I was oh so sad to go home on Wednesday from the quilt retreat at Compass Centre. But reality and commitments on Thursday called. Wednesday night and all day Thursday I was kind of grumpy and tired – sort of like a kid who comes home from summer camp after staying up all night and playing hard all day for several days!
I am glad to say that my fantasy list of what I was going to get done (see Quilt Retreat Fantasy) was completed! OK, I’m lying! But I did almost get the top two projects done! Yay!!!
Here is my Log Cabin Trails all put together. There will be a border of a couple more rows of the darker log fabrics but that won’t take me long.
I also had a great time putting the baby quilt together. I love love love the cow fabric (which is an Alex Anderson fabric). I used an Attic Window block from 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts book (by Judy Hopkins & Nancy J. Martin).
Here is a close-up of the corner so you can get a better idea of the Attic Window block:
I plan to embroider a little pink daisy in each of the white squares before I quilt it. I’m just pleased as punch with the way it turned out.
All the ladies at the retreat created such amazing and beautiful works. My friend Barb blogged all about it at Just Sayin’ Sew. Be sure to check them out. Also check out those amazing crackers – that why I blew up like a balloon in 4 days! Back to the gym, Cookie!
