🚗 A Quilter's Road Trip 🚙

And a quilter's DH's road trip! We took a 4 day trip last week, and left Minnesota during a ❄ blizzard ❄. No snow by the time we reached Iowa. Our first stop: Iowa Quilt Museum, in Winterset. Who was behind the counter but Marianne Fons herself!

The view from the mezzanine floor:

A Scrapbaggers Christmas Quilt Swap🎄

My small quilt group, the Scrapbaggers, had our Christmas party recently at Laura's beautifully decorated home, featuring a sparkling 10-foot tall Christmas tree and many Christmas quilts, and a delicious potluck meal. My bad--the only photos I took, besides our quilt swap, were Patty's Christmas cookie tray--Patty and her cousins amazingly made 30 varieties of Christmas cookies over Thanksgiving weekend!

And this bundt cake, also made by Patty, which was as delicious as it was beautiful, with jelly filling inside.

The big event of the evening was our Christmas quilt exchange. At our October meeting we brought a charm square pack in a brown paper bag. We then drew a bag, not knowing who's charm pack we had, or who had our charm pack until the big reveal. The guidelines--make a small quilt or tablerunner for the original charm pack owner using at least 75% of the charm pack. Here are the results:

On Ringo Lake: Clue 1㊌

This is my second year to sew along with Bonnie Hunter and her 
(free!) Black-Friday-to-New-Years mystery quilt. You can see my finished En Provence from last year's mystery here at the very end.

I'm using the colors she suggested, because I've never made a quilt out of this color combo before. I'm covering all the stash--old, new and Japanese.
