On Friday, I decided that Sunday needed to be a "solo retreat" day. I did get to spend most of the day in my sewing room. Some stitching definitely got done, but it was mostly handwork as I'm working on the binding for Calico Cats. Drama Teen wants to redo her bedroom decor. She was 9 the last time we redid it, so it's probably time. She picked out a quilt pattern a couple of years ago that she wanted for her bed.
We've been collecting Batiks to make this. So I spent a good amount of time hunting down those down. Which reminded me just how much I still have to do to get my fabrics all organized. That's a post for another day.
All of that just to say that there's not much change on the design wall. But I did finally get some time to take pictures of the completed Sweet Treats quilt.

I'm really happy with how this one turned out. It's a bit brighter in real life. The blocks were made with scraps of some 1930 reproduction fabrics that were left over from another project. I really like the lighter blue with the reds. The quilt is bound with the same red used in the second border.
The back is from the same line as the binding, just in a blue colorway.
Trudy Lindemann did the quilting. I love the meandering daises she used. It just adds to the summer time feeling of the quilt.
That's it for me this week. Once Judy get's her post up, I'll be linking up with her Design Wall Monday over at Patchwork Times.
