Monday Meandering 1 - 20 - 2020

I'm back to sewing again! Friday I drove down to Sharon's house for a mini quilt retreat.  Last year our "in home retreat" with Nancy and MaryBeth was held over MLK holiday weekend. We thought we'd be repeating this weekend at my house but MB had tickets for Hamilton in NYC so the retreat was postponed.  Sharon and I decided to get together to sew anyway.  

I don't have many pictures yet of what I've been working on but I did get the rows sewn on my Happy Blocks quilt.  Once I get home all I'll need to do is find some backing for this quilt and I can throw it on Ruthie to quilt it. I think I have some fabric at home I could use.  

I've had so much fun making these blocks and putting this quilt together.  Many of the blocks were made as "leader/enders" during my Christmas sewing.  I even remember buying some of these fabrics and what I used most of the fabric for.  The orange one in the top row -- soccer balls -- was the backing of Brian's quilt.  Perfect addition to this quilt.  Many of the fabrics were fat quarters that I sometimes buy to add to my novelty prints collection.  

At the beginning of January Pat and I took an 11 day Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale.  I'll be sharing some pictures over the next few weeks.  Here's the first stop -- Half Moon Cay. Great weather, lovely vista and relaxing on our balcony.  Wonderful! 

That's it for now.  I'm linking up with my regular parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, and Design Wall Monday. (I'll link this one up when it becomes available and when I remember!) 

I'm looking forward to a great week of sewing, some reading, and maybe some organizing in the studio. 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. Fun fabrics! I like the big trucks and the cute frog on the left side.

  2. LOVE those Happy blocks, Bonnie!! Enjoy your mini retreat. I'm sure you will be SEW productive!

  3. You have such a great collection of novelty fabrics! Happy blocks are so fun. My guild chose that block as our semi-annual retreat block, so I'll be making a bunch of them myself this year :)


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
