I got home from retreat today full of new ideas and energy. I can't wait to get to the sewing room this week. I had great plans to do so much but only finished 2 of my planned projects.
This is the quilt top that I sent home with my friend for American Hero Quilts. After some consulting with friends, I changed the borders using fabrics from 2 other quilters. There were several quilt tops completed and 1 gal brought a finished quilt to donate. Pretty cool!!!
And I love my Carpenter's Star top. It's hard to see in the photo but it has dark purple borders. Now it needs a good press and a backing made before the feather lessons start. I'm hoping to find my favorite flannel in pink for the back. I love a cuddly flannel back.
I didn't work on my Boxy Stars but a few blocks were made and donated. I'm hoping to have the top completed so I can deliver it on Wednesday.
My stomach hurts from laughing. I made some new friends, have a new favorite desert that I dare not have in this house and won some fabulous prizes. The strip swap was awesome. I have new strips to add to my collection and a new pattern to use them with. I had a really fun time and I'm already looking forward to the next one.
