3 tops done in one retreat!!

above is some of the projects I had brought with me
We stayed in that house seven of us with lots of room on Pigeon Lake, there is a snow angel there by the tree, I had to make one..
That pile of the first picture became this a UFO completed. This is a block swap I was in I think it was 2010 on Quilt with us these are the blocks I got back so then I had to think of what fabric to put with them and how to lay them out. so this is number one Tadaaaaa
Number 2 treat myself for finishing a UFO I brought a kit I had purchased from Fon`s and Porter. It was interesting when I first opened it cause the pinwheel fabric is printed…it is a panel. I had to fussy cut so I did and pieced and on the bewitching hour, I got the top done. I have not put the boarders on as yet I have enough extra fabric to add another row I would like it a little bigger. I am hoping to squeeze 2 rows out of the fabric. This is made all with Jo Morton fabrics.
Then I pieced together a quillow for a friend that had been promised 2 years ago…I forgot to take a picture of the quilt inside but did got the finished quillow pieced.
Then I came home and had brought this quilt with me to do but didn`t get it done. Sunday I got it all together made a major booo booo had to rip some rows and got it done yesterday…
The blocks I had bought at the guild boutique one of the quilt show for a dollar each I was thinking of a yellow quilt and this is what I came up with I only had the little blocks and added the HST around them. All the fabrics were just from my stash for all 3 quilts and quillow.
I am going to another retreat this weekend I hope I have the same progress.


  1. WOW! I never get anything accomplished at retreat! I love your projects - and I was so going to ask about the pattern for the pinwheel quilt. It's done with a pre-print? I think I need a closer look (hint, hint)...

    And what a brilliant use of your yellow blocks. :-D

    I have a Sunday UFO sew-in next week. Hopefully I'll be able to finish at least ONE thing!
