I just got back from a wonderful Quilt Retreat. It's so nice to have a few uninterrupted days of sewing with friends. The time flies by and we get so much accomplished, in between our laughter and conversation, of course...
I made two quilt tops while I was there. First is an improvisational tree quilt (Christmas Quilt #3), using this tutorial I found from the Diary of a Quilter blog. (colors look better in person - aqua, red, gray and white)
Second is a Batik Square-in-a-Square quilt that I threw in as a last minute project. I've been in the mood to do a simple quilt with batiks for a few weeks now, and this seemed perfect. And it uses every bit of a 40 strip jelly roll. No waste! Not sure if I will add a border... Should I?
Once those were finished, I started sewing my half-hexagons together into strips for my One Block Wonder quilt and got 12 out of 20 made. I'm really liking how this is going and can't wait to see it finished!
The weather was gorgeous while we were there and I enjoyed going out for walks every day. I was so excited to stumble across this perfect bobcat print!!! That's a first for me!
This week I plan to finish the binding on Christmas Quilt #2 that I finished quilting before retreat. Hope to post pictures next week if I get it done, so stay tuned!
