The quilt retreat was awesome as usual. As usual, I bounced between working on different projects over the weekend.
I finished the 3 Barbie doll blankets for the girls for their birthdays. Now I just have the pillows to stuff and the beds to make. I put their name on each blanket.
I got a start on the 9 microwave hotpads that I am making to go in the boutique booth for our guild at the Common Threads quilt show in Wichita next month.
I worked on the Arkansas Crossroads quilt top. What I've found is that I will need to make quite a few more half square triangles. Now I'm deciding whether I want to make those first or finish what blocks I can and actually know how many I need to make. I'm sure the latter would be the wiser choice.
I worked on making more blue and brown yo-yo's for the table runner order. I laid them out only to find out just how many more of those I also need to make to finish it.
I pulled out the black and white with a touch of red blocks that I had made at the last retreat in October. Again, what I found is just how many more I need to make to finish it. This picture is the blocks on the board just laid out. I did do more work after this picture--sewed more strips together, sewed some pieces for the backing, but I need to find more black and white to make more blocks too.
