31

Ok, before I get into the body of this post, today is my birthday and I'm 31.  After a discussion at the Metro Mod mtg yesterday, I'm curious to know how old you are.  Please take a second and post an anonymous comment with your age only.
Just trying to get a grasp of blog-reader-demographics.  please play along :)
Ok, now on to the fun stuff..

How wonderful it was that the NYC Metro Mod guild meeting happened to fall on my birthday weekend!  So I baked these, which were so yummy.  The quilting was amazing, as usual.  I am continually amazed at the versatility of these quilters.  One meeting it's EPP hexies, the next a super huge log cabin, and another time it's a totally modern free form block of solid strips.  (Yeah Mary, it's all you).  I love learning about these artisans through just a glimpse of what they choose to share at each meeting.  It's like reading a really good book but you only get to read one chapter every 2 months.  It's not so much drama and suspense, but getting to watch the relationships form and creativity unfold.  I don't think there could have been a better birthday present..
Lisa and I covertly planned to wow them with two finished spiderwebs side by side.  To our surprise, Carol had one to show too!
Nicole's medallion.  Excellent placement of values..

Kim's hand applique.  They give me free-time envy..

I remember discussing this quilt at 15 mins play a few months ago, but I was stunned to put two and two together and finally see that the quilter was Margaret, OUR Margaret.  It was so cool to see this quilt IRL.

Mary's finished quilt from the Threads Together Bee.  I love seeing Bee blocks reach the "finished quilt" stage.

And here's how our scrap challenge project is coming along.  In May I took home a bag of Janet's scraps.  I made a bunch of "housetop" blocks and showed them off at the October meeting, but didn't know what to do with them after that.  Andrea quickly volunteered to add on to it, and we passed it on to Victoria yesterday.  So it has become sort of a collaboration/Round Robbin by accident.  Love it!  Can't wait to see what it looks like by February.  If I had to guess Victoria's path, I'd say she'll either slash it, or add on to make it king size.. what's your prediction?

  13. 39. In California years, that's about 187. The good news is that being a Californian means you still get to act like a drunken 12 year and dress like one, too.

    Interesting post.

    I won't be slashing your top all up my dear... I may add a few more in my own blocks but know for sure, it will still be in one piece... and I will force myself not to make it King size...
    it's actually done already... let me know if I should send it on, or send it back...

  23. I am 51 and been quilting since high school.during the 1976 quilting rehash I vowed to make a quilt like they did in the "olden days". Back then it was cardboard templates traced and hand stitched seams. I still have that quilt.
    Happy Happy Birthday! Love your work.

  27. Happy birthday again!

    Ha, me, versatile? Thanks! It's too hard to make decisions, I like too much, so each project is often way different from the last. My bed looks insane piled high with clashing blankets, but it keeps me from getting bored!

    I'm 31 too, until February.
