This past weekend marked the end of my self imposed hiatus from sewing, blogging and visiting Blogger, Pinterest and Flickr.

Saturday was our guild's Sew Day, and it was great to hang out with like minded folks and feed off their enthusiasm and inspiration.

Heather, our out of state member, discussed color theory as it pertains to quilt making. I have been waiting years for her presentation, and it was worth the wait ;-) Thanks Heather! It was great seeing you. We sure do miss you!

If you have attended Sew Day with me, you will know that I don't get much sewing done as I prefer to catch up with my friends and see what projects they are working on. However, I did get some sewing done once I went home.

I pieced July's Block of the Month, finished another 36-patch block and added two more sections to my Peace, Love and Happiness quilt top.

Now that I have done some sewing and a blog post, next up is to see what all of you have been up to! Happy Stitching!

  1. Welcome back! It looks like you're right back in the swing of things now! (Love those pretty blue pinwheel blocks!)

    I haven't done much sewing or anything else the last two weeks because my daughter-in-law and grandson were here visiting. They went home on Saturday, so this week I'm back to my normal routine!

  2. So glad you're back..we missed you!. Btw for storing, hanging, and tracking in the bins purposes, quilt registration numbers need to be 1/2" tall and in the lower right corner. If you like writing on sleeves, make all 4 and write on the bottom right one. Making four corners is a bit more work so you could also simply write the number in the lower right at the bottom of the quilt, or all your info there, instead. As long as it is very easy to read on the fabric used. Volunteers have to match info to quilt itself, over and over. And even if pigs don't fly...papers do ;) Ever watch their fast motion video as they hang them in Houston..hilarious, but sure made me appreciate the work they all do!

  3. Oops, forgot the example!

  4. Welcome back, Rene', good to see you!
    I looks like you did get quite a lot done on your Sew Day, I'd say!

  5. Hi! I'm with you- I don't get much sewing done when I'm with a group- too much visiting and other distractions! But about a distraction!!! :D

  6. Welcome back! I really like that cross of pinwheels...

    I probably need to impose one of those hiatuses on myself one of these days...

  7. I am SO glad you are back from you hiatus!!! Your work always inspires me :)I can't wait to see your Peace, Love, & Happiness quilt know how much I love that design!!! Maybe I can rejoin "blogland" once school is finished, that is of course if I can figure out the new blogger...YIKES!!! Love to all...

  8. Welcome back! Love the asterisk block. Sounds like you had a lovely day with your guild buddies.
