I'm going on a quilt retreat on Wednesday the 19th until Sunday. For a number of years I was a professional quilter. I'm not now but I still love sewing. I don't do a lot of quilting anymore. I just made one for my granddaughter which I will bind at the retreat. It's the quilt Katie made for Joel's birthday in Giving Love. I'm writing the pattern which I'll post another day.
I'm going to be sewing clothing for myself, my granddaughter and American Girl dolls. I didn't get to sew for girls since I had two boys. I'm having fun doing it now.
Here's the top before it was quilted. She likes owls and yellow and pink. Pretty bright.
Over the past couple of weeks I've been gathering patterns and material to take. I'm going to cut out some things before I leave. Most likely as soon as I finish this post. I'm getting excited. I know you most likely don't really care what I sew but I may post pictures next week. Big Grin. I CAN"T WAIT UNTIL WEDNESDAY!!!
