Wednesday, prepping for Retreat

I am continuing this week to start gathering projects that I'd like to work on at Retreat next week.

One will be to do a bit of work on the 54 Churn Dash blocks that will be needed at some point for my Midnight at the Oasis. I made one up yesterday just to see how cute it would be....these will work up as 3" finished blocks!...

I also took a few minutes to sew some of my Orange Peels to the centre medallion...

I have to confess, I've known for a while that my orange peels were not the correct size but went on anyway. Yesterday I had a moment of wanting to start them all over again. I have fourteen appliqued of the twenty needed. 

I've decided to leave them. Even though they are not going to give the effect that is intended in the pattern, they are still sweet little blocks. Or....I could do them over....I don't know, I don't know :(

I think today is my first time sharing the start of my Down the Rabbit Hole, the 2017 BOM offered by Sarah Fielke.

I'm a little behind, but not too much, since I've wanted to get close to finishing last year's first. That one, Happy Days, is nearly done....I think it will be on the list for Retreat!

This BOM is a medallion-style...and this will be the centre of the quilt. I've plopped a circle/flower on it so you can get the idea of where this is going....after all the stems are sewn on, there will be flowers and some leaves added.

Linking up with Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers and with Silly Mama Quilts for WIPs - Works in Progress and with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social
