Weekend Update

Okay, so I soon realized that I may have made WAY to may goals and my plans changed quite a bit from my last post. I did get a TON of things done, but there was much more laughing and story telling than I allowed for. Here's how the weekend went and looking back, I should have photographed things before I folded them up for transport so please excuse the wrinkles!

Arrived 3 pm
Departed 9:30 pm
Total 6 1/2 hrs sewing time

~My Favorite bag ~
Made completely from scraps...yes, that is corduroy

~June Bug~
 Forgot thread for applique.
Decided to finish at home where I can arrange the blocks on my design wall.
Wasted 45 min dragging it out, making a plan, and packing it all up again.

~Gumdrop Pillows~
Patterns sold out! Serious bummer
Wasted a chunk of time scouring the store for the pattern.

Started 3 blocks...half done
Used my destitcher (seam ripper) quite a bit...shhhh!

Arrived 10 am
Departed 10 pm
Total 12 hrs sewing time
Finished 3 blocks
These 3 blocks (1/3 of the quilt) took WAY more time
than I ever would have imaged. However, the
outcome is stunning (or so I think!) The blocks finish to 26"

~Civil War Tribute: Month 2~
Took all afternoon / evening
The red/blue center is month 1

Arrived: 9 am
Departed: 5 pm
Total 8 hrs sewing time

~Do the Twist~
Not on my original list.
This was a quilt Jaris Smith had all cut out. All I had to do was piece.
The kit was from the store a few years back. Still very stunning in Civil War prints.

~Old Block of the Month~
Finished 4 blocks!
Only 3 left to go!!!!

~MN Fabric Planning~
I have some ideas on paper now!

As you can see I was productive...even though my list didn't get hit very hard.
I'm still pleased about all the projects I got done and the memories that were made....after all, isn't that why we quilt with friends in the first place ?!
All in all, It was a good time had by all...except maybe Violet because she had to sit by me ;)
We love retreating at the Calico Hutch!
~K and the "Border Babes"
