It is time for an update of sao quilty happenings….so here is what I have been working on.
I got a lot done on retreat – not as much as the QUEEN OF PROLIFIC QUILTING (Sandie) – but quite a lot.
I got my Thimbleberries “assignment” completed. I love these small flower blocks…and the OTHER assignment was to sew the larger flower blocks together…with a border. I really like making a quilt in small little parts. Then, at the end, you have a whole quilt and it seems EFFORTLESS! (sort of! lol )

QUILTERS CORNERS – Block of the Month – September
Quilter's Corners BOM - September
I really like these blocks – and the pattern is free at Quilter’s Corner in Midlothian.
I think this is a ginormous accomplishment. Making binding (and putting it on the quilt) are two tasks that are my LEAST favorite things to do…..so doing it on retreat with friends made it ever so wonderful!

MODA PIECE AND PLENTY Block of the Month Quilt
Piano Keys Border for MODA Piece N Plenty QuiltI got the piano keys border ready for the Moda Piece N Plenty Block of the Month Quilt...yeah....it is almost finished!
STAR STRUCK QUILT
Star Struck Quilt Blocks
I actually completed 36 Star Struck Blocks. I used Vintage Holiday fabric for Bonnie K. Hunter’s Star Struck Quilt (the free pattern is at www.quiltville.com
.) I am thinking about making tiny little border blocks with the cut off corners…….we will see how many tiny little pinwheels I can make and remain relatively sane.
AND MY LAST RETREAT PROJECT:
FRED’S BOXY STARS QUILT

Is there life after retreat? I have managed to make my two EGG MONEY BLOCKS! I must admit that I didn’t follow the directions for the Rocky Road to Kansas Block. What else is new! I paper pieced the entire thing.

I hope everyone stops by Quilter’s Corner
on their Tour De Quilt trek. Marla, Ginger, and I will be in the clubhouse with treats!
So, come say hi!
