Weekend Sewing in Manzanita

I love sewing with friends, especially out-of-town and for an entire weekend.  
The inspiration was flowing nonstop: holiday projects, a Tova blouse, a sample for a Craftsy class, some beautiful handwork, some breathtaking Feather Bed blocks (Anna Maria Horner pattern), two Sparkle Punch quilts, and a few quiltinis (a Happy Zombie term) -- to name a few.

I finished this Modern Crosses quilt top 
(another quilt from Elizabeth Hartman's Craftsy class: Inspired Modern Quilts).

Morning in Manzanita.

 It's amazing how good we are getting at moving furniture in various homes to make as much room as possible for as many sewists as possible.  In addition to the dining room, we had at least two sewing machines and a serger in the living room along with a large ironing table, a couple of cutting areas, and two "design walls".

I completed a Map of the States block for Heather for our Yamtastic Quilting Bee

 and this wonky log cabin quilt-as-you-go block for Monica.

This block is for my quilt in the Yamtastic Quilting Bee -- but that will be another post.
It's from the book, Quilting Modern, by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen.  I still need to trim it to size.

When's the next sewing weekend?  I'm ready to mark my calendar!
