I know, where have I been and what have I been doing?    I think I over did it at the Retreat.  It's taking me a long time to get back into the groove again.  I'll start with showing you what I did at the Retreat.

 I started this jelly roll racer Thursday night and finished it on Friday morning.  So interesting the way the fabrics play out.  Just like working with variegated yarn.

Then I worked on a Halloween quilt.  I started this Friday and finished it up on Saturday morning.  This was made with my Halloween stash.  And yes, I still have lots of that stash left!  LOL  We took a break to go to a local quilt shop, which was fun.  It's so hard to not buy more fabric.  (I have so much stash now, it's hard to justify buying more fabric.)

The last top I finished was another jelly roll racer.  I love the way the black weaves itself around in this one.   And then I started one more top on Sunday, which I'm still working on now.

Have a great evening and I'll be back tomorrow with more pictures!

I seem to have had trouble getting back to blogging again also after the retreat! And I don't really have anything to show for it!

Love your racers and the Halloween quilt is great. I love Halloween, it's like the least stressful holiday :)

Those racers are pretty many strips did you use for the bottom one? I think this would be a great project for my wanna be quilter sister! lol

I can't believe it took me 8 months to find this pattern. I had to go look up jelly roll racer. That looks like such fun with the right fabrics. Yours looks great!
