Design Wall Monday 6-16-2014

I was busy this past week but I don't have much to show for it.  So I'll share some more photos from the retreat.  First up is Jane's quilt.  She printed the leaf blocks while attending an Elder Hostel class.  Most of the printing was done on paper but she brought some fabric to print on.  I thought this finished top was gorgeous.  Hum, I probably should have turned this around.  Sorry. Although interesting, the shaft of light does detract from the top.  Unfortunately this is the only shot I got of the top put together. 

Next up is my Carolina Christmas.  By the end of the retreat the center was complete and I was working on the pieced border.  I am now using them as leader enders but I am almost finished with making all the units for the borders. 

Saturday was mystery day at Country Piecemakers.  We were sewing up a storm.  I forgot to take any pictures of my progress.  However, I did snap this picture of part of a row -- I believe these are Kay's  blocks.  Augusta Cole was a great teacher and full of energy.  This was a very well organized mystery and not all that hard.  There were only 4 clues. I got one completely done, and enough units from each section done so I could layout at least three blocks.  As much as I love my Featherweight it does stitch slowly.  Although, that probably wasn't the real issue of my being slow.  For now I will put mine aside until I finish the Caroline Christmas border and then this will move up and be my leader ender project.  

A really good week for accomplishing my goals!
