No Better Way to spend National Quilt Day!!!

   

     I spent National Quilt day at the Quilters of South Carolina Annual Spring Meeting.  This was my first ever true quilt Guild meeting!!! So I think it was the Perfect day!!  


     Kimberly Einmo was the speaker.  Her theme was different ways to use precuts!!  Honestly an inspiration!!!   I walked away with some new ideas!

     I also walked away with the new thought of fabric dyeing.  A gentlemen from Charleston County Parks gave us an education on how to use the Indigo plant to dye fabric.   The surprise to me was that indigo was once the main crop of the area I currently live.  And most likely the land I live on once I googled the plantation he spoke of.  Neat to learn little St. Stephen area history!!


     Of course I shopped a little at the retreat and bought my first ever Wool appliqué project!!  Excited to start, but first I have to finish my Stars!!

     Yes, I even found time while listening to speakers to sew up some EPP for my soon to be displayed new project!! 

     Then,  I came home and finished my Project Quilt Challenge!!  Oh and then the best part,  ironed and precut the stuff off my supply list for my Kimberly Einmo class in the morning!!!
