Sampler Quilt and Red Hat Breakfast

I love sampler quilts.  What a great setting with the background stars.

This was quilted with s.i.d. around all the blocks, but not inside the blocks.

Inside the blocks I dropped a motif.  These small blocks were done with a simple motif.

The large blocks got a more complicated design that filled the available space.

Oooh... pretty!!!

Red Hat Pajama Breakfast has been happening yearly, I think we're at year four now.  It's always early December.  An excuse to drink Baileys with our coffee.  :-)  It's a goofy event but one we all look forward to.

We look so darned cute, don't we?  In the pics below I managed to block out the large purple stain on the tablecloth from the spilled fruit smoothie.  That was the only accident.  And thank you OxyClean - all evidence is  now gone.
This was pot luck, although all Sadie (the dog) brought was entertainment & slurpy kisses.
The menu:  Fruit smoothies, potato casserole, quiche, sausages, oatmeal, waffles with whipped cream & fruit compote, assorted tarts (raisin, pecan, cranberry), coffee/tea/Baileys.  The little elves even washed up all the dishes.
