Yesterday was the Make and Mingle Sew Along with Jennifer Paganelli held in Fairfield, CT. Close enough to go, I am so glad I did! What a perfect getaway on a gray, gloomy Sunday. Like falling down a rabbit hole and landing in a colorful wonderland where there were old and new friends, piles of quilting fabrics, the cutest shop ever and a collaborative cause, Tammy Gilley's Quilt Haiti Project

With some starter tips from Nancy (sewing on the right),

we all chose fabrics from Jennifer's generous stash.

Natalie (on the right) and her sister, Karen made sure everyone had whatever they needed to make a 12" square for the quilt.

Even the stenciled floor is darling at Make and Mingle.

My favorite kind of fun.

And the fabulous Queen herself.

Thanks, Jennifer, Natalie and Karen, Nancy and Tammy! In more ways than one, you definitely made a difference!
