I had so much fun last night, meeting with the "Thimbles" sewing group. This was the first weekend the group met. I have been looking forward to the meeting since our cookie exchange in December. It was great to see everyone and spent some quality time sewing. Here I had been feeling so good that I had finished one project this week, until I started another one last night. The kit for this month was one of Pat, our formidable and hilarious leader's, designs: Pinwheels on Parade.
The kit was provided by Bad Melissa at Sweet Home. I fell in love with the fabrics that were used in the kit. The fabrics are very similar to the ones shown on the pattern. I love anything that has red in it, but this is my first red, blue and gold quilt. I got all of the pieces cut last night, and many of the strips sew together. Since I am out of school on Monday for MLK day I plan on working on it some more. I don't want this one to end up in my UFO stack.

Hope you had a great time at Thimbles. I sure did! I missed getting together with everyone and sewing and laughing so much. See you at Bad Melisa's Super Bowl Sunday sale if not before :)
