Several weeks ago, I had a post showing you fabrics from all the projects I was going to make at retreat. Only one of those projects happened, the first one, the salmon/peach fabrics, which turned into Orange Sherbet.This post is about the projects that didn't happen at retreat. The first one was a cow crib quilt. I did prep all the fabrics pieces for this one. While prepping I decided this pattern needed close attention, especially since I was changing the cow colors. Close attention is not a good candidate for piecing at a retreat, at least not for me.
Those pieces are on a tray, ready to be pieced sometime this winter.
The second scratched project was Blackbirds by Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts. I didn't even cut this one out. These blocks are not foundation paper pieced. There are a lot of pieces to keep straight, again needing close attention.
The last project, using my beloved blues, was Double Delight, a former mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter. This one did get completely prepped and taken along to the retreat but not worked on. It will happen sometime this winter.
The individual 9 patches are all pieced and ready to be sewn into the double 9 patch block.
The other block is a rolling stone block. I sewed one of the blocks to make sure I liked the color combination I'm using. I love it! There will be other blue fabrics used also. This will be a good scrap buster.
I greatly over estimated how much I'd accomplish but I'm glad to have several projects ready to sew.
