Yesterday I finished piecing my 3 1/2 inch drunkard's path blocks, and made a trial layout for a table runner.

Then off to my quilting group for 4 hours of instruction, chat, laughter, sewing etc.  One member was working on the layout of her sampler quilt (a project from 2 years ago - no deadlines!).  Two new members were having fun - one cutting out an autumn leaves table runner, and the other finding out how to reduce the bulk in the seam allowances.  Others were quilting, some un-sewing, but all were having a great time.
Then last night, a friend dropped over to whisk me away to her house.  Last year, she won a collection of autumn themed blocks from our guild, and had added sashing and cornerstones to the top and right side of each block.  She had tried several different layouts for the top, but wanted another opinion.  DH came along, and we spent an hour re-arranging blocks. Her husband took some pictures along the way, and we finally decided that we had a good one.  I showed her how to stack the blocks and pin and mark the rows, so she'll know where to start sewing....  She has some health issues, and can only sew in short spurts, but plans to finish the quilt to show at our guild meeting in the spring, when we both return north for the summer! 
Hope everyone has fun quilty days from time to time!
