Packing Up

I am heading off tomorrow for a nice weekend at quilt camp.  Looking forward to 2+ days of sewing.  I'm planning to work on the Scrap Basket blocks from Lisa Bonjean.  I've packed a few other small things to work on if I get those done.

We had a record snowfall yesterday for that date .. 8" I think.  Here is the view out my front window.  Now it is way cold.

I added a scrappy border to the applique block I finished last weekend.  I think this is about the perfect size (18" sq.), so I will quilt it soon and call it done.

Have a fun and warm weekend.


  1. Wow! Love the scrappy border you added to the applique block! It really completes it! Have a great retreat... stay warm!!!

  2. Your yard looks about like mine does. : )
    Beautiful block. Love the scrappy border.
    I'm just gathering fabrics (shirts) to start those scrap basket blocks. Can't wait to see what you get made.

  3. I love your block. The border is great. We have the cold here and snow flurries, but not much is sticking. Have a good time at quilt camp!

  4. Most of this week's storm missed us but the low temps are frosty! Have a great time! The applique looks terrific ..... and such warm colors!!! Hugs, Doreen
