NTB4 Quilt Retreat

Last weekend I was off to my Quilt Retreat.  I packed up all of the quilting "stuff" on Wednesday night, can't recall when I packed up the projects, and packed up my clothes on Thursday night.  Friday morning I was off to my regularly schedule Knit Group and got home in time to load the car for the trip.

My driver and I were the first to arrive.  We set up the sewing space and unloaded our gear.  We each chose our spot and set up our machines.  The minute everyone else arrived, we were off and stitching!

I got a LOT done on my 100-Patch quilt.  Too bad things were a little wonky!  It turns out that I may have to rip out all of the stitches that attached the sashing to the pieced blocks.  :o(

When I noticed there was a problem, I trimmed everything down.  Under normal circumstances, that might have worked.  This time?  Not so much!

The next step in the process is to add a pieced border onto the sashed blocks.  Well...the border pieces no longer match up to the sashed blocks.  :o(

Not a problem!  If you sew, so shall you rip.

Ripping off the sashing and cutting wider sashing pieces will be my next step in the process.  I'm not happy about it, but it will look a LOT better than the mess that I now have.

Adventures in quilting...you've gotta love it!!!

Until next time...
Happy Quilting!

  1. No bed bugs? I heard from peeps at Art Bee that there were bed bugs making things interesting as they unpacked. Leaving luggage in the car for a couple days and oven cooking fabric.
