Red and White

I've quilted my queen size red and white quilt. These fabrics were from the 5" red and white swap from a while ago.  I love this quilt, it's got such a variety of reds. I put wool batting inside, can't wait to try it out.
My cousin had a baby girl a couple weeks ago. I've made a couple little blankets to use in the stroller or car seat, they are about 20" x 30" with cotton and soft minky fabric. These don't have batting, a nice and light cover. The little purse to for her big sister. What girl wouldn't love purple horses.

Happy Quilting!

Retreat Progress

The retreat was a blast! We had fun with the games and a few people went home with some awesome prizes  such as the Kim Diehl blocks, two jelly roll race quilts and someone donated the cutest little quilt. Maybe next year I'd be so lucky. We all had fun regardless of what we came home with.

I made a little progress on my scrappy sewalong blocks. I'm so slow making these but will keep at it until I'm done.
I put together these blocks that will become a tabletopper for the spring and summer.
Sashing has been added to my HST's blocks from Pam Buda's sewalong. Mine will be larger as the blocks are 8" finished. I think the final size will be 48" square. I'm waiting for a border fabric to arrive. I ordered 2 different fabrics in hopes that one will be right.

We had a fun night of curling and pizza with friends last night. Our first time, might give it a go again sometime.

Happy Quilting!

Sew Along

I had some HST's from a swap a while ago. I came across Pam Buda's sewing along recently and had enough HST's for all the blocks. Mine are 8" finished and Pam's blocks are 6" finished, my quilt will be bigger. Not sure what size yet but I think a nice table topper. I'll be putting this together at my retreat which starts tomorrow. I've still got so much to do before I go.
The cats like to sleep on the bathroom floor because the tiles are heated. It's nice and warm for them. I better get ready. I'll have more to show when I get back.

Happy Quilting!
