Friends & Swaps

I had the most fun sewing day today at a mini-retreat at Trisha's house! We met originally because I sent her my quilt in Doll Quilt Swap 6, and it turned out that she lives about 45 minutes away from me. We met in person recently at Jacquie's trunk show, and worked out a sew-in for today- she's the sweetest, and her kids are too. In another twist of fate, her kids have the same names as me and my husband, so the conversation kept us "in stitches" (snicker) all morning! I got some work done on a old WIP, too, in between laughing, looking at quilts, talking about fabric and eating the yummy lunch she made.

Also, I just finished my June block for the Stash Busting Bee International. It is for Adrienne, who sent me her quilt in the Doll Quilt Swap 5. The blues and greens she requested challenged me since my stash leans warm, but I think the result lovely, like seaglass. I took this picture on my lawn chair, last week when it was sunny. Now, it's rainy and grey, but that should mean that I have more time indoors for sewing and swapping and more fun!


  1. Sounds like a great time! Trisha is the best and her kids are too. I hope to do the same soon. Love the quilt!

  2. What a fun day! So glad you came. Looking forward to doing it again. Your block is gorgeous!
