This was the view over the porch rail as evening fell on Saturday –
The sun on the western side of the porch was perfect, and gave all passers-by quite the show!
So many beautiful quilts were brought by the ladies, and it was wonderful to see each one -including many Grassy Creek mystery finishes! WONDERFUL!
Just think of how many pieces cut each quilt represents!
All of the hours sewing – most of it virtually together over the past year.
All of the hours quilting and binding!
How many of us have held our sanity together by a thread in the past 15 months?
I know that has been the case for me.
When life seams to be coming undone in every way possible – the pieces I sew together hold together through it all. Unless I sew it wrong, of course!
Melissa has been sew busy!! Love it!
And that’s not all – these 12 wonderful women have all embarked on a Straits of Mackinac Journey while here at Quiltville Inn.
Blocks, sashings and borders, oh my!
These were the photos of progress taken yesterday while the ladies were beginning to pack up and load their cars – How can the time pass so quickly?
And there were many strip swaps happening too to increase variety!
Miss Ruth is SO CUTE!
Even while asking me – “Do you notice something?!”
She sewed the wrong ends together in the center. OOPS!
Nothing that a short visit with a seam ripper can’t fix!
I can’t wait to see these quilts next visit!
They are ALL so beautiful!
Each one different enough that you can tell – 3 different quilters made these blocks!.
I will remember the wonderful walk me had!
And the gorgeous trillium blooming on the hillside!
Saturday night was also meant for this!
Fire pit sitting and s’mores made with fudge stripe cookies.
The perfect amount of chocolate, no crumbling, and much less mess.
Thank you, Scrappy Sisters of Tennessee!
I loved having you visit – and I’ll see you next time!
Needless to say – not sewing by ME happened at all over the weekend. I did get a binding put on and I have started to hand sew it down.
TODAY I have promised myself there will be machine time – I have those Rocky Road to Kansas blocks to set together – and hopefully I can start the assembly on that top today.
But those Cabin Corners blocks are also calling me – what’s a girl to do?
How about your weekend? Did you get some stitching time in?

Quiltville Quote of the Day –
Vintage Chinese coins quilt shared by Allison.
We had a huge rain during the middle of the night that soaked the earth and this morning the woods around me are full of new green leaves and abundant birdsong.
There is so much awesomess to this morning all ready!
However you spend your Monday, I hope you take some time to notice the peace and beauty around you and just how awesome it is!
