Retreat Pics Quickie Post!






I'm running out the door...today is the day I tell the chiro that Nope....not going to take the job! (but I'll cover for him til he replaces me, or til feb runs out whichever comes first)

Here are some pics of what I worked on at retreat this past weekend.

I finished the borders on the quilt that Tonya and I worked on together. It reads:

"True Friends Are The Brightest Scraps In The Patchwork Of Life" and has my name and year on the bottom border.

I finished the sawtooth and inner border on the kaleidoscope, and the binding on the "crayon box" quilt. Look at the back...it's all big huge florals that I was never going to use....they are now OUT of the stash, and it made for a fun back!

Gotta run!

Brilliant quilts and the backing is full of laughs!

That border on the crumbs quilt is so fabulous - now mine is going to look so incredibly boring in comparison. Okay, you did show me!!!! Excellent work all the way around.

Good grief girl - you are a one woman quilting machine - love the writing round you 'Tonya Crumbs quilt' - good luck with telling the chiro, but you must do what's right for you

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Three more dazzlers! I hope your chiro didn't read your blog or he already knew you were leaving before you got there!

Dawn said...

You think of the best sayings for your quilts! I'm not that clever with words! And your letters are amazing! And look at all you got done! Wow - wonderful!

Inga Helene said...

Wow! Your quilts are just outstanding. I especially love how the "dutch quilt" as I prefer to call it. If I remember correctly, you started this one after visiting Lucy last spring?

A bit aside, but it's funny to think about: When I was a young girl, I thought the male opposite of a dutchess was a...

dutch :-)

(This was a really loooooooong time ago ;-))

WOW - You must be a sewing "machine" while at these retreats. I've never seen anyone get so much done, let alone finish anything. You are amazing.
