I started on this quilt top nearly two years ago. The arcs are cut free form.
I finished making all the blocks and put them together. (I liked it better in my mind but that's the way it goes!)
Several months ago I picked up a couple of charm packs of Grace by 3 Sisters for Moda. I also picked up some yardage. I did a simple stacked coins block and used bone Kona cotton as the background fabric.
|(Should have ironed it!)|
I also cut the fabric and made all the green blocks for a girl baby quilt.
I need to go shopping for 3 pink fabrics to make up the pink blocks. It's a very simple block but it looks cool put together so I am fairly excited about this quilt.
Last (but never least!) we had the opportunity to do a little fabric shopping. My intention was to take advantage of the sale price on some fabric at Log Cabin in Intercourse. I only shopped a little bit outside those perimeters.
The multi colored floral, pale green floral and the black/red fabric were all sale priced. I already started cutting up the black and red fabrics to make purses. The pale green will be a quilt back. See the purply brown fabric with the blue snowflakes? It's a piece of "Figgy Pudding". The colors are kind of unusual so I was happy to acquire this piece. It will go with a piece I have in my stash from several years ago. The two pieces that are peach colored are very, very old pieces of Moda. I have been looking for them for YEARS. Finally, success. I think the piece on the bottom will be a summer bag. I have to see what I have in stash to use with it.
The other women on retreat had some incredible projects. They are all very talented quilters and I am honored to be able to spend time with them. Hope your next retreat is as successful and as much fun!
