How Exciting Is This??

So I couldn't help but post about this because you all will understand, no one else does!! So I'm in Minneapolis for a couple of days for business and on one of the blogs I follow I saw a mentioning of the Minneapolis' MQG meeting being this week. I thought to myself that it was too good to be true, but low and behold... their meeting is tonight!! And I'm here tonight!! And I'm TOTALLY going, and I am SOOOO excited. I currently live in Dallas, TX and might be moving to Minneapolis so this is a great opportunity to meet some of my maybe new friends!! Yay!

I'm going to brave the foreign bus system, it's a pretty straight shot from my hotel it looks like, about a 30 minute ride, no transfers or anything. I'm excited. I will make sure to take pictures and post about the experience.

In other news, I have started working on my Sew Sew Modern mini quilt for my partner. She has been very quiet but I have actually had her as a partner in the past so I think I have a good feeling of what she likes. Here is the bundle I pulled for her:

I wanted to keep it simple, knowing her style but also wanted to try something I hadn't done before. I think this is a good compromise.

I plan on doing a couple of rows of 1in finished square borders. I'm debating on whether or not to add some hand stitching or just keep it simple and straight line quilt it. Maybe inspiration will hit me over the head with something in the next week. Until then, have a wonderful cold weekend!
