I decided to participate in Judy Laquidara's Quiltathon this weekend. I will be quilting anyway, so why not? I started last night with meeting a group of friends at the Quilted Angel, the local quilt shop. They have open sewing the last two Fridays of the month from 4:30 to 9:30. I took everything to work with me so I could go straight there. I worked on a pattern called Minnesota Windmill from Amazing Nickel Quilts. I finished the first step, 62 half-square triangles.

This morning I worked on the green quilt, walked the dogs and went to the Tri Guild Luncheon with Tamara, Francis and Chris. Moonlighters Quilt Guild hosted. The food was great and the speaker was so-so. We did have a good time. After a quick nap, I got back to the green quilt. The large stack in the front is what I got done today. The two stacks in back are the ones I finished earlier this week. The small stack on the left are the ones that are not finished. I ran out of the backround fabric. I'm doing the "draw a diagonal line and sew on both sides" method to make the half-square triangles. All the sewing is done, except for the ones with no backround. Now to cut them in half, press open and cut into quarters to make the blocks.
