Design Wall Monday and Retreat Re-Cap

Nine Patch with Solids


This quilt project is inspired by an old quilt that my quilting buddy, Candace, was repairing.  The simple layout of nine patches and solid said, “Make me!”.  I got out my box of 2 1/2″ squares and added some solids.  Some of the solids are a Simply Color Ombre jelly roll which adds a fun dimension to the nine patches.

Thanks to Rainbows and Calico Things quilt shop for a great retreat!  I’ve attended her retreats since 2002, so it’s always fun to see familiar faces and meet some new ones!  Here’s one of the show and tell quilts that is my next inspiration!

Deb's Strippy Quilt


I couldn’t get the whole quilt in the picture, but you can see the star pattern created in the middle.  I love it!  I’ve already got fabric for the background, so this will go on the quilts to make list!

During retreat, I started 2 secret projects, (for one of them all the blocks are done!), made 2 microwave fabric bowls, started and finished a Jelly Roll Race Quilt!  Check out my facebook page for some pictures.  And, my brain is just overflowing with ideas for future projects!


Candace is starting a new blog tomorrow about Nancy Cabot, be sure to check it out, too!

Thanks!  🙂 Linda
