I taught a class at a retrat this weekend so I have a lot to report. First, I made this colorwash quilt/table topper. I was a secret quilter to our guild's president who likes botanical fabrics. I named the quilt "I Like Botanicals" just like she wrote on her hint sheet we completed prior to drawing names.
Friday night we made tote bags. A long arm quilter in our group prequilted the guild's logo onto Kona muslin for every participant. She quilted front, back, and handles. This was in commeration of our guild celebrating 25 years.
Then Friday night I finished piecing rail fence blocks I worked on last week. Cut the quilt in two places and now it's on point. I forgot to take the border fabric so this is as far as I got.
Saturday I began teaching the weekend project. I posted my finished quilt of Trip Around the Scrap Basket in a previous post. Here is just one setting we discussed this weekend in this photo. If you'd like to see all the quilt tops/settings used, let me know and I'll make a separate post. There were some beautiful quilts made over the weekend.
I worked on this little star quilt. It's part of a pattern I teach and am expanding the pattern. I still need to add borders. Most of the retreat participants thought I'd lost my mind.
I pieced some more Double Hour Glass blocks at the retreat as well. I still need 12 or 14 more blocks.
And as I was working, I made one Mountain Top block. I'm using left over binding triangles sewed to muslin. The HSTs are squared to 1" finished size. With this reveal the group decided that I'm definitely crazy.
I had a very productive week even though I had to prep and teach at the retreat. After I get more sleep today, I'll be back to see what the rest of you did. To see more design walls, go here.
