retreat continued...

This is "I Think I Can" baby quilt that I donated. It was quick and easy to do except for the lousy stretchy minkee type border. But some baby will like the soft edges and not notice that they 'wave' a bit! LOLWoven Triple Irish Chain--this was using Lakehouse fabric (I love their stuff!) and designed by Mark Lipinski. I just loved it when I saw it in a magazine (McCall's??) and when I got the fabric, I realized that the picture made it look MUCH larger than it was. I had wanted it for a double bed, so had to make it much larger. 2480 little 1" squares later...it's done!

Gratitude is finally done! My students quilted it on Zoe for practice and I got the binding finished and label on at the retreat. and the backing is comprised of what yardage I had of 30's prints and I used some of the FQ's that were in the bundle that I didn't use in the challenge. and I was one tired puppy on Sunday night! I went to bed early--like 9:30--unheard of for me! But I only had about 6-7 hours sleep all weekend. Sewing until 3 AM and then I had breakfast duty on Saturday morning didn't help! Sew much fun!!

That woven Irish Chain is a stunner - it's been on my to-do list too, ever since the magazine came out. 2480 pieces???? YIKES!
You sure had a super retreat, love the results - Psalm of Comfort and Tulip Wreath are my faves I think, but they're all great.
