macaroni love story ~ i built this quilt one block idea at a time

my love for improv and heather ross's fabric were the inspiration for this special quilt and the marcus brothers oasis canvas organic cotton paired perfect xo

log cabin quilt retreat 2015

another great sewing getaway with my hen party quilt group at logcabinquiltretreats

first i finished up #mysmallworldqal ~  i have been following verykerryberry's awesome qal with jen kingwell's was originally published in a special [hard to find] spring edition of quiltmania but i heard there will soon be a pattern available  xo

i still have a few hand stitches and some fine tuning but i am mostly in love and had so much fun with this sweet quilt
next i cut into this special pile of annamaria's pretty potent ~ it was not easy
i decided on a large hexagon pattern... i am using a creative grid ruler and have learned to do a Y seam...easier than i thought and i am very happy with my fabric/pattern choice xo

and we had a little shopping trip to the ben franklin in monroe where i found a few treasures xo

i also worked on an oldie...i started these foundation pieced blocks in 2012 on a figtreefactory sistersister sewing week

i finsished 6 more 16" blocks  which makes it 64" square ~ thinking i will make one more row cuz i don't want a square cuddle quilt {love how there is lots of room for all of us and i especially love the large design walls}

 started this little cutie in my last few hours of retreat...i have had this half moon charm pack and urban garden by paisley bunny ready to start for a long will be perfect hanging in my sewing room one day...

so approximately 27 hours of  ME sewing equals one tired and very happy girl with a finish, a bit of progress and a few new starts xo

we have been getting away together on quilt retreats for almost 20 lucky are we?
                                                             happy wednesday xo pam
