Quilt Day and W.I.B.W.O.

A few weeks ago, St. Paul's had its semi-annual Quilt Day.  
As always there was great food 



excellent company (here's Bobbi),


and a variety of projects to admire.

(Pat's fascinating kaleidoscope)


(makes me want to get out black and white fabrics and PLAY)

 
(A bad photo of a great quilt by Bobbi! Hope this is "clickable" for detail.
I will find just the right project for my Kaffe collection... soon...)

My progress for the day was to
1. determine that the mystery quilt top I'd completed needed 
different binding than what I'd chosen (when it was still a mystery).  
This one is next up for the long-armer.


 2. pin-baste the 30's repro V-block baby quilt
I recently started hand-quilting this, just for funsies.


3. lay out and begin to sew together the blocks for my scrap 9-patch HST top.
Top is now finished. I have to piece the backing and sandwich.
Planning to quilt it on my Lizzie (QE4) as my guild comfort quilt.


Since that day, I've been keeping busy too.  Even finished up a couple of projects:  

bound the Traditions charm quilt
      












quilted and bound Jelly/Fish/Race












and bound A-Tisket A-Tasket (a block swap quilt).

I set the blocks into a top a couple of years back and just had quilted by my talented long-armer.













Almost finished with a couple more tops too.  Saving that for later.

Too bad you weren't more productive-- NOT! Good grief, woman, you rival the legendary Turbo! Love all of the quilts, but I am particularly drawn to that retro V.

This is an excellent report!

Love what you have done with your batik basket blocks - I like the diamond blocks to give the baskets their own spaces. My goodness, some lovely blocks came out of that swap!

Looking forward to meeting up when you are here later in the year!
