20150208 Official Quilts for Kids Sewing

I went to Chula Vista for the official Quilts for Kids sewing time.

There were two pairs of moms and daughters then the organizer and me.

Lots of room to sew and work.

I got the rest of the charm squares sewn into nine-patches then went thru her fabric to pick fabric to use for setting triangles as I think I will make at least one of the quilts so the blocks are on the diagonal.  I have enough nine-patches to make at least two quilts for quilts for kids.

Next time she will have batting I hope so I can start to actually quilt the projects together.

I hurt my back last Sunday after my friend left, helping my DH move some furniture to and from his office - a few flights of stairs were involved.  Today is the first day I have really felt completely well again!  I spent a few days in bed, then got up to do more and more things.  On Thursday I walked to our nearby coffeeshop, but had to have DH pick me up as I was worn out.  Friday after the quilting class I went right to bed and slept for hours and hours, but today I didn't have to do that!  So again I have learned that I need to be careful with picking up things and helping out.

I put my sewing machine in a suitcase so it was easy to move it to and from the sewing places this week!  I couldn't have picked it up I think without wrecking my back again.
