After a wonderful weekend away at a quilting retreat, I have lots to show you!
Start & Finish: I made a little quilt to enter in the weekend quilt challenge. The theme this year was "Things we Bring to Quilt Camp." My first year at the retreat, I didn't bring enough thread. I won't make that mistake again!
I got to use some tiny scraps and my favorite Kate Spain print for the border. I used some silly fabric on the back. The triangles are pockets for a hanging rod.
Of course, it was pieced and quilted with Aurifil thread. I like the way the tiny quilting in the background and no quilting in the spools makes the spools pop. My little quilt is called "Going, Going, Gone."
New: The Saturday workshop started with a jelly roll race. Here are our yummy supplies.
I was so excited to sew on my Featherweight all weekend. She did great, with just a minor bobbin winding issue.
Here we are with our latest WIPs. The first time I attended this retreat, I was pregnant with Julia. Twenty years later, she was there with me again!
Someday, we will be inserting circles into these tops using the Piec-lique technique. Our fabric and design have been chosen, we just need to find some courage and time.
Ongoing: I finished 12 more blocks in the past week for my
This is what happens when you try to sew after midnight!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
