Last weekend found me sewing my little heart out at our guild retreat. We hold these two or three times a year. We start on Friday morning and pack and clean up on Sunday after lunch. In between, all we do is talk, sew and eat - bliss!
I got my applique block (it's a pattern from Material Obsession Two) bordered and sewn into my blue and white quilt top. I also added a lilac border around the whole thing and am very pleased with what I see so far. However, it's not quite big enough so I'm collecting light blue fabrics for a eight inch wide border and will be subjecting myself to more applique in a similar style.
And here is how my paper-piecing project is coming along. Sorry about the dark photo - is was taken at night at my friend's house where I go for my 'stave off insanity' Wednesday night quilting session.
And, just for fun, here is one of the causes of my budding insanity!
