Sew Cherry = Sew Busy...

I've been sew busy in my studio because.... I finally got a some yardage of Sew Cherry!

I don't have my bolts yet but atleast I have enough of each piece to get going on a quilt or maybe 5...lol.

I've been having fun playing with each and every piece...

Taking fun pictures...

And cutting up roly-polys of Sew Cherry!

I wish I could show you what I have been making...

But that will have to wait for the big reveal at Spring Market :)

In the meanwhile....I will just show you little pieces....

of the fun I am having!...

I've saved every scrap sew far...I can't throw them away yet!

I'm still counting the days until the bolts arrive so that I can put borders, bindings and backs on my projects...it should be any day now!

I promise you'll be the first to know :)

Happy sewing girls...

Amy's Union Jack...

I wanted to show you an awesome WIP that I visited a few tables away while on my retreat!...
It's what my friend Amy worked on while there.

Isn't she cute?...and so are her blocks!

I love them. Cute. Cute. Cute.

Amy makes the most awesome things and she shows them to us on her fabulous blog "Diary of a Quilter"...which I'm sure that you know about unless you are living under a rock or something...lol

Good stuff...right? Just fabulous:)

I love her fabric choices in each and every block:)

A while back she posted about this quilt that she made for her friend and I fell in love with it then!...I would love to make my own version someday....that is in all my spare time:)

What spare time you say?...Is that a giggle I hear?...hey...it could totally happen!

(I'm just sayin)

If you happen to have any time to spare...and want to make your own Union Jack quilt...you can find a pattern here.

Happy sewing girls...I'll catch up with ya later!

Last week...

...I went on quilt retreat! There were about 100 of us set up in the main conference room ...
Everywhere I looked there was an abundance of fabric...

And quilting supplies galore!

And of course plenty of treats for sharing...

This is pretty much what every table looked like...full to the brim with fun fun fun...we all had a blast!

This is Amy from American Quilting who hosted the retreat. What a cutie! I just love her...thanks Amy!

Once again you outdid yourself and put on a fantastic retreat:)

There were 4 of us on my table....this is my friend Susann who sat across from me...

...and then my friend Judi who sat next to Susann....

...and Rae Ann who sat next to me.

We all had a great time together and did alot of sewing...visiting...eating... and laughing.

And we did plenty of goofing off at the same time...lol.

I was surrounded everywhere by all kinds of quilty goodness...here are a few random shots of what I saw...

What do you think?...Does it look like fun to you?

I heart retreats:)

Everything that I saw...I wanted to take a picture of.

Can you believe that I took 236 pictures!

Obviously I can't show them all but I have so much more more to share with you throughout this week ...including my class and trunk show with Sandy Klopp!

.... so stay tuned girls!
