Design Wall Monday

I went to a day retreat at my local quilt store on Sunday. It went from 10 AM to 6 PM but I had to stop around 4:30 because I just ran out of steam.

When I sew outside of my house I like to do cutting of strips because I typically have more room and I like to work on things that require a little more precision using my Singer 301.

While I was at the retreat I cut the rest of the pieces that I need for my 3-D bow tie quilt. I don't mind sewing that one at home on my Janome. I also worked on my Crossroads quilt. I prefer to work on this one on my 301 because it has very small pieces and I can be very accurate on that machine.

Crossroads is a 6 month BOM. I managed to finish the fourth month/round today. The fifth month/round has a bunch of churndash blocks. It's going to take a good bit of time to get this round complete.

We had really good food at the retreat and also a really fun time. Would anyone like to buy a vowel?

I'm linking up with Judy at Patchworktimes.



p.s. My first eye surgery was a success. I'm preparing for the next one on the 18th. Also starting my new job tomorrow.

I've only been on a couple of retreats and, while I do get a lot done, they are exhausting. I don't know why because I can sew for the same amount of time at home and be ok. Maybe it's the other stimulation. Your quilt is coming along nicely. I love different borders, but especially the thin yellow one. It really brings in a lot of light.
