Beginning of the end?

I am in the home stretch. Hope to finish my daughter's very belated wedding quilt soon. After finishing the center of the quilt, Celestial Puzzle from Glad Creations, I decided not to do more stars for the border. Instead I will add some solid color blocks. Can I get it done this week? Wish me luck and check in next week!

Carrie quilting at Camp Lebanon

Carrie has joined me for many years at a local quilting retreat at Camp Lebanon. This weekend she worked on a throw and a table runner. Fabrics purchased different years, but definitely coordinate.

Flower Box

At the retreat this weekend, several were making a nine-patch variation called Flower Box. In time for Spring? I hope so. Still snow on the ground here in Minnesota, but we are definitely thinking Spring. One gal did the quilt with silks. Lovely, but boy did it fray!!

I now have the pattern, and hope to try to use up some of my stash soon. Can you find the nine patch?

This month a dear friend moved away to pursue a career in service for others. Because she was an important part of our lives, we gave her a quilt to remember us by. We wish her happiness ,and hope this quilt gives her comfort as she and her family embrace this new challenge.

Girl Scout Cookies

Why do Girl Scouts sell cookies in the middle of winter? I wonder about that some days. Luckily on this day we had no wind or snow. The girls had a great sale outside a local coffee shop.
