More Quilt Retreat......

I also finished my 12 blocks the Baltimore Bunnies quilt that I am making. They were originally designed for hand applique but I couldn't face that! - LOL.... so I will machine applique them. They have been fused and now have to be satin stitched. THEN.... the borders have to be appliqued..... it is a beautiful pattern... and I hope to have a grand daughter that I can give it to one day.

This pattern is from Bunny Hill Designs, and I purchased it as a Block of the Month. You may remember that I also taught the All Things Christmas pattern as a Block of the Month - so this will be the second of her patterns that I have completed. I LOVE her designs ..... and if time permitted I would do them all!

This is my good friend Shirley - at our retreat. She is doing some hand work - she does the most amazing crazy patch quilting. You can see some of her work here.... She made the wonderful crazy patch wall hanging that was raffled off for Boston Terrier Rescue - she's always a great supporter and a really good friend. Shirley also teaches and has an online fibre arts group - Learning Fiber Arts. This is a great group that offers FREE classes.

Thought for the Day
Don't prepare the path for the child, prepare the child for the path.
