Preemie Quilts


Today I was handed a bag with some preemie quilts for the guild’s ongoing donation project. 

Do you recognize this pattern?  These were made from last year’s Guild Mystery.  Don’t they look great!  Thanks, Grace!

February’s UFO (#10) is done





This month’s UFO was #10 – which made it a simple task for me.  This little NOEL wall-hanging was a teaching sample from 2009.   I took it to retreat with me and managed to sew some batting scraps together for it, back it with muslin, and get the quilting done.  When I got back home it just needed binding and a hanging sleeve.  So now it is done done!   And I’m actually ahead of the game for Christmas, for a change!

Back from Retreat

A group of quilters retreated to Highland House at Logan Lake on the weekend. 

We sewed and visited and sewed and ate and sewed and laughed.  Blocks were made, tops were assembled, layers were sandwiched, quilting was done, and a good time was had by all.


On the first evening retreat participants all made blocks for this quilt top, and Marilyn was the lucky quilter who got to take it home with her on Sunday.  We’ll expect to see it all quilted and finished next year, Marilyn!
