National Quilting Day Was Great!

Yesterday was National Quilting Day, and I spent it doing all kinds of quilty things. First, I worked on the machine quilting for my little London Roads quilt:

Free-motion swirls fill the setting triangles and border
Then I did the binding. I tried a tip from a McCall's Quilting reader and wrapped the binding on a section of paper towel tube, then put it on the vertical thread spindle on my machine as I worked. No tangles, and no trouble!

Next I did some sample-making for our next video Quilt Along series, this one featuring my Studio Sampler quilt design. Here are all the patches laid out for a 12" Card Trick Block:

See the "cards"?
Then I sewed the units. Sorry no photo of a completed block...that will happen in the video studio tomorrow.

Ready for its closeup!
I hope National Quilting Day was as much fun for you as it was for me. Better yet, I hope every day is a fun quilting day, for all of us!
