I started it at the beginning of April. You can read about the start here. And the pattern is available here. It didn't take long to finish. (I really liked that idea!) I asked Pat to make a different stand for my bunny. You can see the original one where the patterns are shown at the link above. Of course, now I need to come up with some more little hangings. That will give me some small designing experience since I've wanted to design more of my own projects.
I did pretty well on my goals this week although I didn't get 2 pillowcases cut out. I'll try to do that today so I have them to take with me on retreat. Yep it's RETREAT WEEK. Sharon's coming up Wednesday and we're heading off on Thursday morning. This year we won't make it as early because if we leave really early we'll end up sitting in rush hour traffic. Bummer. But we'll have plenty of time to sew! I don't think I'm going to do any fabric shopping this year. It's all about the sewing.
I forgot all about the fact that I was the guest blogger at Confessions of a Fabric Addict on Sunday. My post was about using a collection of blocks I had won. Hop on over to read about my process of putting "Opportunity Blocks" together. Here's the quilt after quilting. (If you click on most of my pictures they will enlarge.)
My goals were mostly achieved. I didn't get the pillowcases cut out. On the other hand I did get the quilt above quilted and it wasn't even on my list. Not a bad trade off. I've got two more quilts I'd like to get done between now and Thursday but I'm not holding my breath.

Hand quilt on Civil War quiltSing at last concert maybe
Unfortunately, the Retreat Weekend is the same weekend as my neighborhood chorus and the Spotsylvanians' concerts. I dropped out of the neighborhood chorus but I've gone to all of the Spottsy's rehearsals. So if Sharon and I get back in time, I plan to sing on Sunday afternoon.
I'm off to cut out some pillowcases! Before I go, let me remind you that I'll be linking to Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Moving It Forward, and Design Wall Monday. I will be spending some time surfing the Internet this week. You can get so many good ideas!
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
