The quilt retreat continues at the Compass Centre in Mt Calm, Texas. We are sewing, listening to the cows moo and coyotes howl, eating some absolutely fabulous food, cheering on the Rangers and laughing a lot! So much fun!
This morning I worked on a Sonoma Swing Bag. The pattern is by Pink Sand Beach Designs. This cute bag has a long skinny strap, a zipper and pockets. The front pocket is the perfect size for an iPhone. I hope to make a few more for a craft fair at TCU next week.
The big project for the day was completion this Catty Wonk Dr. Seuss Quilt top:
I didn’t follow a pattern; just fussy cut characters, put wide borders around them and then tilted a 12.5″ square around to make the block “catty wonk”. Then the other gals at the retreat helped me rearrange them. It’s a fun, crazy, dizzy quilt that I think my sweet grandson will like for Christmas.
I especially like the elephant – Horton. Here in Mt Calm I think he can hear a “moo!” 🙂
