Working on #3!

My Seven Sisters and I are having a wonderful time on our retreat!  The weather is awful, but we don’t care – more time inside to sew šŸ™‚

The first project I brought with me was a small quilt to quilt.  I finished what I had planned, but now have an idea to add some detail to one of the areas.  I’ll have to wait until I get home to add that because I didn’t bring the thread with me.  I don’t want to waste sewing time driving to the store.

Project #2 is a quilt top for an eventual pattern and I completed that yesterday.  Project #3 is this diamond quilt.  The blocks are done and I hope to get the top finished before lunch today.  I have never made a quilt with diamonds before so I wanted to give this one a try.  The pattern is by Nellie J Designs and was in the March/April 2011 issue of McCall’s Quilting.  Working with the diamonds was really easy.  Just using the 60 degree line on my regular 6″ x 24″ ruler.  I am not a gadget girl, so if a pattern needs a special ruler, I’m not likely to do it.

I have to leave our retreat right after lunch time today as my sister and her family are coming to stay with us.  They are attending a wedding on her husband’s side of the family and will be here through the weekend.  It will be so nice to have a chance to catch up!

I hope your week as been as wonderful as mine šŸ™‚

    How relaxing this week must be for you. I'm thinking I'll have to plan a quilt retreat — I've never been on one!!!
