Scrapalicious !


Faithful Circle held its annual guild retreat last weekend. LOTS of sewing… and chatting got done. It was tons of fun and close to home so i got to go to a baby shower for my niece in the middle of the weekend. I delivered the baby quilt I showed in my previous post  to the new mom and she was delighted! Yea!

While I was at the retreat I pretty nearly finished my flashy bright X’S and cross block quilt. I had a few more sashing strip to add when I got home but that was soon finished. I told my youngest daughter that she could have this quilt for her 15th birthday – which was the last day of the retreat – so now the pressure is on to get a backing ready and quilt it up. (Sorry about the bad picture.  It is too big to hang up and I have no volunteers to hold it!)

This week I am trying to complete a top I made using 2 1/2 inch squares I cut up from my scrap bin before the retreat I went on in November. It is coming along. I am working on the Prairie pint border and can’t decided if I want it to face in or out. Ummmmm….

Decisions decisions....

Decisions decisions….

oh, and I signed up to go on a bus trip to the big quilt show in Paducah in April! Can’t wait!! I have never been before so it will be a great adventure!

  1. Those are both great quilts! I really love all the fun colours in both of them. Have fun getting the x and plus one quilted for your daughter. I’m sure she’s looking forward to having it. Thanks for linking to TGIFF!
