Gearing Up

Yesterday was a busy day at work.  Which, of course, is always a good thing.  This lovely lady (whose name I forgot-sorry sorry sorry) brought in her Omigosh quilt.  Oh my gosh, it is amazing!  Check it out!
(she and the quilt are less blurry in person)

(a close-up so you can appreciate all those little tiny pieces)

I also finally got around to taking this table runner in to be displayed at the shop.  It has been sitting on my sewing table for a couple of weeks but I have somehow managed to leave it behind every day when I go to work.  Oops!  So I made a special trip today to drop it off.
You can buy a kit for this by calling the shop.

And finally, Lorelei and I had our Girls Only Day.  Too much fun.  We went shopping.  Lorelei got a few bracelets and picked out some to give to friends.  Lorelei also chose the Olive Garden for lunch.  It was so tasty.  Then we went to Incredible Pizza.  Yes, it is a buffet.  But you can just go in and play games.  We raced cars.  We mini-bowled.  We mini-golfed.  We had a great time.  Lorelei had a ton of tickets/points by the time we were through so she got a stuffed killer whale.  Did I remember to take a single picture during all of the fun?  Nope.  But I did snap one when we were headed out the door.

Tonight is the Friday Night Sew-in.  If you're not signed up (and you don't have a hot date tonight) you should.  And tonight is the last night of my giveaway.  Again, if you're not signed up you should be!  See you tonight!

Oh my gosh!!! So how big (or I guess small) are the nine patches and shoe fly blocks in her quilt???

Love the table runner... the colors and the black really make each other pop!

The nine patches are (get this) 1 1/2 inches finished, and the shoo fly is 4 1/2 inches finished. Crazy, eh?

Absolutely amazing quilt!

That quilt is beautiful, but I would never, ever get something like that finished! I wish I had the patience for something that fussy.

That is an unbelievable quilt and truly inspires a future project! Although I think I might make my 9 patches 3"! This was a great quilt to share with us.
