Catching Up

It has been awhile since I have written anything here so I thought I should get with it.

This week I attended a retreat/workshop with Jo Morton at Our House in Milford, Texas.  This was not a project oriented retreat, but rather a study of Half Square Triangles.  Jo showed pictures of antique quilts for inspiration along with some of  her very cute small quilts, and we created our own projects.  It was very interesting to see what each lady came up with.  The projects were all very pretty.  I will show a few of the works in progress.  I did not get to take pictures of all of them and my pictures are not very good.  But I did get permission from the owners of these projects to show them.

To start this is my project.  It measures about 19 x 26 inches and I will add  a top and bottom border, when my fabric order arrives.  This quilt was inspired by the book “Piecing the Past” by Lynne Hagmeier.

The retreat was very relaxing and a lot of  fun.  The people at Our House really go the extra mile to make you feel at home. 

In 10 days I will attend another retreat and will work on my Philadelphia Pavement quilt.  Life is good.

Until next time.
