It has been awhile yet again. About a month ago I went to a quilting retreat. By planning ahead I was able to get three – yes three – tops put together.
I swapped 9 patches with friends for this one.
My long arm quilter sent me an email just before I left saying that I had a spot in her schedule coming soon. So I looked around and found this one. I had pieced it in 1997 it was a mystery quilt from Debbie McCaffrey. The fabric line was from the Groom’s Quilt in the Smithsonian Museum Collection. Andover had a new collection from the International Quilt Study Museum that went perfect with the top. So I made a strippy back and it is like having two quilts for one.
So while I was in this phase of getting some older projects done I finally hung some of my small quilts in my sewing room…
Next month I will be going on another retreat and hope to get another top completed.
On another note Mr. Quilts and I went on a short get away to Arkansas. The temps were cool and the nights were in the 30’s, but unfortunately we were about a week early for the fall color But it was nice to get away. We came home via Tulsa where I stopped at The Silver Needle. It is a wonderful needlework shop and I swear that I could have spent a week or more looking at all they had to offer. I attend a needlework group at the local library twice a month and I wanted a portable magnifier light. While at the shop I found this Dorset model and I love it.
I guess that is about all that is new with me….
Until next time
