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!

Finish it up!

That is my plan for this weekend.  I'm going on a 4 day - four whole days!!!! - retreat hosted by the wonderful Krista aka Poppyprint, and my plan is to finish off a few projects that I've had in the works for awhile, including this one.
Kona Modern Quilts fabric challenge
I've thrown in a couple of quilt tops that have been kicking around here for quite a while - even years - and my goal is to get them done.  And just because I don't want to get bored (HA! as if that could happen)  I've also got a couple of new projects tucked in there, too.  Maybe by next week I'll have a few more finishes to show off?  or maybe it will be a few more WIPs added to the list.  Good fun, either way!

Have a great weekend, and don't forget to pause for a moment to remember on November 11.
Detail 2 - Red Poppies

Off to finish packing

Happy quilting!

I know you'll all have an absolutely fantastic time! Loving what I'm seeing of your Kona Modern Quilts challenge! The show and tell at our November Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild meeting is going to be epic!

Both of these are gorgeous! I love the quilting in the first one and I love poppies, so the second one is gorgeous, too. Hope you had a great weekend

I love how you've left some of the poppies white-it really draws the eye further into the piece. (Here, white poppies are worn by pacifists who still want to remember, but don't necessarily approve of war.)

Hope the weekend was a success.

I hope your week end was fun!
The quilting on that quilt made me drool right on my keyboard it is that fantastic.
Love the poppies too.
I look forward to seeing some finishes. ;)
