I Got a Lot Done

I'm finally catching up, I think...finally getting a post with what I got done last week at our retreat. It's sure amazing how much can get done when there's no phone, no computer, no laundry, cooking, cleaning...really not anything but sewing, eating, talking, laughing and sewing more.

This is Moose on the Loose......Carrie Nelson designed this wonderful quilt and has the instructions on her blog. It was so much fun to do. Since I got home I added the other 3 piano key borders and the black outer border. I'll show it again when it's quilted.

I got this baby quilt done......lots and lots of 30's fabrics. Can't wait to get this one back from the quilter...I think something swirly would be fun.

Here's mom's birthday quilt...finished up the blocks and got the sashings on the blocks.......today I got the sashings done between the rows and got all the rows sewn together...tomorrow the borders go on....YIPPEE!

Hmmm,who is this quilter? She sure had FUN!

Carol,
Your Moose on the loose looks great but I really love the softness of colors in your baby quilt. I'll be back to see what you selected for quilting that one. Beautiful quilts all.
