Q2 Finish #1

Hello everyone! I haven't had time to blog recently but I have been busy. On April 14, I received an email from Jennifer Mathis of Ellison Lane, informing me that I was chosen to be able to purchase a ticket for her Sew South retreat next Spring. I'm so excited that I'm able to go! The next day, I found someone selling their ticket for Glamp Stitchalot in June. She also had a hotel reservation and I'm excited to say that I'm going to that retreat as well! I have never been to a sewing or quilting retreat and from the sounds of things, I'm really doing it up big right out of the gate! :)

I finally got back to sewing and have my first finish of quarter 2 to share with you. My White Stars mini quilt. The pattern is by Jaybird Quilts and is found in the book Fun-Sized Quilts. It measures about 12.5" x 16.5". I went with simple quilting in the ditch around the stars. It's hard to tell in the picture but the stars show up quite nicely on the back of the quilt which I think is cute. It's up on my sewing room wall for now but I may end up listing it for sale in my Etsy shop. I haven't decided yet.


I'm linking up today to Let's Bee Social.

  2. I really like your star quilt! Small projects go together so fast and you get that satisfying feeling of completion sooner :)
