Now on to business.... the winner is..... Wilson drum roll please...............................................drum roll............

Congratulations! Woot! Woo!
Please email  me your address so that I can send you your prize!

I love give-aways!  Another fun giveaway will be posted this weekend, you will all have another chance to win.  Details will be posted on the Doodle Blog on Friday!  Let me now share with you a few pictures from quilt retreat.  It was a fun weekend.  I packed just right even though I didn't bring a ton of stuff.  What I did bring kept me very busy!
Mom was the first to complete a project, isn't it wonderful!  She loves doing 5 yard quilts, this one turned out very nicely.  She smiling for the camera behind the quilt!

I worked on my Takes Two blocks...

I worked on them most of the weekend....

To add some interest I switched up and added different reds to some of the blocks....

This block just about sent me to the nut house.... but I'm proud to say that I got it done and I'm very pleased with the points.... it's not perfect but by far the hardest block I have ever completed without paper piecing it.  Wouldn't this make a lovely quilt if I repeated the block....

Kim made a Dresden Plate table runner.  Isn't it cute! I stayed up late Saturday night and helped her out with it.  She's smiling behind the table runner, really!
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you,


  1. Glad that you had a great time at the retreat, love your blocks. I am really glad that my just takes two blocks are caught up also, I don't think I would ever make the star again.

  2. Congrats to the winner!
    Your blocks are that star!!! TFS
