Off The Worktable and Onto The Rack!

Since I posted a rather long post yesterday, I thought I'd hold my Workspace Wednesday post for today. I mentioned in this post that I would be traveling to MA this Sunday to begin a journey of new friendships and stitching. Our project Folk Art Gathering has large pieced backgrounds to which we will add our applique at our monthly get-togethers.
Here is month #1's finished background! I just love it. I especially loved trolling through my rather extensive stash to pull fabrics. I have made it my goal to use what is on-hand and not buy anything (OK, I'm only human, not buy much )for this project.

I am especially in love with these little half Log Cabin blocks. Not exactly sure why- I just think they were fun to piece and are quite cute!

Later today, I will dive into my collection of wool. I intend to mix wool and cotton applique in this project. I need to be prepared for the weekend. Can you tell I'm excited?

Happy Stitching

Karen, how cute is this. The first thing my eyes were drawn to were the little half log cabins. I can hardly wait to see what you do with the wool. Have fun at the retreat.

I love the colors you chose for your quilt. I am working on this quilt also, I can't wait to see what the next pattern will be like. I was at Country Loft a couple weeks ago and they had it displayed in the store and the tag said a "4 part series" and it made me sad, I hope it's more!

Delightful! I also am drawn to cabin blocks. They all take on a look of there own! Thanks for sharing.

Have fun at the retreat. They are always so much fun and creates a refreshing new flow of energy when sharing with each other! Carolyn
