I’m so excited for Bloggers’ Quilt Festival to start this Friday! All the details are coming together, and I just need to write the post! In light of all those details, and the busy birthday/mother’s day weekend, I have a few moments to share in pictures.

Our birthday girl, had a fabulous weekend, complete with an Avenger’s date with daddy, pizza and movie night with friends,  and a Kindle from the grandparents! Her cake really was the icing on top!

We attempted to make a kindle cover, but I failed to enough to add enough seam allowance.

Yesterday I managed to match up the last couple of pieces to my blocks, now I just need an hour or so to sit and sew. Maybe today?

I’ll let you know…happy quilting!

    Don’t ya just hate it when seam allowances get left by the wayside… Ranks right up there with my personal favorite… sewing without bobbin thread… grrrrr :o)
    So looking forward to Friday!!
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    Sounds like a great weekend! Hope you got that hour to sew those cute blocks up. I am working on the binding for my BQF quilt every spare minute I have so it will be ready for Friday (well, except for the few minutes it took me to visit here!). Smiles~Beth

    Your girlie is getting so grown up. Sounds like she had a wonderful birthday.

    I did the same seam allowance thing on an underskirt for a bridesmaids dress for my daughter…luckily I could undo the french seams and give her a little more wiggle room :)
