March 16th - National Quilting Day!

Friday Night Sew-In was a success! 
I got 4 more crumb blocks sewn in the colour of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
These blocks will join the baggie of blocks that I showed on my design wall in January - click here to see them.
And today is National Quilting DayHow wonderful that I get to spend it at a mystery quilting class! Such a sweet treat for me! My quilt guild is hosting a "past presidents mystery" event for the guild. I spent part of last evening cutting up the fabric for the mystery and picked these springy colours to work with. Happy Quilting!
