Off to the Patched Works mom and I went for Caren's Completer Club. Mom and I finally learned to join the ends of binding without folding one edge under the other. Finally the nice diagonal seam that I've been hoping for! I'm pretty sure I'll be able to remember how it was done and do it again and again.
Julie the owner of Patched Works had the best costume that I think I've ever seen. She was a sock monkey in honor of the Moda Sock Monkey Fabric Line.
Julie's Mom, Teri was in a giant Moda Pillow case with a tiara. The Queen of Pillow Cases! How awesome is that? Oh, and ladies, I think I've decided for our Quilt Retreat we all should don Tiara's!!
I got the bindings put on both of Eli's Baby Quilts. Now they just need labels and they can be dropped off and love
The best part of the evening was that my mom's friend Karen stopped by to say hello. She knew where we were going to be because of my blog. She brought along her signature quilt. When she was going through Chemo everyone made a block and signed it. Mom and I had yet to see the quilt put together. It's georgeous! Sue did a fantastic job putting the top together and Chris's quilting was great. It was sooooo good to see Karen. =)
