Weekend Retreat Projects

During my stitcher’s group quilting weekend at Grand Oak Retreat, I had great intentions of doing several projects but only was able to do two.  When I was in Utah back in June, I found the Riley Blake Juxtaposey fabric and fell in love with it!

This was the display at Pine Needles in Utah!

I purchased five fat quarters at Pine Needles and ended up buying more on fabric.com.

I spent some time looking for a pattern that would really show off the prints on the fabrics.  This is the one I ended up using was called Mix It Up in the McCalls Quilting magazine.

I spent most of Friday cutting out the fabric.IMG_2934

Saturday was spent figuring out the layout and then sewing it all together!IMG_2945

This is not the final product.  By the time I got home and laid it out on my king bed, I realized I needed to add two more rows and then the borders.  IMG_2947

I can’t wait to finish this project!

I pieced this quilt at the retreat too.  It’s a Quilty Box project that I attempted to hand applique.   I wasn’t fond of the applique pattern that was provided so I created my own.
