One of our beautiful granddaughters is on her high school dance team and they performed extremely well at a competition yesterday. As a fundraiser there were many wonderful raffle baskets that one could win. I put in several tickets on a loaded Trader Joe's basket and lo and behold, I was the winner!! I am thrilled with my winnings!
After coming home from the dance competition, I finished hand sewing the black binding on this quilt that I have depicted before when it was in the WIP stage. I'm liking this one a lot!
I was reminded I hadn't blogged for a while, but to tell you the truth, sometimes I wonder whether to keep it up. We'll see.
This past weekend was the annual quilt retreat that I go to. What a great time I had with friends, and lots and lots of sewing accomplished. The following photo is the layout of a quilt one of my friends is making for her daughter. I think it is just spectacular. Gotta love that blue and pink!
I worked on a couple different projects, and got a lot of blocks completed, which I will plan to post about another time.
The following photo is a quilt I am nearly done quilting on. I think I have posted about this at least once before. At any rate, I was within six blocks of being done quilting the body of the quilt, and darn it all, anyway, if I didn't run out of thread. I did manage to find a pretty good match, so completed that and am half done quilting the border. I'll post again when it's bound and totally completed.
I signed up to take a Beginning Wool Applique class with a friend. That class was Monday, and truthfully, I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. It is a fun process. We all were to purchase a small kit and mine is a Buttermilk Basin kit.
I now have 56 of these blocks completed and am in the process of trimming them a bit and testing layouts. Laying them out is enough to make my head spin! I will eventually have something I am satisfied with. Sorry the quality of the photo is not so great.
