Sewing With Friends

I feel so blessed to have had a day to spend with friends who love to sew and talk and laugh together.  I had the privilege of traveling to Coupeville for a Sit and Sew.  I was there from 9 am until 8:30 pm or so.  It is an hour and a half drive for me to get there but driving north through Skagit Valley and across Deception Pass bridge is a beautiful drive.  I always enjoy spending time with this fun group of sewers and quilters.

This is the project I focused on for most of the day.  I used a couple of Riley Blake Layer Cakes and made the Tumblers Quilt from "More Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts" by Pam and Nicky Lintott.  I think I might add a little random applique to the plain blocks.  This pattern really showcases this fun fabric.

This is the picture of this quilt that is in the book.

I did a little work on my Daisy Days project while at the Sit and Sew.  My blocks are ready to piece together.

A few of us are doing the Adornit block of the month at the Sit and Sew, I have had some fun with this so far.

Another fun part of the day was visiting Melanie's quilt shop.  She had ordered this fabric for me earlier this year, I am excited about starting work on the Snapshots quilt at the Fat Quarter Shop.  
The weather is beautiful here today and I am going to head outside for a while and do a little weed pulling.  Have a great weekend.
