PMQ Retreat January 2013

Stupendous stitching

It’s now day 3 of the annual January retreat of the Piece Mill Quilters. We have 15 women designing, creating, talking, sharing, eating and have a grand time. As usual, I brought many more projects than I could possibly get done. I started on the first day by finishing my latest Stupendous Stitching project. This little piece is about 17″ square.

Going for the Gold

My next project, Going for the Gold, was a One Block Wonder quilt. My Rambling Art Group all bought the same fabric and the challenge was to make a unique quilt. The quilt top is about 3′ by 4′ and took about a day and half to design and piece. Hawaiian Ring TossOn the third day of retreat, I went for the quick and fun! Beth brought me a stack of Hawaiian fat quarters which I used to make the Swirly Girls Ring Toss pattern. I used the new circle cutting ruler from Creative Grids to cut the rings and circles. Here’s a detail.ring toss detailThe fabrics make it very bright and cheerful!
