Block of the Month Updates

It's that time of the month to finish all my block of the months.  The first one I worked on this month was the Fat Quarter Shop Designer mystery.

 Then our guild has their monthly block of the month.  Since this was an easy block I thought I might as well.
Pat Sloan's 2015 Vacation Time Mystery.  
 Fat Quarter Shops Snapshot Block of the Month
 And Shabby Fabrics Pillow of the Month club pillow.

Quilting and piecing is such great therapy.  It makes me happy.

Thanks for looking.

Quilting Diva Retreat and a finish

The title is deceiving. I didn't finish anything at the retreat, but while talking to friends there, realized I never posted a picture of this quilt that I finished a few weeks ago.  I had originally machine quilting the binding down and it was horrible so I took that stitching out and hand stitched it down and then forgot to take a photo.

It's a Thimble Blossoms by Camille Roskelley pattern called Fireworks and a kit from the Fat Quarter Shop.  It is a fat quarter friends pattern.

The Quilting Diva's retreat was this weekend.  It's a bunch of gals who only meet once a year at Wonder Valley.  Such a great group of ladies.  All so kind and nice.  They all gave gifts throughout the weekend and I totally forgot to make anything.  Next year they expect big things from me.  :)

I didn't bring my sewing machine this weekend.  I focused on some hand applique projects.  I did get pieces that I cut at the Coxcomb class at Road all sewn down except for the big center red cir…

Forgot to Post this quilt

Finished it a couple weeks ago.  It was a kit from Nancy Rink Designs.  One of those quilts you keep looking at a show and know you just have to have it.

Calling it Brick House.  Because of the color and I'm so bad at naming quilts.  Now I just need to label it and put a sleeve on it because I'm entering it in Best of the Valley.  Sent all my entry forms today.  No turning back.

Thanks for looking.
