Hello Everyone,

Most of you know that I have flown the coop for the week to go on a retreat that my friend Pam and I had been anticipating for a whole year!

We are in Montana at Judy Niemeyer's retreat center and we are having a blast! We got here a few days early to do some sight seeing and I will share that with you all on a later post. I thought you might be slightly more interested in what I am working on... project wise.

I started with these...

I made quite a bit of them and then put them on the design wall...

Hmmm... it must have been way too early in the morning when I did this?

There, now that is much better! This is the center of the quilt. All from Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

I look pretty pleased with myself at this point, but the day was still young and I had a lot more sewing to be done.

I completed a few more units and added them to the Lone Star. Definitely changing the shape of things to come. I continued to press on and was able to complete this...

Now I am really loving the way it looks. You know me, I am definitely not afraid of color. Just a little more to do and hopefully by late tomorrow I will have a quilt top! Just maybe.

For inquiring minds, all the fabrics are Kaffe Fassett and the Pattern is Summer Solstice by Judy Niemeyer. All of which can be found in my online shop.

While I am away... Don't forget...

Until Next Time...
