My aunt and I had a mini-retreat this week. I went to see her on Tuesday so we could make some of the squares we are to take to Texas.
I did these last weekend. Gwen suggested making some black and white sawtooth. She said Freddy likes to use that to break things up.
This is 4 Broken Dishes put together. I love the way this looks.
This is a 4 blocks that I will use for a Wild Goose Border. These blocks are actually fairly small so I will need a bunch more.
My aunt and I made some Liberated Shoo Flys. Her fabric was beautiful.
This is my first liberated shoo fly.
We also did some spiky saw tooth border. This is great fun and so liberated.
My shoo fly blocks.
I just love the look of the Spiky Border with the Liberated Shoo Fly. I am trying to be totally "Gwen" in my choice of fabrics.
My aunt and I had a great time. She had made a delicious carrot soup and for dinner we had a southwestern chicken soup. She wanted something easy so we could spend more time sewing. I was also able to visit with my daughter. My daughter is always so much fun to be around!
My goal this weekend is to do some black and white 4 patches and put them on point to possible use for a border. We have rain today and maybe some snow tomorrow.
Is winter ever going to be over?!!!!
