It’s fun to be surrounded by talented, creative women who also are covered in thread and love fabric. None of these projects are mine. I loved all the inspiration. (Clockwise from top left: Sandy Klop star, Mischelle and her rainbow beauty, someone’s half-square-triangle star, Amber with her Single Wedding Ring quilt.
I brought along some of my own WIP’s to work on and got a lot done. (woo!) This circle of goodness is a conglomeration of my stash of Denyse Schmidt prints combined with Alison Glass Handcrafted (available here and here). First of all, I love how Denyse Schmidt’s fabrics over many collections play so well together. Second, I think DS and Alison Glass are a match made in heaven.
Here’s the end result of that pile o’ goodness. Turned out even better than I’d hoped. Yes. I’m in love. I made it using my Hopscotch pattern. Originally made from Kona Solids, I’ve wanted to do a print version for sometime. Now to get the borders on and get it quilted. ASAP. The neutral fabrics in this quilt at Robert Kaufman’s Quilter’s Linen in Beige and Riley Blakes La Creme with gray polkadots.
I also finally pieced my vintage sheet quilt. Yay! (but failed to get a decent picture of it. boo.) I think I cut out these squares about 4-5 years ago. I had some of the rows pieced, but I think the last time I worked on it was at this same retreat 2 years ago. Now to find the perfect back for this one. Another UFO/WIP almost off the list.
While there I also did a trunk show of some of my quilts from Fabulously Fast Quilts and elsewhere.
In addition I finished two over-due Bee-blocks and got started on this other pile of inspiration. This quilt is for a friend. She chose the palette and I’m totally digging it. It’s my first time making a “white” quilt and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
