Quilt in a Day
Finally I came across a pattern that would allow me to keep the integrity of the beautiful big poppies and enjoy the companion pieces as well.
If you click on the photo and enlarge it you will see the small dots on the background. Now this quilt will head off to Carol for the long arm quilting portion. I will share it once again, when it returns. I'm so happy something came of it!!
The squares around the edge are from a collection of holiday fabrics that I had also been carrying around with a pattern for a table runner. Turns out the pattern was a PITA. While looking at them at the retreat, and coming across the tucked away stitchery block, I thought - PUT them together!!! And so......I did!!
I have to start packing stuff up for the retreat this weekend. I'm going to really TRY to take precut, preplanned projects and not drag along all the boxes of fabric that seem to find a way into my truck when I'm heading out.
This is another new venue so it will be exciting to check it out. Also will get some sister time, and some time with Carter, Henry, Kyle and Genie. Back home for Halloween, and hopefully be helping Jeff and Krista get moved into their new home.
Goodness my split pea soup is smelling just luscious......
