    A group of us went to Lincoln NE to the quilt museum. They held open house with lots of demonstrations and lectures. What a fun day. A car load of friends came up from Kansas so we got visit and go to lunch with old friends. Neat day and came home very tired but very happy.

    I'm spending the day with my step-granddaughters teaching them to sew strippy quilt blocks with my Singer 99k hand cranked machine. They are having fun going through my scrap bags.

    Lucky you and all that get to go. I sure wish I could go to a quilt show. I have a real bad back and can't stand for very long. But all have lots of fun.

    I went to a couple of quilt shops. I found a kit (like I need another one)& it is a sunflower quilt. It has applique and I haven't done much but I loved the quilt. I also bought some fat quarters. Had a very nice day

    We had a great time the the Quilters' Day Out in Lexington, KY.
    We had two speakers. Karen Witt and her daughter brought the quilts from their new book "Like Mother, Like Daughter". Rita Hardman also gave a tutorial on use of the Square in a Square Ruler. We also enjoyed a trunk show of numerous quilts made fellow Kentucky Quilters. Of course, there were several vendors available. I bought sooo many fat quarters for projects later this year. Oops, almost forgot I finally one a door price -- a magnifier that attaches to an Ott Lite. This should come in very handy for hand quilting. Already looking forward to the one next year.

    I spent the entire day with several friends in a "Come Quilt With Me" day at a certain favorite quilting store in ABQ, NM. We had lots of fun!

    It was held in the Fayette County Extension Office. The Quilter's Guild of the Bluegrass of Fayette County was the host. There were vendors, show and tell, speakers, demonstrations and lots of good fellowship with other quilters. It's alsways the 3rd Saturday in March.

    Didn't even know that was today, but did do some quilting. Almost finished two blocks for my sampler quilt and cut out 4 blocks to make for the "Just One Star can comfort a soldier" project sponsored by Moda and Semper Fi Fund. My first charity donation, hopefully first of many.

    I skipped out of work early to go to Quilter's Day Out in Clarksville, In. On the way I stopped at Big Lots and ran across a Pan Bono book for $3 (like I need another book), couldn't pass it up. QDO was wonderful, lots of great quilts and people. Can hardly wait til next year. Good job ladies of the guild!!!

    I was a slug all day, but couldn't let the day pass un-stitched. My older son and I pieced some blocks from scraps from a quilt I made 20 years ago! We used our new #57 foot and it really helps get that perfect 1/4".

    I bought 7 yards of periwinkle blue cotton satin, that will be a quilt back. Maybe I should call it a coverlet back? I just knew it had been waiting at St. Vinnies, just for me. I also bought the final fabric for the prom dress I am making at Joann's today. I will post pictures when I am finished. (Does it count for National Quilting day if I bought pre-quilted fabric?????) lol!

    Had a 4 hour drive to the International Quilt Study Center in Lincoln, Nebraska for National Quilt Day. Amazing exhibit, wonderful lectures and demos. Made a little shop hop out of it also. Such a wonderful place to have in Lincoln. They do fantastic work and do provide students a chance to get a degree in textiles.
