The CELEBRATION began with the arrival of this quilting magazine in mailboxes and newsstands.

Our quilting teacher/mentor/friend Pat Wys of Silver Thimble Quilt Company designed the project Gathering Baskets in the Sept./Oct. 2010 issue of McCall's Quilting.
Yahoo!!!!  At one of our "Musketeer Sewing Sessions", Pat worked on this project to submit to McCall's Magazine. We'll been waiting for monthS to actually see the quilt "in PRINT." On Saturday, August 7th, Mita owner of Patchwork Cottage Quilt Shop hosted a party to help in the celebration of this event.

And gather and celebrate, we did.

That is so great, and what a wonderful celebration you had for her too. I really like the quilt and will keep a look-out for that issue... australia is about three months behind in how soon we get the magazines, so there's quite a wait!
