In just about one month I will be retreating in Shipshewana.  It is crazy, but I like to do a lot of sewing leading up to a retreat.   I have been doing a lot of sorting and organizing in preparation also.  It is such a tough decision deciding what I want to take.  If I didn't have 50 or so projects already started, I could start something new and be guilt free.

Tina wants to sew a twister quilt at the retreat.  While cleaning, I found a pile of leftover 10 1/2" squares that I used for a backing.  This made me think that I should do a twister quilt also.  So, I trimmed up my leftovers to 10" and started adding more fabrics from the scrap pile.  I was very surprised how much fabric this took.

I am pleased with the color selections.  Some of these fabrics were gifted to me.  Do you see any fabrics you recognize?  The white with the red flowers that is on the bottom second from right was gifted to me many years ago from group member named Cookie.

This will be one of the "bonus" project I take.  I have several other set aside, but I haven't decided which ones yet.

Tomorrow I am off to Grand Rapids to take in Art Prize.  I am anxious to see the exhibits and especially Ellen's quilt.  Here is the link to Ellen's Quilt.  If you visit Grand Rapids, make sure you vote for her.

I hope to see the exhibits in Art Prize 2012 this week-end. I'll be looking for Eilen's quilt.
