I put the first border on an older mystery by Bonnie Hunter called orange crush. I should say I put the border on again. I must not have measured correctly the first time and the border looked wavy. I measured very carefully this time and I am satisfied with how it looks. I hope to put the pieced border on in the near future. All the units are made so I will use it as a leader/ender project soon.
The last project I worked on at the retreat was with the Hex n' More ruler. I had a lot of fun coming up with a design. I used part of a scrap bag from Moda. It looks like a line from 3 sisters, but I really am not sure. It is not my normal palette and I enjoyed working out of my comfort zone. I will either make this into a pillow or a small wallhanging. I can see myself making a few more things with the ruler. It was fun to use and the pieces lined up really well.
It was a great weekend retreating with friends. I can't wait until next month to do it again! I really enjoyed working on something new. I finally have my plus quilt in columns, so I hope to put that together this week.
I am linking up with Judy for some weekly inspiration. Stop on over and check out what others are working on this week.
