Flimsy, Blocks and Cross Stitch
I finished a flimsy that I had worked on two retreats ago. One block was cut incorrectly, so I needed to make an extra and then finish the sashings and borders. This pattern was in a Fabric Trends magazine from last year. The colors shown in the magazine were not my cup of tea, but I think these fabrics chosen by my LQS clicked. Connie and Helen have finished their tops, also. At the last retreat Connie surprised us with a cup that looks like the fabrics in the quilt.
The watermelon blocks are now finished and need to have 78 (I think) seeds added to the red parts of the log cabins. Most of these were pieced at the last "Sleep At Home Retreat" in June.
The cross stitch piece I was working on is also done and framed. I've made this pattern several times for others, but this one I'm keeping.
I'll leave you with a few photos from those last two retreats.
