Farmer’s Wife–3/4 of blocks done!

Our group is doing 8 blocks per month and in three months, we will be done!   Can’t wait to see the finished quilts.   The blocks are the same but the quilts will all be different.

Some of the blocks have been a challenge, but something to be learned from each.

 

I do enjoy handwork and have just finished a EPP runner for a couple of bureaus in the bedroom.  I like the way the neutrals play well together.   The backing for this is an off white wool.  I hand quilted the runner to the wool, appliqued the edges and then cut the wool close to the edges of the hexagons.

Going on a 3 day quilt retreat in mid October with other members of my PTQG quilt chapter.   We are going to the Franciscan House in Kennebunkport, Maine for the second time.   Last May we had a weekend retreat and I cannot say enough good about this facility.  Each of us had an 8 foot table to ourselves, great lighting, comfortable  rooms, and just had to go through a door to the dining area where all three meals were served.   Rooms are simple but have everything needed for the weekend.   It was a short walk to the downtown in one direction and to the beach in the other.   Hopefully I’ll have pictures of  the work accomplished!
