Retreat Day 3

A Day's Labor

Today was devoted to making a baby quilt for the checker at Kroger -- she hinted, and I thought, "why not?"

I kept it to a simple rail fence.

Regina's quilt
Regina requested pink for a girl. Though in this fluorescent light it looks more orange. Just three prints -- all from ancient stash -- and Kona Snow.

The back ...

Had planned to quilt it here, but forgot to bring the batting ... sigh.

After dinner I will try to work with the leftover pieces before packing up. 


  1. Isn't it funny how orange it looks? Love those elephants on the back!

  2. It's a very cute quilt. I love that backing fabric!

  3. What a sweet gesture on your part! I'm sure she and baby will cherish your thoughtfulness.

  4. That's so nice of you. How did the checker know you quilt? It's a great quilt and I bet it's cherished for years.

    1. When I don't accompany my husband, the checker takes notice. Once he told her I was at a quilt retreat and now she always asks how my quilting is going.
