Winter 2017 Sewing Retreat Prep

You guys, I’m going to be sewing all weekend with my IMQG girls.  AHHH!  One of my friends noted, “It’s like Christmas Eve. But better because I don’t have to deal with making anyone else happy!!!!!”  Exactly.  

Sorry that I have been a little more quiet on here this month.  There is secret sewing going on that I can’t reveal.  It’s a big project that is taking more than I anticipated.
This weekend is going to be glorious because I’m only taking scrap or personal projects.  No commissions, just fun time to sew.  Well chat, drink, and then sew.  Best part is spotty wifi, so we all get a chance to disconnect.  I have lots of tutorials and inspiration stored to Pocket.
Here are some projects I’m thinking about taking for the weekend.
Shabby Chic Granny Squares
Scrappy Irish Chain
Yes another one.  I loved the one I made last year and want to work on another.
Solid Diagonal Strip Quilt
This has been a project in the works for a while.  I just need to sew the back and quilt it.
Diagonal Strip Quilt
I have a V&Co jelly roll that I have been hoarding.  This would be a great project following this tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew.
HST V&Co quilt
HSTs are cut, pressed, and ready.  Now I just need to decide a layout idea.  I’m thinking something like this.  Maybe a bit scrappier.  Thoughts?
Scrappy Love
I have been pulling out pink, red and purple scraps lately to create something.  I’m toying with the idea of a big LOVE project.  Maybe baby sized, but using some scraps and stash.
Older WIPS
In all transparency there are some OLD works in progress that I should take and finish this weekend.  They are stuffed away in baskets and cabinets so they don’t sit there reminding me.  “Hey, we aren’t finished yet.”  Maybe it’s time to finish the one from our overnight sew in from five years ago.
Whatever I bring it all needs to fit into my giant IKEA bag.
