Ready for retreat!

Just a few days left before I leave for my yearly Lutherdale retreat and I totally cannot wait!  As usual, I have a long list of projects to work on.  A little too late to submit this list for the 2017 Finish Along that is being hosted on several websites-- maybe next quarter I can be organized for participating in that?  Here are my main goals:

Quilt #1
Legendary by Elizabeth Hartman
Wow-  this quilt looks like fun!  I found yardage in my stash for the trees and Sasquatch.  I bought a super cool textural fabric for the background and I can't wait make this!  It's one of my top priorities.  How far can I sew on this at retreat?

Quilt #2
Triangles in Mint-B/W-Grey
As this is the year of the baby quilt, I want to make some gifts that aren't overly complicated, but still stunning and not too simple looking.  Making an all triangle quilt is something I've wanted to try for a while and it let's me use the special ruler I bought a while ago.

Quilt #3
Pink Baby Quilt
See above about year of the baby!  This pattern is pretty simple and I think I can put together a top in short order.  I have a large supply of pinks and I would make it scrappy.  The sashing is TBD-- grey? Black?  Not sure and need to audition the fabrics.

In other sewing news, on Saturday I hoped to finish the scrappy, use it up, get it out back for my charity quilt.  It's not complete, but it is getting there!  I'm at the stage where I feel like I need a few different fabrics to freshen up what I've been sewing with...  It would be super nice to have this wrapped up prior to leaving for retreat!

  1. That is going to be a great gorgeous scrappy quilt!

  2. Is that a quilt back? It's gorgeous! It should be a front.

  3. Great colours! I always think happy thoughts when I see wonderful swaths of colour.
