Today is the day, I am going on my yearly quilt retreat with my friends!!! Yahoooooo!!! As soon as my hubby gets home I am going. I have the GPS set and bags packed. I can't wait to get some quality quilting time in and projects complete.As you can see my projects are in my box, I know that I have plenty to do and get done. What do you think, am I too optimistic in thinking that I will get all the projects I am bringing done during the course of the weekend? Remember it is non-stop sewing time....

I took a picture of my design wall and as you can see I have several projects on it. At the top you can see my BOM (Block of the Month) which I am teaching at Gone QuiltingI will be working on 2 more blocks for the BOM at the quilt retreat this weekend...I can't wait. The appliqué block has been like this for years, as I have been awaiting that "light bulb" moment to tell me how to finish it.

Therefore a new one is in the works and couldn't be more timely. The winter is coming!!!This fabric is from a new collection that the local quilt shop.. Gone Quilting has, it is called Sachet. I just loved the colors even though they don't match my living...

Hi Justine,Thanks for the post, and boy is that a good question. How many inches of binding did they require for the Quilt Of Belonging? I suppose that would require my mathematical skills, and they are questionable at best. I am sure in short it was a lot. I'll have to get back to you on the long answer. However, I did buy the book and will look there, and I quickly looked on their website and came up empty handed. I 'll keep trying!!Jackie

Hi All,This is a first for me!! I have gone techno on my own. I thought that I would create this blog to chronicle all my quilt happenings. I would love all my friends opinions on them, as I know that you all have one. Right now, I am busy getting back into the swing of things since returning from Houston's International Quilt Market. I met lots of Quilting "ICONS".... Ricky Tims, Carol Doak, Linda Jenkins, Becky Goldsmith, Kaffe Fassett, Paula Nadelstern, just to name a few.
