I'm so lucky to have such amazing friends who all love to quilt. Yes, I do need to fly 2,000 miles to be with them. But it's worth it!! I always get so much done and have such a great time. I feel blessed!! ❤️❤️
We started our retreat time with a visit to JJ Stitches in Sun Prairie, the cutest little town near Madison. I started in the sale rack, looking for backing!
Look at this fabric I spotted: made to look like selvages;
My first project was the Circa 2016. Needed to put my blocks together. Don't want to fall behind!!
I also made the newest little block!
One 3" block per week is right about my speed!!!
Then I assembled a little baby quilt using cheater cloth and a kit I bought at Expo last fall. Adorable!!
My next project was a donation quilt for an auction. I love how it turned out, even though I wasn't able to line up the "postcards" perfectly!! I'm just not that precise of a sewer!!!
I just love the fabrics! Look at this backing I found:
Now for the x-rated part!! I found this adorable fabric of Santa on the beach last time I was in Hawaii. I thought it was adorable. I started this quilt last month when I was here in Wisconsin but hadn't looked very closely at this particular fabric.
You've got to look at this Santa very closely. OMG!! My friends all saw the problem way before I did!!
I took it out, by the way. Vbg
That's your laugh for the day, girls!!!
