Let's Get Quilting - May 26, 2015 Edition

 [Leanne and Kaytlyn Anderson]

Welcome back to another week. The holiday weekend was lovely and the weather was gorgeous here in NYC.  We are getting over the rush of Quilt Market and are planning our next one. Quilt Market in October will be a special one for Henry Glass and its sister companies. Jaftex, the parent company of these divisions will be celebrating its 85th anniversary! Look out for some special fun events in the next few months.



Congratulations to last week's winner of the Let's Get Quilting giveaway, Cathy Scanlon. You won the bundle of Buggy Barn Basics. We will be contacting you soon!

Today we are going to give away a bundle of Clearwater Critters by Leanne Anderson of The Whole Country Caboodle.  Leanne always has a big, warm smile at Quilt Market. We love to see what she designs.



[Leanne and designer Mary Jane Carey of Holly Hill Design at Schoolhouse]

I spent the holiday weekend gardening while the sun shone and sewing a quilt top in the evenings. We also managed to squeeze in a few barbeques. The weather was super!

MoeWest said...

We don't say that S*** word around here after the May long weekend! I'm glad to say that it's warm and the garden is growing.

I attended a friend's birthday party and cancer free celebration. It was inspiring. I also attended another of my friend's bbq events. Now I am off to the work in another city.

I sewed this past weekend! I had some leftover bits from a quilt I has just finished so I put them together in to a table mat and runner for my kitchen. I still have to quilt them but at least they are ready!

After attending Mass and then leaving flowers at the cemetary, I planted tomatoes, squash and cucumbers and did other yard work. That night I cut out some patchwork blocks. It was a beautiful day.

I worked cattle with family and friends in the mud on Monday. The rest of the weekend we were trying to stay dry, and I did some of that in my sewing room. This is a cute fabric collection, and I saw a great cow potholder!

We grilled out, played in the garden and relaxed.

Renea said...

We finished planting our garden and did some yardwork. Our son, daughter-in-law and one year old granddaughter came to visit. I also did some sorting and cleaning in my sewing room. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

Debbie Rogowski said...

I really wanted to move along on a bunch of different quilt projects this weekend so I would have 'sit down' work to do during the week. So I finished one on the longarm and added binding, now I can hand finish the binding. Cut some blocks, so I can mark and pin for a BOM. Counted cut fabric pieces for another and figured out what i need to finish assembly on a Stack and Whack (oh the horror of this quilt but it is gorgeous) I think I did more but by 1:00 on Monday I was still in my PJ's and the phone was ringing I needed to be here and there visiting ... Great weekend!!

Margaret said...

I watched and played with my great grand daughter so her parents could go canoeing

Donna W said...

We stayed home and just relaxed.

GranChris said...

I did yardwork, went to a fabric store, church and a picnic. Oh yes it's 90 here so definitely no snow. Love the fabric.

I attended church on Sunday. And spent the majority of my weekend quilting. Of course.
