Quilt buds and the ugly quilt saga
Yesterday, my quilty friends and I had a stay-retreat, if that is a word/phrase. We had breakfast together and then quilted from 9am to 9pm. We ate so much wonderful food, were blessed by such generousity and enjoyed each others company. It was a wonderful day/evening. I look forward to our next one. Normally we meet each Friday to quilt together and have lunch which we take turns providing. We are together for four to five hours each Friday. If you do not have a quilt group, I high recommend putting one together.
I worked on the pattern "Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go." I completed ten of the twelve blocks. I already have completed the stitchery scenes. I also made quite a few flying geese blocks for this as well. I will post the completed quilt soon.
The saga of the Ugly Quilt has come to a close. If you recall, I was making a quilt for my granddaughter and I woke up in the middle of the night and thought, that thing is just plain ugly. It is still not my favorite but I have finished it with some changes to make it acceptable. Here are the before and after pictures.
