Bowl of Strawberries
Life is like a bowl of strawberries. You never know who might come in to your life. Or was that cherries... Anyway, I've met so many wonderful friends since I started blogging. I just wanted to say you are all fantastic and I thoroughly enjoy your friendship and sharing.
My 4 patch quilt has been sitting for a month waiting for me to add the border. I did it! This quilt came out bigger than planned, it will fit nicely on my queen size bed. This method of 4 patches was from the first Nickel Quilt book, two 4 patch blocks are done at the same time. I couldn't stop making them and it got bigger and bigger...
Today I'm getting ready for my retreat this weekend. I will bring my double wedding ring blocks since I've neglected it for about a year. I'll head over to pick up my DF Arleen tomorrow afternoon. We'll make 2 important stops on the way. One to pick up my basket quilt which is at the machine quilters. And the second stop to pick up any last minute fabric at Quiltopia. The retreat is a Loon Lake, University of British Columbia Research and Education Centre. It has recently been built and looks like a nice place. Can't wait I'm sooooo excited.
