Food Day

Well really it was Sew Day but seriously, Food Day would have been a better name for it. Deb, Debbie and Deanna and I had a great sewing day at Debbie's house again. The day began and ended with yummy sweet things. As you faithful readers know, my snacks all come with the 100 Calorie label so when unleashed among items like tiny bear claws... I'm out of control.
Debbie had a bit of a frustrating day, lots of machine issues, and you know how that can be. But she powered through it and will get it worked out. She got her pear towel done and it looked good.

Deanna spent the day cutting and prepping her blocks from The Quilt Show Block of the Month. She has hers all organized in a binder. I'd like to be like that. Organized.

Debbie getting ready to document her completed towel. She made the best taco salad I've eaten in ages as well, it was yummy.

My problem was lack of projects laying around to work on, so I used the cute nosegay block from Elizabeth's pattern and worked on my own towel. Now I just want to make a whole quilt with these darling blocks.

But I 'll finish up the towel first. I have the ruffle made so all I need to do is sew it all together. Photos later. Like later this week I hope.

In my last Fabritopia order Jona had included some of the Oh Cherry Oh panel so I decided to work on a couple of pot holders. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. Just need to add binding now.

Deanna was in charge of dessert. Holy. Cow. Recipe here, if you dare. I didn't have any first hand knowledge of the butter content till after eating... I'll be treadmilling extra time this week.

But it will be totally worth it. TOTALLY.

Ok, that was sew day in a nutshell. Hope you guys are having a good week. Thanks for all the Moda Bake Shop love! I appreciate your support!

Hmmmmm ... food, sewing ... food sewing? Which of these pictures is capturing my attention first?

I've gotta be honest and say that I was in awe of the darling bouquet blocks ... as I salivated onto my keyboard.

It looks like you had a great time with your gal pals!
I think the nosegay block is ADORABLE- I love the colors and fabrics that you used - you're right it would be so sweet if you made a quilt!!!
I'll be waiting to see it...

Yummy all of it including the sewing. Sometimes a project is so fun it is like eating dessert. I'm going to take the towels to our family reunion/vacation this year to work on. I think my sisters can handle appliqueing pears. Maybe! I hope.

OMG on all the butter! Wow. YOu know, most days I have a one point bag o popcorn just so I can pour two points worth of melted butter on it. :-)
Looks like a super terrific day. How cool that you get to look forward to doing that every month!

Okay, I've got a bunch of those little quilt panels sitting here and now I know I should have been marketing them as "pot holder kits"!! Duh! Brilliant!

Sounds and looks like it was a delicious day all around. I'm not even going there, as they say, to see the apple dumpling recipe, that is. La, la, la, I don't see those apple dumplings and that lump of creamy ice cream, not even lookin' at it...
