So while I was busy teaching during February, I also got to take a class and do a little "retreat sewing". I love getting away and just having big chunks of time to sit and sew with lots of laughs and fun along the way. So I shared back here, that I planned to take the Vintage Windmill class at the Quilty Friends Winter Quilt retreat and was using Ombre Fairy Dust . Well, I am super excited to say that I managed to get a lot of the quilt done in class, and then managed to finish putting the quilt top together while I was at the retreat, ya know during some of that late night sewing :) And I am just head over heels thrilled with the way it all came together!!! I just love it!!! I can't wait to get this one quilted up, it is just such a happy rainbow of piecing goodness!!!
This quilt is Sweet Blend by Laundry Basket Quilts and I just love it!! I used Amy Ellis's Wanderlust fabric for it and I just love how happy and bright it turned out. I need to get this one quilted asap, because it is for my daughter who just turned 13 and wants a Tween Bedspread now!! I think this will work just perfect :)
So ya, Lots of teaching, and lots of piecing in February :) And now I have 3 more quilt tops to add to the "to be quilted" pile. Now the only hard thing will be how to decide which to do first :)
Do you like to take old WIP with you to retreats or do you just work on class projects, or both??
