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??
Love your Ombre quilts wow you get lots done good jobReplyDelete
You accomplished so much. I love the ombre stars. The warm and cool colors make for such a nice finish too.ReplyDelete
I love all of these tops. Excellent finishes Melissa.ReplyDelete
I just love your blog. I am sorry I do not comment enough.
I did make a lone star quilt top last summer. Seems ages ago, but it was a challenge for me. It turned out great, and it was a gift for my niece. I love her, but her parents are toxic, so it was a bitter sweet gift, and I do hope she knows I love her.
I want to make another one, but do not see it any time soon. I have so many quilts to finish for now.
Wow! That gives the Just Blooming Quilt an entirely new look! Love it! I've got several of the ombre quilts in mind - just a matter of getting to them!ReplyDelete
