Earlier this week, I worked for a friend. It keeps me out of trouble and helps her out. Yesterday, it was off to Noah's Ark with Trevor. We had fun together. Today, finally, was a day for my own agenda. I dyed a little and started ironing all I dyed last week. Still managing to do something quilt-related for at least 5 minutes everyday. Yay! Wait til you see the baby quilt I'm working on for some friends. Really cute! I'll post pics when it's done.

The last picture shows the start of my bucket dyeing, a technique learned from Chris D. I layer up three hunks of fabric, one-at-a-time, pouring dye and soda ash on each layer. I also used red and yellow on subsequent layers. I can't wait to see how it looks!
I got Trevor's Puget Sound quilt done, finally. He's going to be able to sleep under it tonight. He is overjoyed! I feel good having completed a UFO!

It was great to see some old friends I haven't seen in a long time. There were many new faces at the meeting, too, but like all quilters, they were all friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed catching up with my friends and hope to see them again soon. Gayle--I'm willing to come to your house for a visit!
I did crack up at the picture of me from my year as president. I was a baby then! Only 25 years old and about 25 lbs less.
I was impressed with their show and tell. They did a UFO challenge, signing a contract back in January to finish a UFO by the June meeting. I'm thinking our guild should do that! The range of colors, techniques, patterns, etc., was amazing. I love show and tell. Quilters love ALL quilts, from beginner's first efforts to award-winning pieces. I learned a new acronym--NBS--Never Been Started. I've got a few of those, with the pattern and fabric all set aside to start someday.
Thanks Crazy Quilters for inviting me and I'm looking forward to the 25th Anniversary celebration of their show!
