When is it time .....

If you have ever been to a Quilt Retreat or a Quilt Camp, you all know that sleep is not a priority.  You just want to keep working on your projects and talking to your neighbors and the day and night just go by so quickly.  But every once in a while, you do something that makes you say "Ok it is time to stop and go to bed!"  Well that happened to one of our quilters Saturday night.  She was busy working dilligently on her quilt and just had to put the borders on it to complete the top.  So she put the border on the top of the quilt and then ------ you guessed it she put another border on the top of the quilt - the one that was supposed to be the bottom border.

So the quilter gave in and went to bed.  The next morning, the "reverse sewing fairies" took off the errant border and when the quilter came back to the sewing room after a "long" night's sleep she sewed the border on to the bottom of the quilt.  But that's not the end of the story..... this quilter then put the border on the side of the quilt - but as fate would have it, she put a double border on one side of the should we have sent her back to bed for more sleep?   Don't know if that is what we should have done but we all - including the quilter - had a really good laugh!

Here are some more pictures of the weekend - hope you enjoy them even half as much as we enjoyed the weekend!

This is Amy with some beautiful blocks she and Nancy worked on over the weekend.

Marge finished handquilting a quilt that she started several years ago - doesn't it make you thing of spring and Easter?  Gloria is modeling one of her great reversible aprons.  Pretty aren't they?

More pictures to come.  Happy Quilting!
