This weekend was an outdoor DC Modern Quilt Guild meeting. We met at the beautiful Botanical Gardens. It was a hot day but luckily there is a nice shady spot with benches. Everyone brought some hand stitch projects to work on while we all were so inspired by the show and tell... Here are a few pics I was able to snap :)
It was wonderful hanging out with such a creative and talented bunch. And I loved that it forced me to walk a bit of our beautiful nations capital...
PI was lucky enough to attend one of the three days of the first DCMQG retreat!!! Funny enough it was held on University of Maryland's campus at a fraternity house no less :). Amazingly it was a great space! And clean, haha. A huge thank you to Anna who did an excellent job planning and hosting!
I was able to chat with friends and get some much needed quilting done.
I loved every minute :)
And look at my quilting...
I finished all those straight lines! It is so tedious but wasn't so bad with all the people to distract me just enough to not quit.
I am so happy that this one now just needs a good binding instead of being an eternal UFO :)
