Quilty Week

Last week, I was busy with quilt things every day! Monday night was Quilters In Stitches. Anita Heady showed us how to use even the smallest piece of fabric in a quilt with her "Stretch the String" technique.

Tuesday was Gwinnett Quilt Guild. Karla Singer showed us her quilts where she used the Cotton Theory by Betty Cotton, where the quilts are quilted as you go. Wednesday, I took Karla's workshop, where we worked on making placemats. The placemats were double sided. I didn't quite get finished, but you can tell how mine looked from these photos.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were the days for the Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop. I visited all the shops but one. I didn't go to the one in Newnan, but my daughter stopped by there on her way home from Columbus Friday afternoon. She picked up their shop hop pattern, and she said something about getting me something for my birthday while she was there. I'll have to wait until May 3 to see what she got for me.

What a great week! The speakers sound great! Glad you were able to get to so many of the shops for Shop Hop. Which ones were your favorites?
