Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

where to begin?

Last post, I was just heading off to one of my guilds' quilt show.   It was a great show - around 200 quilts and so much wonderful talent and inspiration!  I was thrilled to find this
pinned to this quilt  Citrus Sisters

This one

and then this!

Wow!  So cool!  (Sorry folks, I don't take a camera with me to quilt shows, so no in situ pictures)

I made some great progress last weekend on my Tangled Textiles piece - just a peek at my colour selection,

Then this week, I received an email telling me that my CQA - "It's time for colour"  - quilt has sold!
I'm so pleased!

Now, to top it all off I'm headed off this weekend for a 4 day quilting retreat with some fab friends! I'm sure there will be a few IG posts floating around at #LoonLakeQuilters.  Maybe, just maybe, between wine and chatting, I just might get this top pieced together - it has been a wip since April, and I'd like to get it finished and donated.

There are a few other projects packed and ready to go, (okay, so maybe 9 or 10) as you know you never want to run out of things to do!





Hope you have plans for a fabulous weekend, but whatever your plans, make sure you take a minute at 11:00 am on November 11 to remember those that have fought for us all.
Happy quilting! Janet
