home from retreat


Before I get back to the new york beauty project I am sharing a finished top from retreat-I went with three charms packs and yardage - added a bit from some shopping we enjoyed and came up with my own idea for blocks. I now need to piece a backing and get this quilted-have not made up my mind whether I will tackle it or not, as it measures 62 by 72.5 inches. I have not taken a photo of the other project I got to the completed rows stage...if I find time tonight, I will throw it up on the design wall and take a photo. This completed top will be a gift for a family member...

OHHH, very pretty! I love how the little four patches just twinkle in there, Cher. Gotta love the pinks.

Fun! love the blend of various square blocks. Pink! Can't go wrong with pink..the "family member" is really going to like snuggling up in this.

Sounds like retreat was a busy time for you...always nice to get away and do something you enjoy.

Hi Cher
That pink quilt is so pretty. Hope you had a safe trip home and have gotten caught up on your sleep.

I had fun meeting and sewing with you. You're honest and straightforward which are qualities I admire.

Tonight is the Homecoming game and pouring down rain. Don't think I'm going!

Take care & write sometime. MAD

Glad you're home, safe Cher!

This is one adorable quilt. Even if it isn't going to Alice...to me it is very Alice-inspired! "Precious and dainty."

hi Cher, too, too fun, all that pink! I especially like that you did your "own" thing with it! It looks like a fun top to make or to use, or both!! Glad you had a good time and relaxed for a change.*VBS* Hugs, Finn
