Retreat Fun

The fun you can have is absolutely endless. Retreats are my favorite. Sewing, visiting and meals are shared with good friends and so much is accomplished.

Lighting  June 2013

I learned how to make bias binding and bound my Lighting quilt. It is 48" across to give you an idea of how big it is. I did this a few years back from a Cheryl Phillips pattern using her ruler. 


June Retreat up North - 2013

 This was only the beginning!


Tiny Boxy Zipper Bags - 2013
Getting some zipper bags ready for my Etsy store. These are the tiny lipstick size.

Hexagon Quilt June 2013

Here is my hexagon quilt that I had to learn to do Y seams for. I only have three more rows to add and it will be ready for quilting. I look at all my sewing and wonder if I will ever tone it down and do something mellow or sweet.
 

Lilah June 2013

This is not the best picture of my new friend but the others where you can see her eyes were zombie like. Her eyes were bright lime green! I need to learn to 'touch up' pictures along with dozens of other things on my list.


Dishcloths June 2013

And when I get tired of sewing or just need a break I knit dishcloths! Fun, colorful, easy, relaxing and useful.

Until next time, quilt happy

Hahaha! I don't think you need to wonder about ever changing your love of bright fabrics and wild designs! It just wouldn't be you!

Making little lipstick cases isn't even going to make a dent in that stash of yours!! Best get to making tote bags or something quite larger....LOL! Love the circle quilt...
