May Sew Day

Catching up around here. Nothing like a holiday weekend to pack in the fun. Hollywood made me the cutest basket of kitchen stuff for Mother's Day. She knows what I like! The little cups under the anti bacterial bottle are actually silicone measuring cups. So cute and colorful. I used the tongs today, but I've kept the basket in tact because it was so darling.  I'll dust it off next weekend.

Sew Day for our guild was a blast as usual. The block of the month was so much fun I made two! The block pattern is called Anita's Arrowhead and is a cinch to make. Our color scheme was green and gray.

 Look at all the quilters!
Cara is making a gorgeous quilt for her husband. He's been waiting patiently for a quilt of his very own. I believe he's going to flip over this beauty. We were all drooling over her fabric choices.

Pat had a fun one going up on the design wall. Some of my favorite colors too. It's going to be king size. No biggie. Pat ain't scared. These guild gals awe me all the time. Quilt warriors, all of them. 

I played around with a Red Riding Hood charm pack. I added in a few squares to round it all out. A few borders and it will make a cute baby quilt. Our guild is making them for a local organization.

I was also able to get this pinwheel quilt top basted and quilted at Sew Day. Look how close my batting is! It was a spare piece that barely fit. Worked out fine. I pieced this quilt back in the day and unearthed the top for our guild's UFO challenge. The Pinwheel Baby Quilt is a Moda Bake Shop pattern from 2009. It's a fun pattern and suitable for beginners. The edge triangles are prairie points, which were really easy. I don't always let my tops age...oh, who am I kidding. I just prefer the piecing part. At least it hadn't yellowed. 

And it's finished! I got it bound during a thunderstorm. Here it is before its bath.

A co-worker is having a baby, so this one has a home. The mom was a week past her due date when we left work Friday, so I'm hoping baby girl cooperated and decided to meet the world over the holiday weekend. It's a first baby, so lots of excitement. 

Julie helped me figure out quilting the border at Sew Day. Simple, but it got the job done.
