Longarm quilting and snippets of my life

I’m back

I came back from my quilt retreat with my friends. As always, we had a wonderful time. The group of us are good friends, and we sneak away to these retreats every 3 months. It really helps to connect with my friends like this. I truly cherish them all. I was pretty productive too. I got all the rows put together on my Tennessee Waltz quilt. tennessee-waltz.jpg It has dark purple, red and green. All I have to do is make the borders. I also made a lap quilt for my sister in law’s 50 birthday bears-quilt.jpg This was fun to make. I bought the kit on ebay, and it was an easy one. She’s still into tie dye, so when I saw this, I knew it was the right one for her.

I also finished a customer quilt I’ve been working on for a week. nedra-black-and-white.jpgnedra-borders.jpgnedra-feathers.jpg

I’m off to watch American Idol. Have a good week.

  1. I’m glad you had such a great and productive time at your retreat! I can’t believe you go so much done! I love the Tennesee Waltz quilt for your bed, and that “tie dye” look is wild. Love what you did on the customer quilt too. I need to be that productive!
