I have been chipping away at the pile of love tops waiting on me. One by one I am slowly getting them done. My friend S came and picked up ten to bind. Yay!!!

I finished this top at retreat last September 2021. It’s massive!
It was a leader ender project from Bonnie Hunter that really clicked. I have a sizable bag of blocks left over which may become a lap quilt. I’ll post better pictures later. 🐸

From me. I truly did not mean to go this long without a post.
The quilt drive for the Haywood flood victims was a great success with over 124 quilts completed. I did get a little burned out but have been back in the studio finishing chemo quilts.
This was a top donated from Nancy F. It was supposed to have appliquéd flowers but I just did fancy quilting. I really played with pro-stitcher and had fun!

The quilting continues on most days. I usually quilt up two or three tops. They are smallish so it doesn’t take forever to get them done. They are quilted with a medium meander stitch.
I turned in a bunch Tuesday and received the last 20 tops. Exhale a big sigh of relief!
The pictures do not show another eight completed that I had in my car.

And how has it been a month since I posted. No clue.
I have been sewing like crazy. A few of us are making quilts 40 X 60 inches for the flood victims of Haywood County NC. They were flooded out from hurricane Fred. Our plan to provide enough to give out at Christmas time. A lot of fabric has been used of which I am so glad. I need to see more progress so I will keep going.
I recently went on a quilt retreat in Jonesborough TN which was fabulous. It was a Sunday through Thursday morning long and boy did we eat. So much food, all good. And the sewing …. I did get my leaders and Enders top together. I will insert a better picture next time. This is in progress.
The black and white corner stone patches were a happy accident as I forgot my jar of of 1.5 inch squares. Looking through the fabric I had brought I chose this one and it was perfect.
Some pictures of projects happening around the room:
It was a fun retreat and I signed up for next year. 🐸.
