. What a wonderful gift to receive!
Karen was sewing away on her Binky quilt top. Sorry, there is no photo of the finished top.
Debby received her pumpkin quilt from the quilting hands of Judy and was sewing on the binding. Give a look at the pumpkin quilting--
This is a great panto and perfect.
Another returned quilted baby blanket (from Judy) is this popcorn design. We all agreed this is a super delightful design. The backing was Minky fabric--soft and textured for little hands. But, it was also a good match for the top---
Monkeys!! Monkeys!! Monkeys!!
Brenda was trying to decide which Minky fabric to use as backing--go for the green, Brenda!! And since it was October birthday celebration day, Moi' receives fat quarters of choice, which was anything goes! The gals made great selections; each varied and unique as the giver. Now, to let those fabrics age properly!
Thanks Expatchers!! It was a good day--friends, food, and fabric--what could be better?
