Sew in

I am a bit late talking about my fun at the last Saturday Sew In at Quilt Trends. I know it was posted to the CMQG site...but I thought I would give my twist on the day.
I was super psyched to go the Columbus since I rarely get the opportunity. I made sure I left early enough to stop at Trader Joes, Whole Foods AND Quilt Beginnings. It was a succesful trip. I didn't buy anything at Quilt Beginning though. I know they have beautiful fabric but I was looking for certain lines. Like Riley Blake's new Farm fabric and stuff.
Anyhow, there were 7 of us in the first group sewing.
Beth was working on some Valentine's for a swap.

I was stripping LOL with some Modern workshop for a yet to be determined project.
In fact, I haven't sewn anymore strips since that Saturday!
Amanda was working with Sugar Pop and I just love her lil Blythe doll. We have 4 of the Little Petshop babysitter sized Blythes. I SOOOO want a 'big' 12" doll. I am mean I have wanted one for atleast 3 or 4 years. Someday. I will get one, I will.
In addition to the sewing there was a WHOLE lot of  M & M eating.

It was a fantastic day and totally worth the 2 hours of driving. I can not possibly wait until we get together again.

P.S. The comments are now closed for the Moda Progressive Dinner Giveaway.
We are in the process of choosing a Grand Prize winner which will be announced in February.
I will pick MY blog's winner tomorrow the 28th.
Thanks for all the comments, I really DO like to know what pre-cuts you like because I am nosey like that and I have about 900 comments to read on my way to visit my mom and sisters this weekend!
Be back tomorrow ;)

I love the M&M's! You gotta have chocolate when you sew!

I'm bummed that I can't post a comment on the progressive dinner post tonite. I'm looking forward to the book.

Have a great weekend!
