Sister's retreat and Pink Breeze Quilt

My sister and I had a nice "sister's quilt retreat" - just the two of us.   First time we have ever taken a trip together.   We took quilty stuff and everything else we needed to spend 3 days & 4 nights in a cabin at Mt. Nebo State Park.  We enjoyed having a fire in the wood heater each evening and there was still a lot of fall color.   I was able to cut out all the pieces for my "Pink Breeze" and my sister worked on various projects including a Christmas stocking for her newest grandson.   Since I have been back home, I have been working on my Pink Breeze and finished the top Wednesday afternoon.   It appears that my seam allowances were a bit small (although everything seemed to match up as it was supposed to do) because the top was 2" longer and wider than it was supposed to be - if I figured accurately.   Then using the leftover triangles from trimming the pink corners on each block, I was able to add a sawtooth border to the outside.   I only had to make 10 extra HST's.  It now measures 90" X 102".   My hubby has already claimed it and I still have to mark the top and quilt it.  I should have closed the blinds before taking the pics.  


  1. I love it Louise. I still have to pick colors. Now if I could just find my sewing room. We have done a lot of house cleaning and carpet cleaning so I can only see the front of my desk/cutting table. Lol. But my hubby got my blazer fixed, we got new to us living room furniture and a tornado hit the inside of my Hope to get it together today. Since tomorrow is family day at my moms. The back to work Monday (I am not looking forward to it..).

    1. You will so enjoy it all when everything is back in place. Have a good time with mom & family. See you Tuesday night.
