Prepping

In 3 and 1/2 weeks I am going to Litchfield, Ct with my fellow Cobbled Court Quilt Circle sisters for our annual retreat. We all met through the website of author, Marie Bostwick. We have become such a sisterhood during our past 3 years together!!! I really can't wait to see these ladies!!! So, I have been prepping for my retreat. I have made 2 pillowcases so far (we donate these to the Susan B Anthony home for abused women there)
When I went to purchase this fabric at Cafe Sewciety, Judy, the owner, generously donated enough fabric to make 2 of these when she heard what it was going for!! We also have a block raffle and I have made 2 so far, but they work up so fast, I think I am going to make more to increase my odds of winning these lovelies!!
Here is the link for those blocks: http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltblocklotto/ss/maple_leaf.htm Last but not least, I have been kitting up the fabric for my Rectangle Wrangle quilt.
This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern and is in her Scraps and Shirttails 2 book. I did make 11 blocks so far, but didn't take a pic yet. I will share those later. I've been good and doing some hand quilting every night..sometimes an hour, sometimes 15 minutes. I figure anything is good!!!

  1. Enjoy your selves. I just told my aunt we need a spring and fall retreat because I am not getting much sewing done on my stay-cation. Take lots of pictures to share!
