This past weekend we had a Quilt Chicks retreat in Madison, Wisconsin. The weather was dreary, but maybe that was a good thing so we could get more sewing done. It is always a blast to have a bunch of quilters in the same room. So many ideas floating around and lots of creative ideas to help get the juices flowing.
Here are two of the projects I was able to put together:
The first one is a retro panel from a fabric line called Kitty Corn. I thought it was so cute, but loved the more muted colors. I had fun with the borders and even had some inspiration from my fellow quilters.
I have another lap quilt made from batiks, but I forgot to get a photo once it was together and now it is at the long-armer to take to my daughter in law this week.
My dear spouse and I are looking forward to seeing my son and family, ( mostly the boys, right) this week. Covid is going around. In fact our little guy the 5 year old came down with it early last week. We hope that is the end of it. So far no new cases in the family. Fortunately, the parents have all 3 vaccines. This will be me in a week.
