    Re: WIP Jan 3- Jan 9

    When I go on a retreat I usually just take things I am ready to piece. To me it is difficult to lay out big things to measure for borders or cut complicated things. There are design boards so arranging blocks into rows and putting rows together generally works out as does cutting small projects. Paper piecing is a good choice, too.
    A lot depends on how much space there is for me [you] to spread out.
    Something else to consider is how much you need to concentrate with the fun chatter swirling around.

    Claire - you were very productive. Your quilts are beautiful.

    I need your tips - did you pre-cut your fabrics, pre-assemble some. I'm going to a 5 day retreat and I want to maximize sewing time.

    Here is what I got done at my retreat, borders yet to go. The colors are a bit subdued in the pictures, they are brighter in person.IMG_1149.JPGIMG_1151.JPG

    Denise - that is amazing.

    My sewing area was pretty cleaned up until yesterday. DH & I went to LQS where I get a free meter of fabric every month. They also had a great sale. I used up a gift certificate and much more. We both came home with more fabric and FQs. So I will fold and put away tomorrow.

    Yesterday I spend 4 hours taking down some of xmas decor and put away. Today I will take down 7' tree now that it's ornaments are off. DH will take down 4' tree we have in our bedroom. We will keep the train display & village on the dining table for another week.

    Then hopefully I can return to some sewing every day.

    For sure! I always look forward to your WIP. You do the most complicated designs and always put your own spin on it.

    Wow! That texture is amazing. I am working on a hanging garden's quilt for my brother still. It helps if you initially cut the pieces the right size. Had to do some ripping because pieces wouldn't fit right.

    My sewing table is empty I still have a few days of Christmas holiday but I love your wolf has such an adorable expression, is not very scary, and the quilting gives you a lot of strength. Great work I hope to see it finished

    I got the quilt sandwich made for my spring version of Wolf Abstractions by Violet Craft.

    Hallelujah I finally got the walking foot working on my Brother 1500. Now I can do match stick quilting of wiggly lines on a 1/4" scale. It looks like this

    It takes a lot of time, but I love how it looks.

    In the past month I have sewed through approx 4000 yards of thread. Whew.

    Whats on your sewing table?
