Fun With the Minnesota Quilters! and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  As I previously mentioned, I spent several days with the Minnesota Quilters this week, presenting two trunk shows and two classes, and my first trip to Minnesota was really a fantastic time!  Check out a few photos from my trip (and btw, two weeks ago, I cut about ten inches off my hair, so I look a bit different from the photo on the right sidebar!) -







At my trunk show on Thursday night, I also got to meet Nancy from Grace and Peace Quilting.  Nancy and I have emailed back and forth through our blogs for years, and she even helped me with the release of Scrappy Improv Quilting by making a quilt for the blog tour.  It was wonderful to get to finally meet her in person!  I just love when that happens!


If your guild is looking for a fun program, I would LOVE to come visit you.  I only have a couple of openings left for 2023, but I am booking 2024 now.  Send me an email using the Email Me button on my right sidebar and we'll talk!

With everything going on, I didn't remember to post NTT until much later than usual last week so the party was a little small, but it still had some great projects linked up.  I love these scrappy blocks by Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting-


Sally at Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking shared this super fun hexie quilt-


And finally, this beauty is by Anne Marie at Stories From the Sewing Room-


Okay friends!  Now that I'm unpacked, this week I'll be over here plugging away on the backing for my Rainbow Galaxy quilt by dealing with the last of my scrap jars- the multi-colored jar.

Let's party!

5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)

The Payoff and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this finished quilt top with you today.  After all these weeks of scrappy improv sewing, it feels so good to finally see my vision turned into a reality.


Other than getting this quilt top finished, I've been prepping to teach the Minnesota Quilters (leaving bright and early tomorrow morning!).  I've never been to Minnesota, and I can't wait to visit!  

We've also been gearing up for my son's SENIOR year of high school!  I don't know how we got here so fast, but I'm going to treasure every single moment and all the "lasts." I know this year is going to fly by.

While I'm waiting in airports and hanging in my hotel over the next few days, you know I'm going to love seeing all of the pretty things linked up!  Before we party, check out some of my favorites from last week. Sew Preeti Quilts shared this gorgeous quilt-


This unique piece is by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color-


And this cute quilt is by Quilting Gail-


Okay friends!  I can't wait to see what you've been working on this week!  It's time to party!
