A Few Accomplishments

I got a few things finished at my second retreat. 
After I put together Step One of Temecula's Secret Santa (sorry, no photo), I started on Twilight. I managed to get all the stars done on the first day, and finished the whole quilt on the second day of camp. 

This little quilt is so cute--it measures approximately 25" x 33" and the pattern is from Buttermilk Basin. 

My 4" x 5" Anthology Quilt so far.
Maybe I should have made this my first project to work on at camp, but I was too excited about digging into my new Twilight quilt.  I got some of the Anthology rows sewn at the earlier retreat and now all of the vertical rows are done. The rows have all been numbered, so it's just a matter of sewing them all together to complete the top. First though,  the plan is to cut out the Secret Santa Step Two 9 patches to use as leader/enders while I sew the rest of this quilt. 

This is going to be the extent of my Sanjou from the Humble Quilts SAL.
I wanted to make mine a bit bigger and intended to do the final border with square in a square blocks to look similar to Lori's inspiration quilt. Last night I came to my senses and just added a plain border. It now measures 28"square. Next decision: Red binding or scrappy? Or maybe scrappy red?

  1. Oooo, Twilight is so pretty. Second post in a row that I have seen with a little quilt in that color scheme. Just love it!
    Great progress on your anthology quilt.
    Your Sanjou looks very nice. I think a read binding will be a good finish.

  6. You got quite a bit accomplished. I especially like your Twilight quilt - nice colors and the piecing is wonderful. Is the design from a pattern or a book?

  8. Love the cheddar in Twilight. You got a lot done at your retreat. I haven't been to one in years. I always felt like I got more done at home in my own sewing room but then you miss all the fun of being with other quilters.

  10. I would have started on Twilight as well. Super cute. Always love that combo. Might have to check that out. Sweet version of Sajou. It was a fun one to work on. I'm ready to work on the Temecula's Secret Santa quilt this week.

  11. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this information together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

  12. That was a productive retreat! Twilight is gorgeous!
    And I vote for a scrappy red binding for Sajou - which is also gorgeous!

  15. Your quilt with the stars.... I was imagining it as a bed-size quilt. What a surprise to learn that it is so small. It is stunning!
