I went to quilt retreat a couple weeks ago and had a great time with 28 other women. We don't have cell service there so I left my phone off and didn't take another camera and didn't get to capture some of the gorgeous tops made. It is always very inspiring. This time I worked on a pattern called Snippets by Colorway. I had purchased the "Jingle" line of fabric in July and in September found a pattern that worked and added some odds and ends of other lines that coordinated. This is a new queen size quilt top for Christmas and although I got tired of making triangles I love it! It's so bright and fun with the aqua added to traditional colors. It really does lay flat, but I had it folded and didn't take time to press it.
I have been participating in a BOM from Turning Twenty called Seeing Stars for a few months. I am caught up on the blocks. Every other week you make one identical 12" and one 6" block. I had signed up for the free BOM and have managed to print off the patterns on time!
I was caught up on my 1930 Farmer's Wife quilt blocks until they announced two new ones today! I'm loving how bright and fun these six inch blocks are.

I bit the bullet, I wasn't going to... but Quiltville's new mystery colors are awesome! They are far from my normal, but I love them and decided to go for it. I need a bit more background, but I am loving the colors. I even got the color cards, just because I was actually in a Lowe's shortly after the colors were released. The closest Lowe's is 3 hours away and I forgot to put the cards in the pic.
I did some machine quilting I will show after the recipient receives it!
