>Ambitious is Good: Retreat Update


I guess taking 4 projects is a good thing. I finished 2 quilt tops and 1 entire quilt, pieced, quilted it and put on the binding!! I guess I was afraid of the quilt police (NOT!)
Here’s my finished baby quilt called Squared Up. I can’t believe this was a UFO for SO long! It probably took me all of 5 hours from start to finish.

Close up, LOVE that binding!
Here is a wonky log cabin and Robot quilt. It started with just a panel of robots and some extra cogs in yellow and black. I mixed in some of my Moda Marbles from a jelly roll and it was PERFECT! I LOVE wonky log cabin quilts! My shirt says “What happens at quilt retreat stays at quilt retreat” Until, of course I blog about it on Monday. Haha.

 Here is the Paris Birds quilt I took with me. I need to add two borders but it was the first top I finished on Friday. (The blocks were already pieced, I just put them together into the top)

There was a fourth project I took with me that didn’t get started, it was from the BRAND NEW Quilts and More, which I just got on Thursday. I’ll post more about that later. So what did YOU finish this weekend??

Also, I think wearing the shirt Failure is NOT an Option helped when we played Left, Right, Center on Friday night because I WON! Yep, 40 random fat quarters! Hmm, wonder what I’ll do with those?

Happy Stitches,
