It's here again!

It's here again - my favorite night of the month - quilt guild meeting.
The Design Challenge starts this month and the theme this year is Baskets of Friendship. We are supposed to take a 9 inch basket block that we have made to guild meeting tonight along with 2 notions in a cute little basket to trade. We will come home with another basket block that someone else has made and directions of what to do next. How suspenseful it has been! Here is my basket block. Blue and brown, I must be thinking 'boy boy boy.'





I also finished my block of the month quilt top that we have been working on as an Enrichment activity the other night. I had a post earlier about what color of sashing fabric to purchase. I tried hard to find a green that worked for me, but it ended up dark brown. I do like how it turned out though. Thanks everyone for your helpful comments of what to buy.


Here it is on our bed. That is where it will eventually live. Matt likes it and is excited for me, but I haven't told him that it won't actually go on our bed until after the fair. Hopefully I can talk all the Enrichment ladies into putting theirs into the fair too and we will have a great show!



Well, off to figure out what to have ready for Matt and girls to eat tonight while I am far away in a beatiful place called quilting.

I love the basket! Brown and blue are two of my favorite color combos. Blue is my favorite color, so I'm a big fan of it!

So by the title I was sure the post was going to be about the snow.
I LOVE the dark brown. I think it was the perfect pick.

I love the quilt! I wish our enrichment groups could do something like that. We aren't allowed to do very many things like that. You'll have to tell me sometime how you work your enrichment groups and what activities you do.
