Where have I been...

Ok, so I know I fell off the bandwagon and have not posted lately.  Life got busy with being out of town for 16 days and then going to a quilt retreat for 4 days.

Retreat was lots of fun.  We had a great time talking, laughing, quilting, shopping and eating.  During my time at Retreat I had two main goals.  Quilt a baby quilt for my friend Desi’s baby shower, and piece and applique two animal baby quilts.   I am happy to say that not only did I complete the two tops, and quilt the baby quilt, but I also was able to decide on borders for my Easy Street quilt and add two of the borders to the quilt.  The last border will have to wait till April 7th’s quilt get-a-way as it is too large for my current workspace.

So here is a list of my projects in process –
·        Pink animal baby quilt – Quilt (3/28) & Bind
·         Easy Street – Add border #3
·         Green animal baby quilt – Quilt (4/11) & Bind
·         Doll Quilt & Baby Quilt tops – Quilt & Bind them
·         Todem Pole Wall Hanging – Applique
·         Hexi table runner – Baste & Quilt

 So my list of UFO’s is really not that short.  I also one project that I am not working on at the moment: a Red/Black/White Twin sized quilt, which is ready for backing and to be quilted.

While out of town for work I visited 5 quilt shops and found lots of yummy treats.  I am hoping to share them in a post this weekend.  For now I am on a Quilting Supply freeze.  My goal is to not buy any quilting supplies (fabric, thread, etc) for the next 6 months.  I know I will probally not make it the full 6 months, but if try then I can save more money for our pending house move.

This evening I am off to quilt the Pink animal baby quilt.  I still have not decided on how I am going to quilt it, but hopefully the owner of Quilting-By-You can help with some ideas.

That’s it for now.  Have a Hoppy Easter weekend.
