Busy Days

I have had some busy days the last few days. Monday and Tuesday were rainy than hot and humid so pretty much stayed inside.  Saturday a couple of friends and I went shopping.  I found this wonderful batik for backing of my Retreat Quilt.

Monday when the directions came out for the Red, White, and True QAL I was able to complete that. Thank you rain.

I love how this is looking.  I picked up some really cute red, white and blue polka dot fabric that I thought would make a nice border, but it was really too busy with the background fabric.   So I need to find a border fabric before next Monday so I can complete this when the directions come out. Have you checked out the Quilt Along?  Go - right now, I'll wait until you come back.

I also have made these 4 table toppers.  They are waiting for a friend who will be doing some embroidery work for the four sashing that go around the toppers.  It's been fun putting my stash fabrics together to make these.

Lots of quilty sewing fun going on during these rainy, hot and humid days!

Your quilt is looking so nice! I love it! The runners are cute too, will they have sayings on the sashings? I'm intrigued.
