So, 23 members of the BAMQG showed up for our first sew day (10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.). We had plenty of room to sew on our projects, ironing stations, cutting areas and a large snack area! Members quilted, sewed, started new projects, worked on UFO's, made clothing, and shared stories, ideas, helpful hints and favorite books.

Deborah and I both participated in a flickr swap called Teal We Meet Again (teal, red and white plus sign blocks). We both needed to make more blocks, so we shared fabric and traded off blocks to get our projects finished.
I made a number of new blocks and realized that I would have to keep going. I went home and worked late into the night and then worked a few hours more on Sunday before the big game (49's and Giants in the playoffs). I finished during the first quarter, and here is what I came up with:
Yes, that's Boo the Labradoodle, hogging the camera lens. He was actually watching television, which is out of camera range and I couldn't get him to move away from the design wall as long as the television was on.
Later, I was able to get this photo:
I will show you the back of the quilt as soon as I get it finished. I'm thinking about the quilting. Right now, I'm thinking something very simple - perhaps a crosshatch? What do you think? Any great ideas?
That's it from the Robertson household.
