Retreat Wrap-up

 I wasn't firing on all cylinders this week, so I kept my project load light at the S'mores retreat.  First I stitched the binding to Twisted Ribbons.

The handwork kept me busy while I watched the NCAA Women's Gymnastics finals today.  I also got the binding stitched on Diamond in the Rough.

The handwork will take a while.  I started that project in a class with Debbie Caffrey in 2012 (at least that's when she autographed my pattern) and I've been holding on to it to get custom quilting.  My LAQ did a spectacular job.

I put the two more borders on Delectable Mountains.

It still needs at least a narrow border to stabilize all the seams along the edges.  I also put the first narrow border on Weaver Fever (no photos) but ran out of steam.  I will try to get the second border on before the end of the month since it is the challenge project for April.

Weather permitting, I'll be playing golf with our church women's group on Monday. We call ourselves the Westminster Abbies.  Haven't played in a couple of years, so wish me luck.

Have a great week, Y'all!


  1. love that diamonds quilt - what is the size of that?

  2. I love Twisted Ribbons! The way you used the different shades of pink to make the ribbon shape is wonderful, Libby. Have fun playing golf, too! My group played a couple weeks ago, but since then we've had cold and snow, so haven't been able to play. I'm definitely looking forward to getting back out there!

  3. Gorgeous projects, Libby! Best of luck for the golf. Putt-putt is more my speed!

  4. Your Diamond in the rough is glorious! Those colors!

  5. Your LAQ really did do a fabulous job! Gorgeous quilts!
