The beginning of June you might remember me chatting about Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods coming to teach at our guild’s Quilt Away 2011.
While Celine was here we took in a few quilt shops and the Hearts & Hands Quilt Guild’s quilt show. That was a very nice show with lots of vendors! While there we both fell in love with Betty Cummings’ (Village Mercantile in Booneville, IN) Itty Bitty Primitive Pinwheel quilt. She was selling kits so we each bought one to sew the next day. I was lucky enough that Celine stayed a couple extra days and we got to have our own mini retreat. We see each other during International Quilt Market each year, but we’re always so busy we’ve never had a chance just to sew and visit for fun.
I finally got mine quilted this week and finished the binding too.
Isn’t it cute? The pattern and template are by Primitive Gatherings. I added some of my own civil war prints to the kit. It’s fun to do someone else’s patterns once in a while too!
Celine, is yours done yet???
Until next time,
