..... QUILTING FOREVER, HOUSEWORK WHENEVER .....

Sunday, October 2, 2011

On my retreat weekend...

 I put together Septembers BOM...
Paper- pieced... 
 The BOM group project is supposed to be "EASY", that every level of quilter in our group can accomplish... Not so with this block, and way to time consuming!!!

I put together a jelly roll. Quite a few quilters are doing it like this right now. I won the jelly roll at the Carberry Retreat in the Spring...
 I plan to put some applique on it. Some of the gals suggested a silhouette. We'll give it some thought, and do some creating on it later, after I get more of my PhDs done...

I also put together a table runner
out of a Charm Pack. 
 Did it in 4-Patches the Billy Lauder way...

We had a cute little visitor...
 ...that tended to "linger" after someone
gave it a bowl of milk... lol!

We had a wonderful weekend with lots of wonderful creations on the go, and good eats...

Time to plan the next retreat! 8-)

Mmmm....paper-pieced blocks look so wonderful, but oh, the work! Love the Jelly Roll 1600 - looking forward to seeing the end result! Great table runner, too!

Nice projects Myra. They all look great! Whats you thoughts on the jelly roll quilt(by the way I thought it was lovely)...was it fun. I've wanted to try one, but have been hesitating and a bit afraid.

I enjoy paper-piecing and know it well enough to say that I'd never say that block is easy for a beginner. I suspect some people might have become frustrated if they were beginners and doing that block! I'm glad you had such a productive retreat!!!

The block may not have been easy but it certainly is pretty. You got a lot accomplished!

The block is stunning! Applique will be perfect on your quilt. Can't wait to see what youcome up with. The runner is sweet.
