A Fun Day At Quilt Guild

Yesterday was our monthly meeting of the Music City Modern Quilter's Guild and we had a wonderful workshop (and a great lunch) and learned how to do the cathedral windows block by machine. I've always loved this pattern but thought it had to be done by hand. Not that I have the mental block I once had about hand work but I do save my hand work for my Grandmother's Flower Garden lap quilt that is an on going project of mine. I joke and say I'll have it completed by age 60. So yesterday I learned the quick way of doing the cathedral windows. Jan was our teacher and she did a great job and we all enjoyed this technique. This is what I accomplished in class and hope to finish this up in the next few days. I plan on this becoming a table runner. 

Picked up a few new Christmas fabrics
last week and can't wait to start working on several
table runners using these. 

I am in a UFO swap and my swap partner sent me two blocks. 
These sweet traditional blocks sat on my machine for
about 2 weeks waiting for me to get over a bad cold and to 
also think of what I wanted to do. 

 It came to me today that I'd not done any of my
version of crazy quilting and I had a lot of fun 
getting this little table runner done. It's all ready to 
be shipped to it's new home.

Love your cathedral windows you did. The inner fabric is wonderful! It's going to be a great table runner.
I was just thinking about you when your blog popped up! Glad you are feeling a bit better now.
