At retreat this weekend I was able to get these 4 blocks finished for Missing Ivy (which is Judy Laquidara’s Road to Brenham Pattern).  I started the first step early in September but the project was put aside by Ammabel’s quilt.  I’m really happy with how it is turning out.  Originally I was going for scrappy but I love the fabrics as they are and no longer want to do the scrappy thing.  I know I have enough of the dark blue and marble cyan but I’m not sure of the yellow and I ran out of the white this weekend.  I went online and had a hard time finding it at my normal online shops.  It’s LakeHouse Sweet Things – white on White – Flowers and Circles –



I finally found it and I bought enough to finish Missing Ivy and to use for Celtic Solstice if I choose to.  I found the fabric from Winters Lane that have been out of stock everywhere else too so I’ll have a ton of yardage to add to my stash report.  I can’t wait to get it in the mail.  I’ll be packing up this project this weekend because on Friday this quilt will get set aside again.  This time by Celtic Solstice.  If the first step requires the white fabric I may have to go with the scrappy white that I originally planned.

Hampton Ridge BOM Block 3 Finished  November 22, 2013

Block 3 Finished

I also was able to get Block 3 of Hampton Ridge finished on Friday – day one of the retreat.  I’m still on track with this BOM because I haven’t received the November Package yet.  I am getting better at matching those points.  I didn’t match them very well in Block 1 and Block 2 was better but still not great.  I feel really good with Block 3 and it went together fairly easily.  I could have gotten it done quicker on Friday if I wasn’t bombarded with as many interruptions as I had.  But it was what it was and I’m happy with how it turned out.
