Retreat Finishes...

Brynwood Needleworks - Magnolia Bud Table Runner

I finished a UFO this week. I went to the Sebring retreat with four completed paper-pieced quilt blocks from a Grannie Suzannie kit called "Magnolia Bud". I left with a completed table runner.

The pattern called for the blocks to be arranged into a square with a black background, floral fabric. I chose fabrics from my studio, instead, and turned my blocks on-point to make a table runner.

It's finished just in time for Valentine's Day, but I also think it has a bit of a Christmas feel, so I can use it for two holidays. I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out.

Brynwood Needleworks - Kit Bag
This was the project that was demonstrated for attendees to make at the retreat. It's a quick project bag that will hold nearly anything. I'll put this into the 2016 Birthday/Christmas gift pile. (The lining is a periwinkle-colored, print fabric that matches the zipper.)

I also completed quite the assortment of selvage blocks to add to my collection. I've told you my plan is to eventually assemble them into a queen-size quilt, haven't I?

Jamie and I are heading home having enjoyed three days away from home. We had a great time and are looking forward to more sewing days spent together in the future.

Tomorrow, I'll share photos of the projects that my other friends worked on (or completed) in Sebring. There are some really beautiful quilt tops on their way to the long-arm, as well as some other fun pieces. Today, I'll enjoy being back home and getting back in the swing here.

Thank you Donna for inspiring me again to begin early on a birthday gift. Your runner is stunning! Enjoyed reading about your adventure & how the license plate thief didn't take away your smile for long. Hugs, Marcy
