Catching my breath…

Out of the past 15 days, I’ve been away from home for 12 nights and one of those I was home for less than 12 hours!  It has all been wonderful, but, not surprisingly, I came home from Quilt Market with a bad cold.  After Quilt Market, despite the cold, I went on my biannual Handwork retreat.

During the retreat, I worked on my curved piecing project, the Loosely Curved wall hanging, from Angela Pingel‘s book, A Quilter’s Mixology.  I cut everything out before I left and had hoped to finish the piecing of this project, but a few cutting errors, and the fact that I did not pack the fabric I used, stopped me a bit short of that goal.  Here are a few of the sections I did put together.  This is the perfect small project to play around with a bit of curved piecing!  I am really having fun with it and hope to finish it very soon.

The other project I worked on uses this yummy stack of Pie Making Day by Brenda Ratliff.  I can’t show you any more right now, but you’ll get to see the rest later this summer I hope.  I love the bits of cool blue mixed in with the citrusy greens, oranges and yellow!

I hope you have some fun sewing planned for this weekend!  Happy Memorial Day to all my US readers!
