One Week, One Thing - May 8

Yeah, yeah, it's Tuesday - not Monday.  But I'm here this week reporting on my One Thing from last week.

Actually, I got a lot more done than that one thing. I went on a quilting retreat!!  First time in many years, and it was fun to get away from the "real world" for a couple of days and sew with some great friends.

My goal last week was to complete putting the Vintage Rouge BOM top together.  I was determined to do that before I left so that I could spend the weekend sewing on "want to do" instead of "need to do".
Got that accomplished by Thursday morning.

Over the weekend, I made my Block Swap blocks which are due this Friday.
I still have to bag and tag them, but that won't take long.

I put together my Drunkard's Path circle quilt from last month's Marti Michell club.  The fabrics are Covent Garden by Benartex with Bella Solid "American Blue" as the background.

I then set together my "Granny Square" blocks for a baby quilt due in August.  Fabrics are Backyard Baby by Michael Miller.

I also made a quilt top for my daughter's 17th birthday which is today, but it's a surprise so I can't show it here.  I hope she likes it!

Needless to say, the pile of tops needing quilting grew by 4 last week.  I guess I need to get busy!  The Vintage Rouge quilt is top priority; I intend to quilt and bind it this week.

How about you?  What did you get done?
