Retreat Sewing

The yearly guild retreat was held at the end of March and I pre-cut four kits using Mary's Quick Strippie Quilt pattern. This is a fun and simple pattern and Mary is very generous to give it away. Thanks Mary! I wanted simple sewing. Since these will be donations, I added borders to bring them up to a size that is acceptable for certain organizations.


Don't you just love that old Bill Blass sunflower fabric?


And here is another using not only that Bill Blass fabric but a coordinating one also.

Hot Muscle Cars

How about some muscles cars? The medium sized strip is a fabric that looks like the 'for sale' section in a newspaper.


This one made me dizzy to work on as my eyes couldn't handle the black and white checked overload. Love the Robert Hoffman cherry fabrics
