I'm back from my second retreat--whew!
It was so great, but now I need to recharge the batteries.
I may be too old to have that much fun--lol!
|My goal at this retreat was to finish all the parts (hundreds!) needed for Jamestown Landing. I wasn't sure it was going to happen, but even though I was bored out of my mind, I did it! I realized that although I love just about every quilt in Bonnie Hunter's String Fling book, I don't think string piecing is for me.|
|I even got a few blocks put together.|
|You may remember when I made a block in Bonnie's class that I wasn't too pleased with the darker strings in my block shown on the far right. Before making the rest of the string blocks at this retreat, I pulled out most of the darker fabric strings from my bin and I'm much happier with the results.|
|My Little Boys Britches quilt is going to be my May One Monthly Goal to finish.|
|My setting triangles are a mottled Jeanne Horton fabric so I thought this print also designed by her would make a nice back.|
|I'm using the same fabric for the binding also, since the green print I had originally planned to use doesn't look so great with the backing. Hopefully I can get this completed right away--I have lots of yard work to do now that the snow has finally melted!|
