Love the mystery quilt top in the turquoise, lime green and white. Heather Spence is doing another mystery quilt starting in January if anyone is interested in joining her. You can find her on Etsy. I am going pass on that one. Here is the quilt.

Quilt with Ombre fabric

When Quilts at the Marshall House got in a selection of ombre fabrics complete with a downloadable pattern I thought it would make the perfect high school graduation quilt for my nephew. Blue is his color and this quilt has about every shade. The picture is showing the lighter blues almost white in the pic but there is no white at all.

I did the first border in fabric with baseballs and baseball mitts...only one of the sports my nephew plays. The backing is a flannel with browns and creams that go very nicely with the "out of place" inner border. Now just to get it quilted and bound after it spends some time for show at the quilt shop.

Quilt Retreat- Hankerd Inn, Pleasant Lake, Michigan

Along with quilting sisters, Joyce, Judy, Carol, Rita, Carolyn, Fran, and Carolyn I spent 4 wonderful, relaxing days at the Hankerd Inn sewing and sewing. Hankerd Inn is a bed and breakfast inn owner by a quilter who has created accommodations specifically for quilters and scrapbookers. She is just north of Jackson, Michigan in Pleasant Lake situated on a golf course. You can find her online.

I was able to get a very good start on making smaller quilts...just under lapsize...for 6 of my great nieces and nephews and twin size quilts for 2 great nieces for Christmas gifts. The twin size quilts are for a in purple and the other one in pink. Here is a pic of one of the little quilts for Allysa.

More pics of the other ones coming soon. Here are some of my friends at the retreat. Our next one is in February.
