Sew Much Fun

I've had a busy couple of days but an excellent couple of days. First off, I finished hubby's quilt on Thursday night. I was able to get outside tonight and take some pictures on this gorgeous day.







Monty likes to be near me...especially when I leave for any amount of time.

Well it was my first Sew In today with the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild (MMQG). After chatting back and forth with a bunch of the ladies online, it was great to meet some of them today. I had a great time at the Sew In. I stitch picked my Sewing Organizer and then stitched it properly. I really like how it turned out.





The most exciting news of all is that I won a $50 Gift Card to Mad About Patchwork! I am the winner for the month of June for The Library Project hosted by Adrienne at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts. And I got to meet her today since she's the president of the MMQG! I am just over the moon at how great of day today has been. I didn't have a chance to check Adrienne's blog this morning so I had no idea I won until I went to the Sew In. I am just so excited. I am already drooling over all the fabric at Mad About Patchwork. Check them out and it's a Canadian company ;)

It was one of the greatest starts to a weekend! I just had such a great time at the Sew In. Hoping that I can go to the next one on July 12th. Keeping my fingers crossed :)

Happy Quilting weekend!

    1. Hope to see you at the next Sew In. Did you see our MMQG banner? It's so beautiful :) And I heard a little birdie say that the quilting on it will be magnificent :)
