Jan’s Reveal

The Frankfort Girls gathered yesterday at Terry’s house. We'd been mostly all together at the quilt retreat the previous week, and we were mostly all together at Terry's. It has been challenging getting 100% attendance lately. 

Anyway, that is neither here nor there . . . what I really want to do is show you a finish from Jan who was both at retreat and at Terry's. I shared in my retreat wrap-up that Jan was truly gnashing her teeth over the fussy piecing suggested for these panels. After about 4 done by the book, she decided to take liberties and simplify things. This made her much happier, and definitely sped up her finish rate.

Just look at all she’s accomplished one week post-retreat! Quilted and bound! It looks fantastic, and we all agreed that her altered blocks look just as good (if not better!) than the by-the-book blocks. If you've followed here long enough, you know Jan is our over-achiever, so it surprised no one that she had moved this project along so quickly. While we were together yesterday, she was stitching binding.

My Paris Flea Market Find quilt top was the only other show-n-tell item for the group. Since you saw all about it yesterday, I'll only re-run a quick photo. *wink*

Here on the homefront, I've not touched the long-arm machine in the 3 weeks we've been back from Florida. That NEEDS to become a priority - SOON. I am behind on about 3 baby quilts, plus several recent quilt tops that I want to finish off.

It is a gorgeous Saturday here in southern Ohio, although a bit on the chilly side. Breezy conditions are keeping temps in the mid-50s. Clear, cloudless skies, though, sure are a welcome sight! The trees are leafing out and flowering trees are bursting forth!

Have a great Saturday!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
