Saturday Blues


We all have a tough time today knowing it's the last day of the retreat. Several of us had a lovely dinner at the Blue Gate before Show and Tell last night with Rebecca Haarer, whose shop you've seen pictured here several times, and Jeanette Yoder from Yoder's Department Store. We had so much fun we've decided it should be an "every retreat" event.

I'm going out this morning to make a final decision on the background fabric for the Shipshewana Amish Quilt. Now don't go running out to the store just yet. I haven't decided if I'm going to use all of the fabrics listed below but you can print the pattern for the first section today.

I have chosen mostly Kona solids and purchased 1/4 yard pieces of:

  • Teal Blue
  • Cadet
  • Burgundy
  • Windsor
  • Sage
  • Spruce
  • Bayou
  • Crimson
  • Rich Red
  • Brown
  • Indigo
  • Coal
  • Charcoal
  • Ash
  • Espresso
  • Brown
  • Dark Teal
  • Hunter Green
  • Mahogany
  • Indigo

Feedsacks from our exchange

I have done quite a bit of sewing while I've been here. I made thirty six 3" blocks for a block exchange, a few midgets and a new blanket for Clutch. Pictures to come.........
