Yesterday ended my first attendance at the week long Stitch-In. Most of the women have been attending the Silver Thimble event for several years, but I was a virgin. I ran around doing errands in the mornings, so I didn't make it there most days until after noon, but since the sewing went on until 9:00 p.m., I got plenty of sewing time in.
Remember last fall when I made Pam Lintott's Hexagon Hip Hop quilt from Moda's Brannock & Patek Audra's Iris Garden?
At the Stitch-In I made it again only from a City Weekend layer cake I'd been saving. This will be a gift for someone who has become a very good friend during my husband's hospitalization and resulting death. (I want it to be a surprise.)
The quilt goes together easily, and I don't think you could go wrong no matter what layer cake you choose, or even if you cut your own 10" squares.
