Honey, I'm home!!

Sheesh..what is up with me and not keeping my blog updated???? Well, I am determined to rectify that, so be warned that there will be more posts in my future!! The first weekend of October I went on my yearly Cobbled Court Quilt Circle retreat in Connecticut. We had the best of times, as usual!!! Author Marie Bostwick is the best to hang out with for the weekend...not to mention all the other ladies!!! Here is our annual pic: I did get a lot of sewing done. I don't have a pic of the wallhanging I worked on. I got the background made and the applique ironed on. I have finished the top since I got home and will post a pic of that as soon as it's quilted. I did make another Bricks and Stepping Stones (by Bonnie Hunter) quilt: I was working on this in the wee hours and I cut the black and white 4 patches into rectangles and not squares. Sigh..that's ok....I still like it!!! I made it for a friend of mine at work, Jerri, and she LOVED it!! I had a lot of leftover rectangle black and white 4 patches, so when I got home I made this baby quilt for my soon to be great nephew, Beckett: This is a close up of the kid prints and the skull binding (skulls requested by the soon to be dad). Then, since I was on a roll, I made this Roman Stripes baby quilt from This one is going to my brand new great nephew, Lucas...formerly known as Nugget. I have some momentum going, so hope to have a lot more finishes..and beginnings...soon!!
