Hard to choose just one favorite part of the weekend.  
All I know is I had a blast and left feeling inspired.
Who's ready for QuiltCon???!!!!!!


  1. I will continue to live vicariously, all these amazing events, through blogs and IG! One day......

  2. Wow, what a wonderful weekend! Wish I could have attended. I love seeing all the happy faces and brightly colored projects people are working on. Thanks so much for the "hi" from my hero Anna Maria!

  3. Oh, my word! I'm speechless. And that autographed sewing machine. Sigh.

  4. That autographed sewing machine is the BEST! Consider me quite envious...

  5. It was a great time, I am so glad I got to know you better.

  6. SO jealous! Love that shot of all the Sew Together bags... I think I've made 4 of them at this point and holy moly can you cram a lot of stuff in there!

    Just finished catching up - and thank you for the lovely holiday card! :-)

  7. Too fun--and a new machine, too boot! What a gas!

    Yep--heading to QuiltCon, so let's definitely have a meet-up. From our MCMs, Cindy, Anne and I are going, and I think Linda is too. Know of anyone else?
