I've been working on this chunky churn dash from Quiltville.com for quite a while. I got the fabric for the broken dishes blocks on the way to retreat. I substituted a red I had for the red I purchased just so I could keep the larger hunk of fabric.
Saturday I was able to join with another member of Country Piecemakers to give a short talk on using scraps in quilts and teach how to make this quilt. Many thanks go to Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.com for giving us permission to do this.
Visit Patchwork Times to see more design walls this week.
Here's what else I bought last weekend. Yes, I kind of went wild buying fabric again. Sigh. Of course every thing I bought was on sale -- some was just $4 a yard! Well every thing except that fun pink, orange, and yellow floral print. I'm making a onsie dress out of it... and maybe that little hat. And, then I guess I may make that cute little sun dress. That pattern covers 6 mo to 5 yr old sizes. Super deal. Maybe a dress or two every summer!
Goals for week of 6/6/11

Yep, I'm heading off to Columbus, Ohio with Sharon. We're taking a few classes with Susan Cleveland. We took one of her classes at Faithful Circles a few months ago and really enjoyed it so decided to take some more. These are really technique classes so you don't end up starting a UFO! Sharon's brother lives in Cleveland and has graciously allowed us (well, more like me) to stay there. It's another long trip but we should have a blast!
I won't be doing much quilting but I will definitely be thinking about quilts!
Happy quilting all! Bonnie
