I feel like I have been out of commission as far as my quilting. School is in full swing and I do enjoy my new position. I don't seem to have energy to do any sewing or needlework after I make dinner and sit down.
This is the only thing I have to show for 2 weeks. I have done other sewing last weekend. I had a wonderful time at a retreat on a lake with my guild. The weather was in the low 80s, a big change from the cooler days we have. But inside the air conditioning was running, and I was cold. So hard to plan for clothing.
But... I did put blocks together for a small baby quilt that had been leftover from my grandson's big boy quilt. And I left it with one of the members to practice quilting on her long arm machine.
This is my stash bee block for September. ( We did another like it earlier in the year.)
We of course, went to the local quilt store and I purchased some Wisconsin red Bucky Badger fabric along with some blacks and whites. I am planning to make a throw for my daughter's boyfriend. He did graduate fro UW Wisconsin. So I hope he will like it. I plan to use the Yellow Brick Road pattern from Terry Atkinson.
I also started a tree skirt for my nephew whose wedding will be the end of October
These are the colors turned 90 degrees. I have a few other strips to add to it and then cut wedges and assemble. I had a friend there who had the beautiful red tree fabric left over from another project. It is perfect to go with my Tonga strips of reds and greens. I was so appreciative to find just the right fabric.
