Reached My Goal

Shown here are my latest baby quilts I finished and have given away.  This means I have reached my goal of finishing seven quilts during 2016.  The blue one had a binding, but I gave it away today without getting a picture. That's OK as I am doing a happy dance of reaching my goal. This means I did two more quilts than I did in 2015. I enjoyed doing all of them.

Guild 2016 Retreat

I am having fun at my local Guild Retreat with 17 ladies.  A lot of chatting and laughing is going on which is all part of the retreat fun.  And oh, did I mention a lot of food  snacks being eaten.  We all worked on the "Fold'n Stitch Wreath" today.  Then there will be tomorrow with more fun and more pictures.

Baby Quilt

I finally got a baby quilt done and will be sending it in the mail next week. I have a guild quilt retreat this week.  Now I am going to start another baby quilt.  It's been a "baby kind of year" for my quilt making.  This one gets me closer to my goal of 7 quilts for this year as this is the 6th one. I think setting a goal has been good for me as I have accomplished more this past year.

Garlic Knots

I am on the band wagon with Quiltville's Garlic knots  quilt block.  I guess I could say that I am "addicted" to Bonnie's scrap quilts.

Spinning Table Topper

This spinning table topper is a challenge and it had to be done by Aug 1.  My small group has a retreat then.  About every six months we do a fabric challenge and one member is chosen to bring the challenge fabric from their stash.  We have six members in our small group. I brought the really dark fabric this past March.  We usually bring fat quarters to one half yard.  It is so much fun seeing what the gals come up with to make with the challenge fabric.  The fabric can be pretty or ugly.  In August a designated lady will bring fabric for all of us.  We put $5 each in the pot and outsiders during the retreat time will vote on the one they like.  Winner takes the whole pot.  It's just a bunch of fun.

Abigail's Blanket

Tonight I finished a crocheted baby blanket for my 2nd Granddaughter Abigail Leeann. She is due in 1 week and I am happy to get this done.  I know her big sister Gracie is excited to have a little sister. They will be almost 3 years apart.  She calls me GG and I am excited for Abigail to arrive.  I am also working on a quilt for her.

Current 2016 Projects

I have 2 quilts quilted toward my goal of 7 for 2016. The first quilt has a challenge fabric (lighter Blue) for a retreat challenge at Camp Canyon, Hinton, OK.  The second one was a ready made table topper I used as a vintage piece.  I used the rulers for my domestic machine.  Love those rulers.
