Only 1.5 weeks to retreat day! So I've started thinking about what projects to take with me for the 3 days. So far, I have 2 plans. A twisted log cabin. I saw a tutorial for making this without paper piecing, and I couldn't resist trying it out. Now that I've done it, I'll do it a bit differently but I think this will work nicely. The blocks are small - 4.25" finished. But that's just about right for a quiltie. I have to decide if I want to do this in the colour palette for this month, or in something different.
New Beginnings. I haven't done a Bear's Paw before, so it satisfies my "something new" need. I was first thinking about shrinking it down, to make a quiltie, but 1" half-square triangles seemed like too much work. So I think I'll just pull a bunch of colour pairs and plan to make something bigger this time. I'll some with me and see if I can get a few blocks made at the retreat.
I don't know if that will be enough, but since it's really only 2 days (and there are 3 classes) it might keep me busy for the weekend. Knowing me, however, I'll come up with a bunch more projects to take along before next Friday.
