Keeping Busy

HIt is not difficult for me to keep busy - whether it be recently or times in the past.

As a quilter, I have many projects to do!

Today I have been working on a precut Block of the Month that I found recently when I was rearranging for a new purchase.  I decided to try to put together one block a day.  It will keep me busy.








I also resurrected a number of tops that need to be quilted.

This one was sandwiched today and put on the Babylock Coronet.
I have a little bit done.  Now that I have a plan for the quilting it will proceed quickly.

"Birds on a Wire" by Michelle Renee Hiatt is ready to be assembled.


That will happen sometimes this week.

There are many more projects crying out to me!

Some just need a final border,

( yes, Eileen, that background was your challenge fabric!)

Some only need their binding,


And finally, some are waiting to be started.



These times can be stressful, or they can be viewed as time to work on projects.
You are the one who can choose.

Me? I choose projects!

January 2020 Retreats

Retreats are the best thing ever!

You get to sew with friends, eat great food and see wonderful projects that will inspire you.

The past three retreats can be seen under the hashtag of #quiltersretreat2020 in Instagram.
all put together in one tidy space.

But if you are not an Instagram person, I will give you a view here of some of the projects that showed up at Retreat these past few weeks in January 2020.




Janice's Snowman made with a Creative Grids ruler.


Sharon's Storm at Sea made in a class with David Sirota

Many more photos were taken of the beautiful projects that happened over the weekends.

In the Studio Classroom window...


Recently this piece made its presence known in the window of the Studio Classroom.

This little quilt is the pattern found in the 4 1/2 inch On Point Ruler package from Quiilt in a Day.

I used a charm pack of Tula Pink's "Tabby Road" fabric to make this quilt

The On-Point ruler make the "kite" shape that is found in many quilt blocks.

Why not stop in some day for a quick tutorial!

Enjoy your day!

Louise, on the island, catching up on things!
