Wedding Quilt and Prepping For Retreat

Finished, wrapped and delivered to the happy couple on Saturday:

Hopefully, they will like it.

With that project out of the way, I'm feeling "antsy" - not sure what to start on next.

I have started to organize my thoughts on what to take to the St. Jude's retreat next month. Should I decide to work on a Nickel quilt or two, I have plenty of 5" squares to choose from. Purchased remnants over the last month and I'd like to get them sliced into nickel squares and 2 and 1/2" strips. At the Lebanon quilt show earlier this month, I picked up a couple of fun things to work. So, loads to select from and the three day retreat may not be enough to get them all completed!

Andrea's been neglected on the quilt front. About a year ago, she selected a pattern she'd like and even stipulated what colours she wanted. Definitely not into scrappy that gal! Black and white courthouse squares. I make take a stab at that this week.

I keep feeling a need to document DH's health issues and our family life, but this is certainly not a forum for that. Look for a new blog to start soon if you're interested in the wheelings and dealings of Michael, Cathy, Andrea and Tattoo Boy.

Have a great week!

I'm thinking a lot about retreat too, I'm soo excited! Are you going to Shop Hop with us on Thursday?

The wedding quilt turned out great! I'm sure the couple will love it.
