Well first retreat of the year is done, and it was a great time. I love retreats. So the first order of quilting was to do a top that was suppose to be done last fall. but let me show outhis cute little table runner first. Have you seen this fabric. Already into stripes. I threw the selvedge away but I believe it's called STRIP-R, so all I had to do was make the vertical cuts and stitch it back up into this table runner. what an easy way to make a bragello. I could see a bed quilt done like this and is it cheating?Who cares is was a breeze.

1st retreat of the year down
So this is the challenge piece It should have been done last November, but I'm always late. I wish I could get the beautiful purple to show as purple not black. At a retreat Igo to we swapped these black and white blocks. There was 20 of us and each person chose a block and made 20 of them then we swapped them and each of us ended up with 20 different blocks to make a sampler.I picked out this pretty limey green and this luscious purple to go with the black n white blocks. Im really pleased with how this turned out.
