Retreat & Progress I made on Star BOM

We had a good time. There were a total of seven.  I'm sorry I didn't think to get someone to take a group picture. Again LOTS of food. I told the ladies--please rethink the amount of food you bring next time. We ate like queens.
Yes, Patsy, there is always lots of talking, too! We call it fellowship. But lots of sewing, too. LOL


I got all the sashing strips, blocks, and setting triangles sewn together and started sewing inner borders before time to go.  I did some sewing and unsewing. LOL It helps to read the instructions correctly. Late night sewing is not good when there are detailed instructions. LOL That's DH holding the quilt top. I will sew the red top and bottom inner border on hopefully tonight and then cut the other inner border that is the same color as the background in the blocks. Then I will start working on the ribbon border as I have time.

Blessings,

  2. Hello this fine Saturday morning!

    I love your star quilt and I'm so glad you had lots of fun at the retreat.

    Nothing going on here. I did buy an Alan Jackson CD yesterday that I've been looking for called "Precious Memories." A couple of weeks ago I heard him sing some of the songs on the GAC channel.

    Let me know when you grandbaby enters our world. I pray all goes well.

    Have a great weekend,
    Patsy

  3. It is looking good...I find it hard to sew things that need intense attention to at retreats..today I am 100% better and played with my EQ6...never have done much with it...but wanted to make the block I am doing and play with color...really enjoyed it...will look forward to see the finished quilt...blessings...M
