It's time to work on Garden Party #2.
This is from our retreat in May with Bonnie Hunter.
I haven't opened the box since May 22.
After finishing Midnight Flight,
I decided this is my next get it done project.
I have all the flowers kitted up ready to sew.
I decided to do the 9 patch chain blocks first.
Since I'm changing from Bonnie's original setting,
I need more blocks.
No problem, these are so fun to make.
I have my bins of parts to pull from
and everything else is already cut and ready to sew.
I have a retreat coming up pretty soon.
When your granddaughter sends you a picture of a quilt from a store
and she loves the colors and wants one kind of like that for her 18th (gasp) birthday,
you get busy.
I'll be making Quiltville's Scrappy Trips.
Found in her free patterns section.
I have a big bin of black and white strips but no aqua.
I ordered a strip set from my friend Judy at SewFunQuilts on Etsy.
Miss 18 is going to love this.
Yesterday I sat down with my strips and made up block kits.
Each set is stacked in the order I want them sewn together.
Oh yes, I have a retreat plan.
Scrappy Trips first, then work on Garden Party flower blocks.
I think this will be enough to keep me busy for the whole retreat.
That's my plan today. 😉
