Fabric and friends..........

I spent the morning on errands, the afternoon yesterday sewing pieces for a QOV quilt.  Then last night I went to the local quilt guild meeting to see a friend giving the program.  This is what I bought from her.  Can you guess who it was?

 

It was the lovely Laura Wasilowski from Artfabrik fame!  She has such a sense of humor and shares it abundantly in her program.  We all got our daily dose of laughter.  I have to share our photo that was taken last night.
While I watched "Castle" and the news I got three of the bright X and + blocks sewn.  I'm going to like this version of the quilt much more than the batik blocks I have made.

Oh, that would have been so fun to hear and meet Laura!
I have to admit I love those blocks in those fabrics!

Laura did a trunk show and then a workshop for our guild a couple of years ago...it was so much fun!

What a SUPER photo! I agree - I like this grouping of blocks much more than the first set.

I am just a tad jealous. I have never met Laura other than thru the internet and on TV. I have a feeling if we got together we would get in trouble. Ha ha.

How fun! Do you have a particular project in mind for the yarn? I love the way this latest version of the X and + quilt is coming.

What do you plan to do with the yarn?

MamaT said...

I think Laura is scheduled to be at our guild in Tulsa next year. I can hardly wait! How nice that she's a friend of yours!

I knew that was Laura from the fabric and yarn..ha...I was so excited when she came to Charlotte, that after it was all over, I went up to thank her and tripped backwards and broke my elbow. ha. I hope she sang for you:)
