Design Wall Monday

This week on my wall will be the last of the DJ Triangles. Hope to have all complete by Sunday and then start putting rows together! Eight more to go.

During Retreat, there were many great little gifts given out by all the ladies. Very cute pincushions, a trash bag to hang in the car (in the shoe fabric), fabric strips, 5"squares and a charm pack. A photo card with post it notes-Picture from last year's retreat, and many other fun little trinkets.

 I gave out the Mug Rug below. These were fast and fun, the bindings were the most time consuming part, as I had to make 26 of these!

There were also some of us who made the cute cat block below. These were all raffled off and Bonnie was the winner. This cat quilt will be a future UFO for me!

Have a great week and Happy Sewing!

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 YTD:  47 yards.

Sunday Stash Report

Nothing finished this week, except some blocks for Sunshine Guild. These blocks will be used in our opportunity quilt for 2018. Everyone took a small part to work on and we will be putting together during retreat next week.

Next up was the BOM. Very easy and nice results. This will make a pretty quilt.
