Prepping for Retreat


Gathering together my projects to work on at upcoming Feb retreat.  My main project will be a Graduation quilt for my great niece who will be graduating this June.

I going with the Atkinson Lucky Stars pattern done in Blue/Green batiks…..her favourite colours.    Inside the center squares of the stars will be pictures of Kennedy and her family. 


Love working with Atkinson Patterns……this is the second one I have done…..the instructions are very detailed with lots of tips and tricks and things to watch out for!!  Also the pressing instructions are very precise….takes alot of the guesswork out of it for me and I can just relax and sew!!  Going to try to get a couple of the star blocks done up before the retreat to make sure this is going to work the way I envision it!!

Here is a picture of my view out the window this morning!!  Love it!!
