I haven’t shown you either of the quilts I pieced at the retreat last week.
I purchased a bundle of Lily & Will fabric….somewhere. This line is by Anne Sutton for Moda. It also comes in a pink colorway and a blue colorway. I think its so pretty!!! The pattern is Sweet Cheeks by Ms Camille of Thimble Blossoms. Its a bit different than the pattern because the yardage isn’t available yet and I wanted it finished. I just did a piano key border rather than waiting and ordering fabric.
The contrast pieces are just strips sewn right on the squares with their raw edges just hanging out for all to see. I’m going to put Minkee on the back of it and it will be a great snuggle quilt. It would be a great quilt to make for a gift when you’re short on time, but still want to make something special for someone.
There’s another finished quilt top floating around my sewing room somewhere. I also have a shawl blocking on my bedroom floor. You’re going to have to wait until next week to see them, because we’re going camping again.
The kids don’t have school the next two days, so we’re heading out to do some school shopping. (We haven’t done any of that yet this year!) We’re also heading to the Minnesota Wisconsin border to check out all the spectacular color. The forecast is great, and we’re going to go play! If we happen to have internet access anywhere, you may hear from me. Otherwise, I’ll see you next week!
