I had the good fortune to be able to attend another quilting retreat this past weekend. It was so nice to just be away. This pattern is called a watercolor wreath. A few years ago I gave my SIL one that I had made.So I needed a new one. A friend of mine gave up quilting and she handed over all her stuff. In there was this one partially finished. What better way to replace mine.
I couldn't resist finishing it. I need to do something with the outside border but I'll hang it up for now and just keep looking at it till I decide. It looks a little choppy in the picture but once it is quilted it blends really well.
We were given a favor at one meal that was a kit for a cell phone case. I had been thinking about making one so whipped this one up to see what it looked like finished. It's not really my colors but I did like how quickly it went together. Now I can make several in my colors.
Here is a finished top of Michelle's (one of my quilting buddies). And me ...of course.
These are my Kon-O-Kwee quilting buddies. Kim,Michelle and Karen. They are sisters besides. Didn't get pictures of the rest of my quilting friends but I'll get them next time.
I did get some much needed instructions on my Designer 1 embroidery machine. I hope to get practicing on it soon.
Be sure and check out Leslie's blog to see what others are working on.
