What a great retreat weekend here in Alabama...
For starters, I finished quilting the new Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, Celtic Solstice. This is a finish for me and I am so excited. The quilting design is a free handed meandering flower. I think it's pretty cute. Most of these pieces where cut using the Acccuquilt GO! Fabric system.
Next, I finished a snowball quilt top for an upcoming class that I will be teaching in earlier February. Need to figure out backing and get this one quilted quickly.
Then for the joy of my weekend, on the Sewitsforsale group, I purchased some pattern for the adoption call, or Cabbage Patch doll, for my sweet little granddaughter. I finished one of them this weekend and she was so excited. We then went to the dollar store and bought some baby clothes (yep, I said bought, I have no desire to make those). I don't think she has put the doll down for more than a few minutes since I finished it. She is4, by the way, and such a blessing.
Also pieced 10 more blocks for the string quilt, and like the rest of you, my bucket is not emptying at all. That makes a total of 50 squares, but I plan to make a Roman String so that means 100 half-square triangles. I think I have enough. I will use my AccuQuilt to cut these as well. I will cut the string blocks and the solid using my 6" half square triangle die. Can't wait.
Thinking of adding this as a class soon. Not sure if it would be more of a "sew in" instead of a class. We'll see!
And last, work on my sweet daughter in laws double wedding ring. A slow project that I just work on a little bit at a time. If only the piecing went as fast as the cutting.
For me, it was a nonstop weekend. I only have two more weekends that my guys will be hunting and after that, I will slow down a little bit. Gonna take full advantage of the last two.
