Sunday SUN Day

 Finally, a day of sunshine after a run of sleet and snow days!  

The last full day of the Rock Island Retreat was devoted to Driftwood.

And I successfully completed the 42 blocks needed for the throw size.

As is, it will measure 48 x 56.  I'm thinking I might want to make it a little bigger -- either more blocks or a border.  In any case, I need to put the blocks on my design wall to make sure I'm happy with the arrangement and to make sure I don't have the same fabric next to itself.  With luck, I will be able to put it together at Devo and Sew on Tuesday.

Before that, though, I need to put away the Christmas decor stacked on the dining table and cut my fabric for a class block before Tuesday.  I have beef stew going in the crock pot so no more kitchen time will take away from sewing time today.


  1. I love the variety of light fabrics that you used. Yours is prettier than the pattern photo.

  2. What a lovely piece! The colors are fantastic and love the black accent! Sounds like you were having a perfect day!

  3. Gorgeous, I may have to get that pattern. Beef stew in the crockie sounds delicious.

  4. Beautiful pastels! They make for a very striking quilt. Congrats on getting all the blocks made.

  5. I like the 'spangled' effect of those triangles. Great design!
