Siggy Quilt

Monday when I went to Jenn's to sew, I needed a new project to work on, since I was kind of between quilting projects. I've been doing the quilt along with several of my retreat friends, so I pulled out my Siggy quilt blocks from the retreat and set to work on making them. I got 8 of the 12 blocks done and now I just need to make a few more blocks and put it together. I can't wait to get it together and hanging in my office for a while and then it'll move to the big wall in my studio. Each block I made, reminded me of so many of the fun times I had while at retreat and how much I'm missing not going to the retreat this year. There will be another year, so I'll just live vicariously through my chicas and wait to hear all about it. They know I'll be there is spirit!
My design wall has the blocks on it reminding me of all my amazing friends.
Regina & Jen kept giving me a hard time that the quilt isn't purple, but as Jen says Red and Blue make purple.
I still have the blocks on my design wall and I don't believe how big this quilt is turning out to be, but I know it's going to be awesome. Hopefully I'll get to work on it a bit this week, but since the Stock Show is in town, I'm not sure how much time I'll have.

We had so much fun that night. You will be so missed but we do understand. You'll be there in spirit and through the power of the internet and cell phones.
