Well lots of sewing happened this weekend. It is amazing what you can get done with 3 full days of uninterupted sewiing! I just love going to retreats and taking some girl time. There is always plenty of food and plenty of laughter.
I think I am getting closer to some finishes for this year. I have been doing checkerboard blocks with 2" strips as a leader ender project. One strip of light and one strip of dark does each block. They really add up quickly. I love the look of the blocks together without sashing. This pattern is anything goes. One light and one dark were my only distinctions.
I worked on a fat quarter quilt with very well aged fabric with my good friend Tina also. The pattern is from the book Happy Hour. I have the top sewn together. I still need to decide if I want to put borders on it.
I also had time to work on some more FW blocks. I am enjoying this quilt so much. I have enough blocks done for one baby quilt, now I am working on the second one. My scrap bucket doesn't seem to be running out yet.
Check back with Judy at Patchwork Times to see what other are working on. Come back later this week for a look at more Farmer's Wife blocks.
