I have been quilting a lot this week. I finished another stacked coins charity picture. I am currently working on a quilt for a friend. I should have it finished up this week.

On the piecing front I am working on getting two quilts ready. In a couple of weeks I am going on a quilt retreat with my Wednesday quilt group. We go on retreat about two times per year and have a great time. I find I spend more time getting my projects ready than I do getting clothes or food together.

I am going to make a Shakespeare in the Park quilt which comes from the same book as the Grandmothers Diamond Ring quilt. I have pulled the fabric.....or rather all of my purples and greens. I really like the color combination but have never worked with it. The pattern calls for 12" blocks but I don't like the unbalanced look the quilt has so I am going to up the number of blocks and decrease the size of the blocks to 10". I have made one block to test my calculations. I need to make the second block, the Snails Trail because I really changed some cutting methods. So here is where I am.

I hope you all have a great week of communing with your stash. I know I will.


  1. Beautiful colors -- some of my favorite. There seems to be a theme in purple and greens today as I visit the stash reports (including mine). I am looking forward to watching your progress.

  2. Your Shakespeare fabric looks beautiful - looking forward to seeing the quilt develop...

  3. I have always been so tempted to make a Shakespeare in the Park quilt - they look so complex. I have yet to try purple and green quilt - can't wait to see how it when it is finished. Have a great retreat!

  4. I love that quilt and your first block looks great!

  5. Shakespeare has been on my 'have to make one of these!!!!' for a very long time...... I love that pattern!!! What is stopping me??? I do not know the colours I want to do it in, and I want it to be beautiful!! You are going to make a quilt that is going to inspire me! I can hardly wait to see it!! And Dee Dee, it's not that hard to do!!! That is what makes it so fun, it looks complicated, but it's not....
    Have a blast on your retreat and enjoy yourself!!!!

  6. I love the SIP quilt! and I love purple and green together! Have fun at your retreat :)
