Shame on you non-believers who thought I had a too-ambitious list for a weekend of sewing on retreat...just so you know, I kicked some quilting ass!
Huge quilty bag- DONE! You could hide a body in this thing.
Seven (count 'em people, SEVEN) little house purses- DONE! Made a little village out of them, no two are the same :) In case you missed the original post on these, they are from this pattern. They knock me out with cuteness, they really do.
Three quilt tops. You got it!
First up was from a quilt kit I purchased from another favourite friend, Amy from Diary of a Quilter...um, two years ago? Time flies! Anyway, had started it last year, so finished the top on retreat.
Next up, my Linky Love quilt top, pattern by Traceyjay Quilts. This is a fabulous pattern, but a thinker! Had to work on this early in the day before I had had too much wine :) Turns out I left a few missing pieces at home, but I still declare this (mostly) finished!
Thirdly, I started on a quilt top for a Christmas present, using a jelly roll given to me by Alison some time ago. Not my normal style of fabric, but some nice warm colors well suited for the recipient, and I thought once it was sliced and diced I would like it better.
Nope, turns out ugly fabric is just ugly, any way you slice it! I loved the pattern and still plan to quilt it up, will see how the finished project feels.
So, all in all, a very productive weekend. Only 359 sleeps until next year!
