A YoYo MaMa Birthday...

Last week on my birthday it happened to be our YoYo MaMa's club meeting too!
We are doing a block exchange this year and here are some of the blocks that were brought to show...











As you can see it was a sunny day! (along with a crazy wind)...We always meet at our favorite...Material Girls and the classroom has the most amazingly large windows which I love!...it's so great to have natural light when choosing fabric don't you think?
We also had some fabulous quilts brought for show and tell...






Whoops...this one of Betty's was so amazing I showed it twice!

The fun didn't end after the meeting was over.
After all, it was my birthday!
Sooo...my girlfriends took me to lunch and to do a little shopping.
This is Beth and Shanna smiling for the camera...
And here we have Debbie who is checking out the new issue of Quilts and More...

I caught Judy unaware as she was making her purchase....

Because we all ran out of fabric in our stash and had to replenish our supplies...LOL...as if!


After eating lunch at Gardner Village we ended up here at Pine Needles for more shopping...and more fabric:)

They always have such fabulous displays!....I'm tellin you girls...eye candy everywhere!


After we were windblown and shopped out...my friend Wendy who works at Pine Needles took our picture.
I don't think there could have been a better way to spend the afternoon of my birthday...with friends and fabric.
I couldn't ask for more!

How is your week going girls?...are you running out of fabric and need to go buy more?
I thought sew:)
Pin It!

If it is at all findable I would really really love the pattern for that Irish chain quilt pictured - right below the hearts? It's perfect for a scrap quilt I have been collecting shirts for! oh please if you know a source for the pattern will you share?
