WIP Wednesday #19

Haven't been keeping up with this blog very well but here's some of what I have been up to...

I was invited to a Birthday quilting retreat for a wonderful friend of mine.  We were a group of six and spent 4 nights in Rockport, MA and had a FABULOUS TIME!!  It was so much fun spending time with friends :)  One fun thing we did was to distribute fabric to all the guests and had them make blocks for the guest of honor.  Quite a few were made but this is the only picture I have. At least you can see the colors!

 I made a D9P quilt as a table top for my Mom's birthday present.  Thought it was time for some bright spring colors!

I also used this project to practice my Stippling for Leah Day's Quilt-A-Long.

I've also been working on my next fiber art challenge piece for the Creative Conglomeration!  Excited about this piece! The theme is yellow, with a small amount of purple.  Size 15"x15" and due next Tuesday!  No pictures yet but just imagine....  
Sunshine through a 'cathedral window'....  Pictures next week!

I'll post a picture of all the blocks we made for the birthday girl when I catch up with it.

Smiles, Marie
