I am rushing to get the borders on two of the quilt tops from the SpoolSpinners' retreat. Right now it is the Log Cabin top. I have added a narrow light border, and am measuring the wider red border for addition.
The rush was on because my chorus, The Grand Rapids Women's Chorus, is having our fall retreat beginning this afternoon for Saturday and Sunday. We will make a start on learning our new music, eat and play together, and have our traditional "No Talent Talent Show".

And lest you should think we only worked and worked and worked--we did have FUN too! Here are a few of the gals one evening enjoying "Pudding Shots" -- which are made from a little instant pudding, and a stiff shot of vodka with liqueur for flavoring.
Last week I was away at our Bee's annual retreat for three nights. What did I accomplish?
Then I got the back put together using extra sunflower fabric, some new green batik, and leftover portions of the blocks from the front:

And this is the other top I finished on B.I. I will take both tops to the retreat tomorrow and get the borders finished. Then I will hand them over to Catherine for quilting. Both of these were started THIS year, so I don't count them as UFOs yet.
