Productive Weekend


It's that time of year again when I put off start making the deer quilt for the Hunting Club. For this year, I found an elk panel, an elk print and this fabulous tree print. After many sketches, I decided something simple. I wish now I had framed the pieced border with brown but I didn't have enough so it is what it is. Ernie likes it so than means all the other guys will too.

I spent yesterday cutting fabric and making up my own kits for two Bonnie Hunter classes-I'm only in one class and on the waiting list for the second so I got ready for that one too. Even if I don't get in, I'll work on the quilt that day as I pout at home.

I'm going to a retreat this month and we always do a strip swap so I got those cut up too. I figured I cut close to 20 yards of fabric yesterday and paid for it all night long. My shoulder is telling my how crazy that was. But when I'm in the mood......

Now I have to go in and finish the quilt on the frame and get on to the next one. Or I could fix dinner.

Hmmm, quilt more or make dinner.... doesn't sound like much of a contest. Glad you are on a roll. Enjoy it!

I tell ya, that's one lucky bunch of guys to have you in the midst. I hope they know that. The quilt is great. I can't believe it's that time again already! Time flies faster and faster. You're probably gonna need that dinner to keep up your quilting strength. So if you can get someone else to fix it for you .................

Another fabulous quilt for the Hunting Club. I love the thin black borders around the center panel.

Elk are such majestic animals. Love it.

You're going to LOVE your class with Bonnie! I'm curious too of which classes she is doing on this trip to Portland??? I've thought about crashing the Trunk show. You are so smart getting the Hunters quilt done quick- it's best to get it done before the deadline, right?
