Quilting Getaway Weekend

July 24, 2008 at 9:16 am 1 comment

It’s not until October but I’m so looking forward to it. The ladies in the quilting class are all going to my husband’s aunt’s cottage at Lake Winnepesaukee in New Hampshire for a weekend. We’ll sew, gab, eat and drink without husbands, kids and other distractions for 48 blissful hours. Also on the agenda is a trip to the Northern New England quilting mecca of Keepsake Quilting, only 25 minutes away.

My project will be a blooming nine-patch from the book Traditions with a Twist by Dalene Young Stone and Blanche Young. I haven’t picked a color scheme yet. I’ll have to go check out the stash for some inspiration.

These dog days of July are getting hot and tiresome but I’m happy to have something to look forward to. Is it October yet?
