A couple of weeks ago, I went to a retreat that was put on by one of the local quilt shops. We take our own projects and work until we want to sleep, and if we don't want to sleep, well, keep working! Here are a few projects that I finished. One was even done start to finish.
|This is a two fabric quilt, purchased the fabs and pattern at least 5 years ago, made it this year|
|Closer view, sorry about the threads|
|Note the centers of all these, one fabric, sewn together just in a little different spot each block.|
|Part of the fun going to these retreats are the shopping we do along the way there, and at the host store!! I purchased several pieces of KS Troubles Fabrics, my faves, and stripped them into 2 1/2" strips, they will be joined like this:|
|Cut apart and pieced randomly into a checkerboard, alternating with a strip set, for demo purposes I only had two different sets, but will look like this when finished:|
|I am an Amy Butler purse and bag fan, and I purchased this pattern and these fabrics to make me a new tote, my husband is always telling me that we are running low, but I think he's kidding, oh well!|
|And lastly, just a few of the little clutch, coin, glass case, whatever bags that I've finished, hopefully to load onto my Etsy shop soon, I have the shop set up, but nothing is there right now, so I need to get on the ball!!|
