This is most of my "shop the hop" loot from Friday morning. I fell in love with the table runner kit from Pine Street Quilts, and put it together right away. I bought a table runner/hot pad charm pattern, a tote pattern, and fabric to make a checkbook cover to match my wonder wallet. I also got some fabric, not pictured, for a wall hanging. I think I showed great restraint...could've been the day I spent digging through all the waiting projects in my "packed" sewing room to find to take to the retreat....
This is my scrappy quilt-paper pieced. I completed three more blocks and sewed them all together. I'm thinking with a few borders and backing it is almost done. It's destination is our NICU.
I used this free pattern for my foundation blocks. It would be the perfect size to make hot pads out of scraps with too.
We had a White Elephant event that was very fun. I ended up with a bag of wonderful vintage fabrics! I'm really looking forward to another quilt retreat someday.
