Retreat Quilt

Retreat Quilt

I’ve been pushing really hard to get my mom’s bedroom done. I finished the second quilt for her yesterday, and have it washed and it’s drying now.

I managed to get three sides of it bound yesterday at the Quilt House over in Clarksville, and finished the remaining side last night. We always have such a great time there!

Pictured are some of the quilts the girls have been working on. And an adorable model wearing a zipper wig!

My poor brain has been spinning trying to come up with a project for the quilt retreat which is a week away, but most of my designs these days are just too complex for me to do at a retreat. Too many distractions!

I woke up this morning decided a Quilt of Valor would be perfect. I designed a super easy layout this morning in Electric Quilt and have begun cutting it, yippee!

I haven’t made one this year, so I’m due.

One of my girlfriends had a birthday this week. We now celebrate birthday “week” instead of day, and do our best to spread the fun over several days. At our age, we’ve earned a bit of extra fun!

Friends, beer and pizza. Hard to go wrong.

  1. Your Quilt of Valor design is beautiful. What a brilliant idea to have a celebration week for a birthday. I will be hinting for this next year myself *giggle*. The girl’s quilts are lovely and the little model, as you say, is adorable. 🙂

    1. Thank you Maureen, and a week long celebration is so much fun!

  2. Your QOV design is beautiful but it doesn’t look all that simple to me. Enjoy your retreat.

    1. Thank you Linda, it will be a piece of cake 🙂
