Design Wall Monday–August 15, 2015

I just returned from a five day retreat with my Quilters by the Sea quilt guild.  I had a wonderful time sewing, eating, drinking wine but most of all visiting with many old friends.  Ii loved every minute of it and actually got a few things accomplished. 

I finished several quilts by adding binding, made a wallet/clutch, made a baby quilt top and started a hexi project to put on a cushion.

This is a quilt that I added the binding to.  I rescued the quilt top from a guild boutique, had it quilted and then I added the binding.  This is possible my very favorite quilt, ever!!!!

This is a cute little quilt that I made using scraps left over from a prior project.  I finished it by adding a faux flange binding while at retreat.

A One Block Wonder that I made a while back but recently completed the top and added the binding at the retreat.  Here’s a picture of the back.  This is the panel I used to make the hexagon blocks.

Here are some pillow shams that also needed the binding added.  Done and done!

Such a cute wallet/clutch/purse.  These patterns are surprisingly easy to make if you follow the step-to-step instructions.

This is very hard to see but it’s a really sweet baby quilt that has elephants and geese.  It’s just a top for now but hopefully I’ll get it quilted soon.

Overall, I’d say it was a great, productive retreat.

Enjoy,
