Each person attending the retreat has their own sewing station where we can sew together in one big room. For the remaining 3 days I focused on piecing blocks for While The Cat's Away BOM. Piecing really isn't my strong suit and it took me 2 days to make the 8 star blocks. The final day was spent on the Churn Dash blocks that were finished when I arrived home.
You've heard about me cleaning out the closet (finally) and one more quilt was sent off recently to be quilted. Imperial Blooms was completed about 4 years ago and I'm so happy that it is finally quilted. "My" machine quilter, Cindy Paulsen, is amazing and has really perfected her craft.
Cindy knows that I love a lot of quilting in the background, quilting on top of the applique, and threads matched to each color. Since picking up this quilt a few days ago, I keep going back to look at all the details. Wow!!
