A glimpse into my quilting journey - projects, tips, techniques, and more.

Retreat weekend with no internet :( Finally got connected so I thought I'd share some photos of what I've been up to.
First, I finished my Reflections of the North top. Only 3 years or so in the making :) I finished the center at my last retreat, then looked at the border instructions (218 half-square triangles) and put it away. So, it was project number one at this weekend's retreat. I finished the borders, and the quilt is now ready to go searching for backing.
Then, I pulled out my paper piecing project. Downtown has been in progress for some time, and it consists of paper pieced houses (24) and stars (13). However, I was never too fond of the layout, even when I first started the project. So I decided that it will be two quilts - one with 12 stars (yay, one less star to make :) ) and one with 24 houses.
Both tops are almost done now, so I should be able to call this a successful completion by the end of the weekend.
