Quilting, creating, travel and fun with friends! A two night sew-in with friends in March, three retreats in April and one in November. No firm travel plans yet, but I’m working on it!
First up is prepping to make a quilt for a baby girl due this spring. The requested colors are red, gray and black. Here are the reds I’ve chosen:
And here are the grays and blacks:
My plan is to make a scrappy sawtooth star, with four patches between each star block. The fabrics are all prewashed and pressed. I’d like to get them cut this week, put in a project box with my notes and drawings, and bring to the March sew-in.
Next I need to make a plan for my flimsies (unquilted tops). Realistically, I will not quilt them all myself, so I need to decide which will go to the long arm professional. I’ll also need to choose and prep backings.
Then comes the charity quilts. The donations received need to be sorted through and a plan formed. The blocks made at the November retreat will be pieced. New blocks will be cut for the April Quilt & Sew-in. A new cause has been chosen for this retreat – more about that at a later time.
And then there is this basket FULL to be sorted, cut and put away.
