This is what I have been up to so far...
Across the Sea. I loved the pattern, a Greek Cross. It is simple, bold and it really is a great way to showcase some of my bright fabrics! I have completed 56 blocks, all sewn into rows already. And I would show you the completed quilt top but I ran out of my background fabric and await my additional fabric by mail! But I am liking this quilt (my imaginings of it!) and can't wait to get it finished. Will post pictures.
And remember that I mentioned that I belong to two (2!) quilt guilds - belonging to a quilt guild brings many benefits as well as responsibilities you know. Benefits are many.... regularly brainstorming and creating, all the inspiration from seeing others create firsthand. But to belong to the guild a member must strive to learn and improve his/her craft each year.
I attended a quilt retreat earlier this month - 3 days, 2 nights of lots of sewing and hanging out with other quilters. Very fun. And I learned a lot, especially learned that I love quilting retreats! I have signed up for another coming in January!!
Last, but not least.... I found some more Vintage Rock Maple heaven pieces....
|The dresser will be for my hub, as he really needs more space|
for all his tees, socks and running gear.
|And, look at these adorable nesting tables! beautiful set of 3.... actually I got all four pieces for an amazing price!|
Happy end of summer & new beginnings everyone!
