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!

*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!  :)


  1. It looks like a fun time was had by all. What fabulous blocks that were being worked on. Thank you for hosting the link party. Happy quilting.
