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?

a little bit of this and a litle bit of that

our garden is coming to an end ...the equinox is just around the corner...i love the perfect balance of that day xo

mr milo is four months old and has recently started sporting his exisaucer  xo

we had another great camping trip at washington park by annacortes

the trails are pretty much perfect in the anacortes area ~ we hiked whistle lake

and caught a ferry over to guemes island where we hiked to the top of the guemes mountain ~ and enjoyed an almost 360 degree view xo

and then there was an unexpected visit into  IN STITCHES in anacortes  where i  got a burst of fabric
and meanwhile back in the sewing room i finished up vada's quilt with sweetness
and lucky seda took a workshop with joe cunningham and made this beautiful quilt ~ finished up with bellybop
and this morning i celebrated 51 with my good friend liz on the forbes creek stairs ~ we started her day perfect with seven sets xoxo

sistertime in alberta and jellyrollrace 3.0

we three sisters celebrated a special 60 th birthday

susan ~ circa 1958

we had a special night away at the mayfield inn

we might of had TWO cakes xo
and then there were a few special days at joy and ron's farm in sunny rural alberta
in the middle of harvest time
and of course we  SEWED

we each made a jellyrollrace3 sharing a sweet half yard bundle of art gallery ~ sarah watson ~ indian summer 2011 and added a few other fabrics cuz we were short on the 40 strips that were required to make a cuddle size approx 50 by 60 "

i LOVE this variation...i mixed it  up with solid triangles, rectangles and sisters mostly did the triangles...either way finished up perfect with this indian summer fabric
these fabrics go so well  with the geometric shapes

and there was even a bit of improv play with the leftover snippets [crazymomstyle]
and now i am back home...appreciating my sisters and  the wonderful week we just had xo
                                                           happy tuesday xo pam
