Lots of Labor this Weekend

But no finished quilts.  I did do a lot of embroidery.  I made 5 labels and two other things for some other projects (to be done at a later date). 














I also pinned 3 quilts (2 charity quilts) and the other my strip quilt I started in Cambria a few months ago.  I also finished the top of the block of the month quilt that I won 2 guild meetings ago.  I would have pinned that too but I don't know what I'm going to do for the back and I don't have enough pins. 

I also took a class sponsored by our guild taught by Terry Waldron.  She taught her scavenger hunt quilting class which was a lot of fun and I learned quite a bit.  It was more of a design class so no sewing was done but I do have my top ready to be sewn down.  I had no idea what I was going to do with the found objects and she gave us ways to get started and create.  I might tweak it some more.  I searched blogs and got inspired and got ideas for other things to do with it. We'll see. 

I thought alot about what I'm going to say at the next guild meeting.  I was asked to do a trunk show.  Since I've never done this before I have been pondering in what order to present my quilts.  Still haven't come to any conclusions.  I kind of wrote the beginning - you know - what made me start quilting, etc.  but  what way to go after that I'm still thinking about. 

Anyway - back to work tomorrow so I must hit the hay.  I feel like I had a very productive weekend.  Love it!

My suggestion would be to show your quilts as you've progressed. the first ones you made at first and then through to the most recent.

Wow Barb, I sewed on Labor day too, but did not get that much accomplished:) Agree with the above comment about your trunk show.
