Quilt Fest 2012: 2 days of non-stop quilting!

I had some reeeeeally nice DST this weekend! "dedicated sewing time". ( and I was so DTS)

It was a fun retreat with the great gals from The Little Shop.

I almost didn't make it this year due to my insane amount of kidney stones.

I passed about 6 on my right side this past Oct/Nov...  and then they kinda stopped. I got new X-rays in January and they found 4 new buddies all huddled together in my LEFT kidney.

So i have been waiting for them to fall, and they started this week. Promptly Sunday night after dinner, and it went ALLLLLLLLLLL week.... non-stop insane PAIN for 4 days.
Here is an old photo of the one i PASSED on the right! what a little bugger at 6mm!

Thursday they at least knew I had a big sewing trip to go to they they stopped moving and i was able to go to my event mostly pain free!

I got there late Friday and then the fun began!

I got to work on this one quilt that had been stuck in my head forever. 

mini gentle curves

Then i moved on block 2  of  my Lollypops quilt. 
I was channeling my inner Pat and Bobbi.

Debbie is working on the Kim McLean quilt Flower Garden 

This is just ONE of the 4 borders. It's just amazing. i just love it.

The grand finale of Saturday night was Cindy finishing her amazing feathered log cabin. Creams, golds, and super rich dark purples.

I was piecing with some blue lame that Kay just gave me, and listing to my Cure. 


  1. Glad your stones let up enough so you could enjoy the weekend! So sorry you're going through that again though! Your Lollipop quilt is coming along!

  2. Hey, that's the same quilt I'm working on, Flower Garden!

    Keep trucking with the Lollipops, they will be fabulous! Circle circle circle - you will be a champ at circles!
