Phantom Postings


I'm doing it again. Writing posts in my head that never reach the keyboard. I imagine the pictures that I'll share and the stories I can relate. Then it almost feels like I did write. Well, this one is for real.

Had a wonderful time in Gladwin last week-end at The Springs. There were about 80 gals
who gathered for fun and sewing. I finished enough blocks for the throw size Starstruck that I started in the class by Bonnie Hunter in September. I can't decide if I want to make it bigger or add a border and call it done. Any ideas for a border?

Tonight is the Fantastic Friday Halloween party at The Quilted Cottage. We are encouraged to dress up for the evening. (in costumes) I'd better get mine on before I'm late.

Here are a few if the projects from the gals at the retreat.










When I returned home on Sunday, Annie immediately jumped on my suitcase and gave me a look.

Jeanne I love the Starstruck quilt. I have that pattern somewhere. I'll bet if you bring it along to Shipshewana you could find a great border for it. It's a great quilt!!!!

Nice quilt! I love the colors. How about cornerstones of just the gold "bowtie" block and then a couple plainish borders using some of the blues and maybe a tiny gold border around your star part? Don't know, but it sure is nice.
