Taking a break

This is a retreat weekend but Keith and I are going to run a couple errands and get a late lunch. Although most of my time is being spent on HeartStrings projects this weekend - I did finish up the last blocks from my July QFAH project LATE last night. Here's the final block!

I'm almost done with the quilting of the HeartStrings top - it's for a breast cancer patient and was pieced by Barb in MN. I think the roses look lovely on it.

I love that QFAH block! Very striking.
The roses do look lovely on the pink.
Enjoy your retreat!

Yes, I still want to do that QFAH quilt, too. Every time I see someone working on it, it reminds me. VBG Good progress so far on the quilting. Hope you had a nice lunch with Keith.

Love your color choices on your quilt for an hour! Mine is finished except for the binding, and then I will show it on my blog. The quilting is just right on the other quilt. We are making a siggy quilt for our secretary at work, who also has breast cancer.

I love the Rose quilting panto. I've seen something very similar before and when I commented on it to the LAer she said it was one of the first pantos she ever bought, but it was one of the least often asked for!! Weird :)

Love the string quilt with yellow sashing ... rose vine is perfect.
