Weekend Update

 I think I'm a topper. I love piecing quilt tops.  It's the finishing that I have a hard time with!

The red & white top  that I started on Friday was completed on Sunday night. It will be added to my pile o' tops.

I am really happy with the pattern. I think it highlights the red charms quite nicely.  I used up almost every charm that I received in the swap. After the center was pieced, I decided the "star" points needed to continue into the border to complete the pattern.  I like the way it turned out, except it left me with a stray triangle!  I thought about removing it, but my new design consultant thinks it would leave too big of a white space.

I took a break from sewing to attend and volunteer at the South County Museum quilt show. The main exhibit hall is in this beautiful old building.

Our Girl Scout quilt was hanging proudly from the rafters.

This was my favorite view of the day: my friend Sid taking photos of the show on her new iPad!
All in all, a successful weekend!
