The UFO number for last month was Number 1 – my quilt was a fairly small baby/child’s quilt I made from a pattern I wrote several years ago and taught in Las Vegas. I finished it up and showed it at the meeting. I also turned it in for Community Service.
Number 3 was chosen for this next month – due in August. Unfortunately it is my Swoon quilt. The top is finished and it is large – about 90 inches square. I am going out of town for 10 days (going to Las Vegas with my sister to sew for 5 of the days) plus I need to finish my Christmas quilt for Christmas in July. I still need to find a back for it. I have a lot of fabric from Sweetwater’s Authentic line that I made the blocks from.
Here it is right before I added the last border. I hope I can get it done in time.

What a wonderful day we had yesterday at the Allatoona Guild. Our guest speaker/teacher was Julia Wood of The Hexie Blog. She was great and I was so happy to finally meet her. Here we are together.
Julia entertained us with hexie stories and lots of hexie quilts. After a wonderful potluck lunch we had a 3-hour class with circle hexies and also EPP. Fun!
Here are a few of the quilts that she brought from Alabama to share with us.
She brought more quilts but I kept forgetting to take photos since I was so interested in looking at the quilts and listening to her stories.

Only one more row before I can start putting the Christmas Row Quilt together. Of course the last row is the reindeer and it is by far the most complicated. I have started sewing the strips that will be sewn into the reindeer. Lots of baggies being filled.
