Wow, I do not know where this month has gone and I haven't posted a thing! I was so busy going back to work on Sept. 2nd, the fair and getting ready for and going to a quilt retreat I didn't blog. I didn't have anything to show really. Now I do!
I was trying to come up with a retreat project and found a Judy Niemeyer pattern called The Crown of Thorns in my stash from 2004. I had almost all the fabrics, just bought two lights. I had it all cut and I spent the entire retreat sewing on this quilt top! I need to cut more strips for the border. It is very definitely my colors! It finishes at 70 X 70.
Quilt Taffy . It was a lot of fun and I especially enjoyed my friend Valerie flying in from Colorado. I took my featherweight for her to use, I honestly have never used it! I bought this grouping of fat 1/8's. I don't normally buy a grouping with the same prints just in different colors, but the modernness and graphics really grabbed me. On an outing to Huckleberry Patches quilt shop I found a pattern to use with them. That will be a surprise for later.
Lisa and Kevin's wedding. I finally finished it and they took it home a couple weeks ago. The background is dark brown and the outer rings are hand appliqued to the background. I was changing the pattern from curved edges to straight and this is all I could come up with to do.
