Hello everybody! I got back from my quilt retreat yesterday. I had a blast! I actually feel like I got something accomplished too. On Friday we went to a great small quilt shop in Minneola, TX. She had great prices on her fabric and I was able to get my border fabric for my Drunkard's path quilt. I was originally going to use it for my binding, but after a group discussion, I went a totally different way and this is what we came up with. I really like it. I showed it to my husband and he told me I needed to keep this one. LOL. It's hard to tell in the picture but it has tiny red and yellow fruit on it. I am in love with it! Read about how I got these blocks here: http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2013/07/drunkards-path-blocks.html I did not make all of those curved seams, my friend Pat did. I just finished it after she gave me her her blocks.
Here is my other finish. I'm not sure if you can see the border fabric very well, but it looks like the side of a red barn! Margaret was nice enough to show me how to figure out how to make sure I had enough material for my borders. I'll have to do it a couple of more times before I will feel confident enough to share it.http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/search/label/Barn%20Quilt

I have to fold these tops up and will not be able to quilt them until after I move, but at least they are finished tops! I also quilted my great granny square quilt all weekend, I'll need to finish it this week.
I have a lot more pictures to share with you from this weekend, I'll do that in another post!
