i so wanted this done for retreat, but it just didn’t happen

But it was very impressive and awesome seeing what you had done.  It will be spectacular when you finish it, and you are so close.

Glad the stain cane out!!

I have promised myself that Monday and Tuesday I WILL complete the borders!  If I don’t go back to it, the project my end up languishing a long time!

i promise pictures when I get there!

I think once you get used to the Bernina it will be amazing!

Just keep at it. It is pretty close to finished top.

I’m  Working on it…..yesterday I get the row together and sewed in.  Then spent a bunch of time taking out corners to insert my extra triangles.  The last one gets pressed this morning and then I will cut the scallop border!

That is so exciting!  It is gorgeous and impressive. Can’t wait to see it all done.

I have had very spotty availability to post on this forum.  Is anyone else having this problem?  I've logged all the way out and back in.  I'm amazed I can post today.  Not sure what the problem is.  I get a screen to reply in but not the light grey headers.   Frustrating!

I pieced a back for the bird house quilt and will take it to Carrie tomorrow.  She wants to use it to practice some quilting.  I have another scrap quilt partially done and getting backs together for the 2 quilts Patty made. I also took a string quilt to church yesterday and we tied it.  I have the binding to do.

Thanks to all the helpers we had at the retreat.  You made our load lighter.

Ami, Bob wanted me to thank you again for the "collecter"(my name) you gave him.  It's on his bedside table for his watch, ring, keys and whatever else is in his pockets.

Bob is always at every retreat and actually does a lot for the retreat attendees over the years like entertain spouses, get stuff etc. I figured he needed a gift too.
