Turning Twenty - I did another one

My bee retreat was this past weekend and it was a blast... I never like to cut out anything when on retreat,, the mind just isn't focused to do that ( I'm too busy talking! ) so I cut everything and take pre-cut kits to work on. I figured that I couldn't screw up too much if I did another Turning Twenty, straight seams,, no matching seams,, and this is such a fun pattern for mindless sewing. Get a bunch of fat quarters together, cut them all the same, sew them together and -- WOW another quilt is done. So this was my first project for the weekend and I really did finish it on Friday!! well, everything except one side of the last border,, so I guess I can say I finished it - hey! it's my blog,, I can say it! I was sewing up a storm!! I finished the last border side on Saturday morning... I was quite proud of myself! I got a top finished, talked, ate, and had fun, too! Aren't retreats wonderful!?!

This one I think I'm going to practice some longarm quilting on.... my friend tells me to come try, so I think this is a good one to play with.

I am real happy with how it came out,,, maybe the oranges are a little strong,, but I still like it.


Tangerine Blues

I am going to call this one Tangerine Blues,,, hhmm wonder what is hiding in the stuffed closet that can be the back,,, but I'm going to leave that for another day .
