This past weekend my friends and I attended a quilt retreat. We had a blast. Even got a bit of piecing done. The top picture is Nickle and Dime from Kansas Troubles. My friend S had gotten as far as getting the quarter blocks done, so I didn’t have much left to do.
The next day after a bit of shopping – bag pattern, FQs, yardage, charms, mini charms, rulers and book (not pictured) I made the zipper bag pictured below.
The fabric is from a couple of different Kansas Troubles lines and the pattern is Zippy Strippy by Atkinson Designs. The shop had a “story board” showing how the zipper was put in and I decided I had to have the pattern.
Finally I worked on my Nifty Thrifty blocks. I got all of them made and started on the sashing. Now that I see them up on the design wall, may need to make a few more blocks.
Hop over to Patchwork Times to see what others have on their design walls.
