on Thursday 4 of us started out on a shop hop collecting row by row experience patterns/kits. Then we got to Missouri and found out they were doing a shop hop along US 36 so we added those shops to our agenda. We went across the state in 2 days spent the night in Cameron MO and went to Missour Star Quilt Co Friday afternoon amazing place. We had a wonderful time. We plan to do this again next year..

now I can post pictures of the baby quilts I have made. In June on got a great nephew and a great niece 9 days apart. my 2 nieces that are sisters had these babies. will be so nice for them to grow up together and they live close together. I went to see them yesterday for the first time. It was hard to wait but wanted to give the families time to settle in with a new baby. We had a great day yesterday snuggling both of them Here is a picture of them on their quilts. Hope to see them again soon.

I hosted a retreat at my house this past weekend. Had a great group of ladies attend. they got a lot done. I do the cooking and cleaning up they just sew. I am here to help them if they needed/wanted it. Helped 2 ladies start a pineapple quilt from a panel they bought the kits at LQS . three of them brought featherweight machines to use. makes me want to get mine out and sew on it.... maybe I will soon. here is a picture of the lunch I made on Saturday so fun to use different dishes and fix pretty meals. contact me to schedule your retreat and get a lot of sewing done.
I have been working on the row by row experience this is fun. I have put together 8 rows from 8 shops now to get it quilted hopefully today and tomorrow so that I can get it to a shop that hasn't had a winner yet.... have acquired several kits for these which I am going to make into wall hangings. here is a picture of it unquilted.
