Here's what I've been working on for the past couple of days. It's called a Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher. You can see the tutorial over at The Crafty Quilter. She's doing a Christmas Once a Month tutorial on the 15th of each month this year, and this is the October project.
I just looked through my smaller fabric pieces and found a few that I thought would work.
This was fun to do; a quick and easy project.
Next Thursday my friend Kaci and I are going to a quilt retreat sponsored by Roseann of Rosebud's Cottage in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. This year it's in Rochester, Minnesota. This is our 4th year going to Roseann's retreats, and we always have such a good time.
These are some of the charm squares I'm taking along. They're from the line "Lovely" by Debby Beaves for RJR Fabrics. I bought two charm square packs, and I'm going to make an easy four-patch quilt with them. I love the purples and greens and the black background on some of the fabrics.
I have about 5 or 6 projects to take along. I'd rather have too many to finish than too few. Although with too few, I'd have to run out to a quilt shop and buy more fabric, etc. Maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing after all.
I'll be back after the retreat with some pictures, hopefully of a few finished tops.
