 But then you realize that you can put this filler block here and that filler block there and take da! It's done!

That was my method.  If I needed a little bit to size up I added a small strip of black filler.  Once I got started, it went together pretty quickly.

Well partly the challenge, partlt I do not have much wall space left.

You can start rotating quilts and wall hangings every 3 months or buy a bigger house, or build a studio with lots of wall space.relaxed

Thanks for all the positive comments on the t-shirt quilt.  Some of the credit goes to Ellen and Carrie, my advisors.   The next one will be easier.

I love retreats and often find I can get a lot accomplished.  Glad you had a good one.  Cute purses for your granddaughters.

Retreats are so much fun!  And I love getting things accomplished!

well, I do rotate them periodically.  And you'd seen my studio - it's pretty full now.  DH has suggested I start hanging them on the cathedral ceiling.

DD asked if I could make her another therapy vest, to use with her Occupational Therapy kids.  She had bought a couple with buttons & snaps but she wanted one with smaller buttons for the kids to practice with.  After my sister and I tut tut'ed over how poorly the binding was attached on the ones she purchased, I got started.  Wow, It has been a long time since I made any button holes, took me a while to remember how my machine does them. 

It is interesting, she had tried purchasing some shirts for the kids to practice buttoning, but they were very reluctant to put on someone else's shirt.  But they are ok with the vest.  Go figure.  Keep in mind these are home health kids with developmental challenges.  Anyway, it was fun to work on something that will help her at her job.
