February Meeting of Stitchin' Sisters

We had our February meeting of Stitchin' Sisters last Wednesday, so I thought I would take a few moments to tell you how it went.

We had a BLAST!

There were nine ladies there in addition to Olivia and I.  It was SO cold and windy, so I'm so happy that everyone was able to make it.  We're tough here in North Dakota!

Lenae brought the snacks.  Chocolate and mini muffins and lots of other good stuff!



We had a little demo on cutting...


And more cutting...from beginners.


One of the things that I LOVE about this group is that we have so many beginners.

We also had a demo from Lenae on Disappearing 9-Patch, so one quilter decided to start one that night.



We have another mother/daughter pair (besides me and Liv).



And a pair of sisters...one an experienced quilter and the other just beginning!


And here's my friend that I infected with the Quilt Pox.  She and another lady braved the drifting snow-covered roads to come!


Several of us are doing a sampler quilt, and there were blocks finished by the end of the night.

Liv didn't get pics of those, but we'll have pics next time.

I can't say how excited I am that this group has started off with such a bang.  I can't wait for next month!

It's Bismarck Day today, so I won't get much done, I think.

I'm still not feeling up to par, so I'm trying to be good and rest a lot...but it's frustrating because I just want to quilt.  So, instead of quilting, I'm doing a lot of dreaming about what quilts I want to do this year.

Hopefully, I'll be able to get some quilts basted soon so I can get some finishes under my belt!

Have a quilty day!

Looks like tons of fun. So nice that Olivia is interested in quilting, too. Have a good day in Bismarck. We have Fargo day. I only hope we can make it back home as the wind is blowing again and it doesn't take much to drift our roads shut here.
