Ok, so I admit it. I'm a terrible blogger. Blogging and procrastination do not go well together. I will try to do better in the future.
Here are some photos of some of the projects The Quilty Chicks worked on this weekend at our quilt retreat. We all stayed pretty busy, with breaks for eating and sleeping, as well as some time Friday night in front of the tv watching Sex and The City.
First up is a baby quilt that Faye created. The batik colors really played off well against the black and white fabrics.
This next quilt is one Nancy has been working on. Her extensive stash is very evident in this quilt......these blocks are 6", and she is using a green sampler fabric for her setting triangles. This one is just gorgeous. She's at home, as I type, working on more blocks, I believe. Cant wait to see this one finished!
This is Nancy's Turning Twenty.....She prefers smaller blocks, so this quilt wasn't rocking her world.......so she gave up on getting it just right and sewed those blocks together and called it done. Way to set yourself free, Nancy! Now she can get it quilted and give it away!
I also was able to get to work on some long-neglected quilts. The first one is my first quilt with jelly rolls.....While I enjoyed working with those pre-cut strips, in the end these colors dont really move me. Oh well!
I also now have all the blocks done on this applique quilt. It was a Blackbird kit that I got a while back from Cottage Quilts. I just LOVE this one, and I'm looking forward to sewing those rows together and getting the scalloped border on it.
There were a few more pics, but I still need to go through them to see what I have.
I'm looking forward to getting together with the girls again soon............
