Sunday Stash Reoport

I am back from our Sunshine Retreat at Vina Lestonnac in Temecula. It is out in the middle of wine country, a very beautiful, peaceful place.


 There were 26 of us in a nice big room, with plenty of table space to spread out!
 Our theme was Hawaiian Luau, with our friendly mascot below. The food was great, we shared lots of snacks, played Left Center Right game, and Candi brought lots of great door prizes. We even had pajama night, where we sewed all night in our PJ's. Shopping at Primitive Gatherings was also on the schedule along with massages!




I was able to complete the remaining blocks for the center of my Dear Jane, and also completed 4 more triangles. Only 9 more triangles to go and then sewing it all together!




Also completed this weekend,  a UFO from
 last year called Pinwheel parade. This is a a very simple easy quilt by Missouri Star Quilts. Yes, I have a finish to report this week!

A couple of adds to the stash from Primitive Gatherings. More reds for Dear Jane, and a grey to be used in a future project.



I also could not resist the patterns below: Omigosh by Susan Gorman, Among Friends and Pinwheel Garden both by Lisa Bongean, all with a lot of small pieces!


Out retreat ended too soon and we we are all looking forward to next year! Check back tomorrow to see all the little gifts that were brought by all.

Used this week: 9 yards.
Used YTD:  47 yards.
Purchased this week: 3 yards
Purchased YTD: 38 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 9 yards.

Up on the design wall this week will be the block of the month for Sunshine, along with making star blocks as my contribution to our annual opportunity quilt. This should be a fun quilt with bright happy colors. More pictures and where you can buy tickets in a later post.


Above are all the pieces cut out and ready to sew. Just need to pull one more black from the stash,

Below are more Dear Jane Blocks. I am down to the last 6 blocks and will switch to working on the rest of the triangles next.

Design Wall Monday

This week on my design wall are more completed blocks for my Dear Jane. Only a few more to go and then on to the last of the Triangles.



I am going to take a break from Dear Jane to finish up the quilt for Marigold and to work on the quilt that Sandi and I are making as an opportunity quilt for Sunshine. It is due in May and we need to get it going! Dear Jane will be the project I will be taking with me on our quilting retreat in May.

Have a great week!
