Our FLL qualifying tournament was over the weekend. Both of our teams did well enough to qualify for the state tournament in January. We're taking a few much-needed weeks off, and then it's back to weekly practices.
I went to a quilt guild retreat over the weekend too. It was my first one. While I enjoy being with my friends, I think I'm more of an at-home sewing person. I did finally finish my Fat Quarter Shop 2013 Mystery Block of the Month top while I was there. This was the only thing I worked on. It took me much longer than I expected. Sorry for the lousy photo. I don't have enough open floor space at the moment to get a decent shot.
It's almost time to mail my #bcchristmasbarnquiltmini. I was struggling on what binding to use. My original thought was it needed to be green, but my green Bonnie & Camille stash is pretty limited. So I pulled four different fabrics and asked Instagram. Luckily the correct person chimed in! I now know which fabric to use, but I'm keeping it a secret until it is received.
Here is the quilted top. The pattern is a free paper pieced block I found at Wombat Quilts. It is called Which Way North and I printed it at 50% in order to have a 6" finished block.
