I have been so busy stitching while I wasn't responding to comments. I've made 10 more name badges for retreat friends to put on their machines. This has become a never-ending project. Every time I say it's the last batch, someone else asks, or we get a new person at retreat.
A couple of years ago, I made these 16-patches as part of a larger project. Which never happened. I can't just discard all this hard work of course, so I made a doll quilt. This will go to A Doll Like Me, and they have a need for quilts for boys as well as girls.
Naturally, the remaining patches became part of a place mat for Meals on Wheels. More place mats were made with the trimmings from the backing of a quilt. Said quilt will be making an appearance here soon, as it is near the top of the to-be-quilted pile.
I have been quilting like crazy this past week, and here is another one of my finishes. This is the result of our block exchange at another retreat. This was the first time I participated in this exchange, and I love the result!! They always choose a scrappy Civil War style quilt.
Last and least, here is my Challenge Quilt for guild. We had to draw our inspiration from a magazine page. I had a lot of fun with it, but didn't win any prizes this year. Already looking forward to the next challenge!
I've also quilted 5 other small quilts, and will be binding like crazy in the days to come. but first, I have to go on a little weekend retreat. I've been cutting and prepping and packing, and hope to accomplish a lot while I'm away. I don't really know most of the people, so I plan to choose a nice quiet corner and just sew away like crazy.
Keep on stitching......Sunny
