Here is what I worked on:
|Ruby, my painted Featherweight, to commemorate the Red and White Quilt and the year 2014|
I started a new class sample, a folded log cabin--I'll save that for another post--when it's farther along.
Then I got to work on a class sample for Fall: Southern Star by Calico Carriage Quilt Designs. This is my go-to quilt for gifts--all of our nieces and nephews have received one upon college graduation. As I've given all of them away, I needed to make another sample. I got things a bit off-kilter, as Sharon discovered when we were packing up. My successful full day of work needed some fixing:
It is easy to get these pieces mixed up and I sure did. So last night I spent some quality time with my stitch ripper and removed the pieces that were turned the wrong way--of course, they were interior pieces, not on the outside edge AND only 1 star point was correct--UGH! Boulder, Boulder, Boulder... (That's a big dam...)
Today I fixed it:
Ellen worked on these and more:

Sharon was in heaven making Antique Rose Star blocks, each one more delicious than the last:
And here we are in our send-off selfie:
It's great to spend time with friends. We're already planning for next year.
