Last week turned out to be one of those productive retreats. It seems I brought just the right mix of piecing projects. One small, one larger and one half-way done.
I had 16 of my 30 Flowering Snowball blocks completed and decided to tackle the remaining 14. Done and done! It was a breeze to set them together once I got home and I now have a top. More details to come on this one!
Our Modern Quilt Guild has a fund raising sale at the end of each year. Last year I won a jelly-roll of Kate Spain's Cuzco. It's so pretty! Since I had it all cut out before I left, I was able to piece the small Zipper quilt the first day. It's an older line, and I was wondering what I'd be able to find for a backing and binding. What do you know - the next day my friend, Gina noticed that Abby was destashing several yards on Instagram. Score! Meant to be :-)
And remember all those squares of Bonnie and Camille fabrics that I cut from scraps? Yup! Got most of those blocks done too! I finished the final few when I got home and quickly set them together. The pattern is Great Granny Squares by Lori Holt.
We had a fun little secret sister swap this time too. I asked for something for my sewing room and one of my best buddies, Rene, made this beautiful sewing machine cover. I love it and it was desperately needed!
It felt good to finish up a few quilt tops last week. I've got some new fabric calling my name...
The cycle never ends!
