l am sure you have all seen the above advertisement for the Red and White Quilt Exhibit that will be on in New York in March. l first saw the flyer at the airport last October when l was waiting to catch a flight to L.A then on to DFW. As soon as l saw it, l knew l had to find a way to see this exhibit. Our excitement became contagious, and there are now 5 of my Sorrento Sewing Girls making the trip. So 3 weeks from today, l will fly out to New York with my daughter. l will meet a Quilty Girlfriend at JFK who is flying in from Norway to join us and we will head off on a 2 week long quilting adventure.Our first week will be spent traipsing around Pennsylvania, then we will head into NYC for our last week.
And so with our red and white adventures ahead of us, my stashbuster group ( 3 of us are going to the exhibit) have decided to make this the year of the red and white quilt, hence my current sewing fascination. These blocks above have been turned into the quilt below.
l dropped it off to my machine quilter yesterday,
and she (is one of my Sorrento Sewing girls)
will bring it down to Sorrento next weekend when we have our next retreat.
Then of course you have seen these blocks,
which we will do a swap of over the next few months.
And yesterday l played with this block below. Its next on the list of quilts our
stashbuster group will make.Of course, all this sewing in red and white
has made me realise that my red stash is NOT what it should be,
so guess what my shopping focus will be while in PA ?
Well, RED and WHITES, of course. l love having a color focus when shopping for fabrics.
If you are going to be in NYC for the exhibit, l would love to hear from you. l know there are a few of you in blogland going, how great to be able to meet and share our adventures. l will be there from Friday the 25th march till we fly home on Friday the 1st April.
Thanks for visiting.
