Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Retreat Week – Photo Heavy

This past week I attended a quilt retreat where it looked like I was speed piecing.  I’ll let you in on a secret – I pre-cut sashings and had blocks already made.  This first quilt is on my guild’s UFO list as “Pink & Black Crazy Auction Blocks”. But after the list was made I decided to make the quilt bigger so swapped out the sashing and border fabrics.  Over the past few weeks I made a few extra blocks and apparently miscounted as I ended up with an extra block.  This was the first quilt I worked on.  Just added my precut sashings and instant quilt.  I used the sashing from Bonnie Hunter’s Dancing Nine’s.

Since I wanted to make sure I got up and walked, I chain stitched 10 sashings, then did a leader/ender.  My first L/E project was assembling this Easy Breezy quilt top.  I found it when I opened a box. I really thought I had finished it.  I think I had to assemble 3 or 4 rows.

Next up were these Shimmer blocks.  I had 5 ‘new’ blocks to make and had to remake 2 of the blocks, then I started assembling.

A couple of years ago I bought a FQ bundle of Radiance by Dan Morris plus 10 blenders. This is the 3rd quilt I made from that bundle and I’m going to try and get a 4th.

This was my leader/ender project.  These were 16-patches, so only 3 seams per blocks.

Now this was a quick sew. I purchased this fabric on my way to the retreat.  It’s a 3-yard pattern – Roman Holiday from the Quilt as a Wink collection.  I did make the borders wider.

Having run out of 1-1/2″ squares, I pulled out my Garden Party blocks to use as my leader/ender project. I’m not sure how many more of these blocks I need to make. I need to kit up more blocks.

This was my final project for the week – I had one block cut out and one flying geese made.  Decided how to assemble the quilt on the fly.

 

Purchases were made, but I’ll save that for another post.
