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.
