The grandkids spent the night before so they were hanging around for quite a while. I love the way they help me with small projects around the house. Crosley (age 6) helped me change the sheets on my bed. The weather has really warmed up so I had to get the fleece sheets off. Monday I took the boys to the movies to see X Men. It was a real treat. That was the reason why they spent the night.
I have been working at getting my fabrics ready for Quilt Walk in June. Quilt Walk is a 4 day quilting retreat in Panguitch. I signed up for classes from Jenny Doan...Broken Dishes...and a free motion class and a class from Sariah Mortensen called Sparkling Cider. So I will come home with 2 quilt tops to finish and add to my stack. I have made project bags to carry my different project fabrics in. It is a pattern I bought at Quilt Guild meeting a few months ago. It is a pattern by Pie Plate Patterns. They only take 2 fat quarters, a zipper and a piece of vinyl.
I made this strawberry one first .
I also have been sewing a block for Quilt Walk. They have a block exchange and raffle quilt bundles off. The block is called "Shooting Star"
I also made a journal cover to take with me. It fits a composition book that can be purchased for a dollar.
Here is the front:

I hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day Weekend. Even though I worked Saturday and Monday, I still had a good weekend.
Signing off for now.
