A Finish

Done! Finished! Completed! Here is my Gifts quilt made from a Flurry charm pack. LuAnn at Loose Threads wrote the instructions for this smaller version of the quilt. I'm really happy with the results of this one. The background is white, but shows creamy in the photo.

Our group project at last week's retreat was a little thread catcher. I used the same fabric that I used for the tool caddy. The thread catcher squishes down and can be stored in the back pocket of the caddy.

While catching up on watching "The Voice", I ironed my 30 pillowcases. They have been washed, ironed and bagged. On Wednesday, I'll turn them over to the gal who is collecting them.

Slow Stitching Sunday project

A little late posting to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday, but this is what I'm working on now. Just a few more stitches, and it will be done!

Come back and see the finished quilt, hopefully this evening.

Tigers update: Tigers lead the series 2-0 heading back to Detroit. Verlander will be on the mound! Go Tigers!

Quilt Square

Finished the little square for this month's club using Lori Smith's Quilt Squares #1 pattern. This is the 5th square I have made from this pattern, with one more to go next month. Not sure how I will quilt it or maybe I'll frame it.

Wednesday, we went to Grand Rapids to see ArtPrize 2012. There are so many amazing entries. We walked almost four hours and were able to see, among others, 8 of the Top Ten.

Today, Connie, Helen and I spent a few hours at our LQS tracing Possibilities
calendar month patterns. I'm only a year behind on these, but with the Heat "N Bond ready for fabric, it could move along quickly.

Tomorrow it's off to Comerica Park to watch Justin Verlander and the rest of the Tigers in game one of the play-offs against Oakland.

Have a great week-end!
