Love That Tuesday!

The Sunshine Club welcomed Kayla (pronounced k EYE la) and Arturo today as they skip between the end of school and the beginning of camp. It was fun to get the younger generation's view of the world as we chatted and enjoyed a few chocolates. I worked on hand hemming the binding of that Lost & Found Log Cabin quilt.

Check out that super 1950's vintage basket of sewing supplies most generously donated by Sheila, too!
 I left early to join up with The Farmer's Wife group at the Evergreen Country Primitives Quilt shop in Milton, New Hampshire.

There were plenty of goodies, cookies and coffeecake to supplement your own box lunch. But the very best part of the day was spending time with fellow quilters as we pieced our blocks by hand.

Our hostess-with-the-mostest, the shop's owner, Camille Arnone, is fabulous at making everybody feel at ease. She took my picture of me with my half sewn Bat Wings block.

The fabrics were a Marcus Brothers and a tiny red/tan gingham from a scrap bag donated by Buddy at the Senior Center. In studying antique quilts that are for sale on Ebay, I have noticed that ginghams do appear occasionally.

This is my second Bat Wing block (that is unfinished) and the picture below is the one that is done. It needs a good pressing so that those center tan points don't look so chopped off, LOL!

While I was at the shop, I couldn't resist selecting a couple indigos, and a tattersall cream, and a tan paisley by Paula Barnes. Too yummy! I had to possess them!

Tomorrow is supposed to be unholy hot, hazy, & humid. I plan on hiding indoors beside the AC and taking trips down cellar where it is deliciously cool.

Stay cool and quilt on!

Hi there Vic! Give Camille a hug for me the next time you see her! Hope you're going to join us some Friday in the not too distant future! i'd like to actually get the time to visit with you, and my ambulance driver, Maureen is feeling a little bit gypped, since she didn't get to see your Farmer's Wife blocks! Plus you need to see my impressive scar! Stay cool!
