On the weekend, I went to my guild quilting retreat something I’ve been unable to do for a few years around the time of my hip replacement and recover.
As always, it was like a beehive with lots of chatter, many laughs, many projects completed and too much food!
These are the blocks I’m making for my grand son’s I Spy Quilt.
I’m auditioning it also with a black sashing.
I’m leaning towards no sashing.
I also did a couple blocks from the gnome quilt pattern which won’t be for this Christmas but it’s fun to see how it will look.
I think the next two quilts made by the visiting daughter and a friend of a member were among my favourites.
The blocks for this woodland animal quilt were awesome! I think she said the owl had 56 pieces!
The trip around the world blocks Quilt is one of my favourites and I love the mix of soft low volume fabrics in this one made by Wendy Oeullette.
We each mad some of these bags from precut kits (thanks to a couple of members) and then filled them with toiletries for Passage House, a women’s shelter.
I had yesterday to finish unpacking, do wash, and go to the gym so today I was anxious to get some stitching time. I’m almost done, just a few details needed!
I will also quilt the border and add a binding.
