Looking forward...

This past week I was busy finishing up some projects that are not ready to be shared just yet. It feels good to have these done since they've been in process for most of the summer!

My little sewing room Mickeys holding a teensy quilt block. Yes. That is a 1/4 border.
Now I'm in the mood to look forward. I have my Chicago Modern Quilt Guild fall retreat coming up in about two weeks. I've already started my lists of "Stuff to complete before the retreat" / "Stuff to work on at the retreat" / "Stuff I need to buy to have on hand at the retreat." Those are the most exciting sorts of lists! I'm sure I'll post a bit more about what I'm planning on accomplishing at the retreat as we get closer. Also, we should have internet while we're there! We had no internet access the whole weekend last spring because the Sisters were updating their wireless network! Oh yes, did I fail to mention - we retreat at a lovely convent where the older sisters like to stop in and visit - they like to see the fun things we're making! 

(In case you wondered, I LOVE nuns. I do. Especially these ones. My very favorite sister/sister lives there!)

Some pretty fall colors? I love Kona Curry & Grass Green!
In other news, CMQG is sponsoring QuiltCon and I just got my discount code for registration!!! Eeek! Talk about exciting! I can't wait!!

Is there anything you guys are looking forward to? 


  1. That's a great block! I'm so bummed to miss the retreat this fall :( super bummed. But I'm looking forward to catching up at quiltcon!!!!!

  2. Such a cute block and the Mickeys are so cool! Just looking forward to my Etsy shop preparations =D

  3. I can't wait to see what this turns out to be. I love the tiny 1/4 inch border!

    I'm sure there are things I'm looking forward to, but I can't think of any right now :) It's too early to say that I'm looking forward to summer :-/
