Wednesday is my quilting group day.  We meet each week from 11-3, and bring a small snack.  Everyone is working on their own choice of project right now, although I do offer patterns from time to time.  Today we'll be discussing our upcoming pillowcase sewing day for the charity, Cases for Smiles.    We are planning a date in late February, and have some details to work out with the area coordinator.
I have fun, visiting each person, answering questions, teaching new quilters, etc.  I come home energized each week.

My own project - the king size quilt is coming along.  I have all the rows sewn together in one direction, having to pin where all the points must match.  I spent most of the afternoon pressing all the seams open - not my usual style, but it will help with bulk where all the points come together.  The rows in the other direction have to be pinned everywhere, and I discovered that I have enough of my favourite pins to pin 3 rows at a time.  There are 18 long seams in each direction, so I'm finally seeing the "light at the end of the tunnel".

I'm off to pack my snack and load the car......
