What I Have Been Up To …..

It has been a long time since I have posted anything.  Since last time I attended a retreat with the 19th Century Patchwork Divas.  I count myself lucky to have been able to be with these women and their extraordinary quilts.  Sorry I can’t show pictures of their quilts and some of them will be in their book that will be coming out.  

I worked on several projects while attending the retreat.  This being one of them.  It is now ready to be sent off to the long arm quilter.   It is called Star Peony by Kathleen Tracy.

Star Peony Yesterday I picked this quilt up from the quilter and sewed the binding on last night.  It  is called Pieceful Nights by Lori Smith.  Sorry the picture is so dark.

Pieceful Nights 

Now I am working on this quilt.  It is from the book “When the Cold Winds Blow by Blackbird Designs, and is called Frost on the Ferns.

Frost on the Ferns I need to finish up the bottom border and dye some ric-rack that goes around the center. 

I am also getting ready to attend another retreat in a couple of weeks.  I am not sure what I will work on.  I have another quilt in progress and I am getting itchy to start a new project.

School started in August here Texas and my Granddaughter started Kindergarten and her big brother started third grade.  They are growing up so fast!

Your Star Peony is beautiful Pat, the colours work so well together. I am fast becoming a fan of Lori Smith, I have seen so many of her lovely patterns.
