That's the Plan!!

What do the following 5 photos have in common?

If you guessed they are all half square triangles you would be half right.

If you guessed that they are colors other than red and white you would be doubly right!!

They are coming at me from all sides!!
l am completely surrounded by them!!

l am packing for a retreat at Sorrento this weekend.
And while l have 2 red and white projects that MUST get finished,
 l am so ready to play with color again,
after a self imposed year long red and white sewing marathon.

Its been the best fun, but these little bundles of color
 are calling my name louder and louder each day.
What's a girl to do!!

Throw in some 9 patches that want to play too!!!

 And some coffee mats that just need their binding stitched down.
 This is great mindless sewing in front of the TV
 at night with a good movie. ( and a glass of wine!! )
Oh, did someone say chocolate???

l will press on and get this one finished.
This won't take long.

Then there are these waiting for attention.
l know what l am doing, in my mind, just need to make it happen. 

And if those little colored squares of goodness don't complain too loud,
 l might even dive in here and see what we can do. Or not!!!

Its looking like a fun stitching weekend.
l have 4 quilty friends joining me, so l am sure that laughter will fill the house,
as well as good food, tons of fabric, cheese and hopefully chocolate!!
Oh, did l say wine!!

Come back next week and see what went right and what went wrong!!

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Oh, what fun! Have a wonderful quilty time!

  2. Gosh, it all looks like such great fun...enjoy!

  3. Sounds perfect! Have a great time.
    Hopefully meeting up with Virginia at the Festival of Quilts tomorrow.

  4. Have a ball!!!

    Looks like you have plenty to keep you busy. Love all those hst and nine patches.

    Have some chocolate for me! Lol

  5. Oh! How I wish I enjoyed piecing like this...sitting at the machine for long hours makes my old back ache. I cant wait to see what you do with all these beautiful pieces! Me...I will be doing some appliqué and hand quilting this weekend!

  6. Oh, that sounds like such fun - anxious to see some pics from the party!

  7. Have a great weekend, I'm just a little bit jealous

  8. Yes, although the R & W is great, a splash of color can get your creative juices flowing. I'm looking forward to not appliquing my BTCT, one more border to go!

  9. It looks like you are all set for a terrific time! Happy stitching.

  10. I like the way you think Linda! And your red & white quilt is to die for. I'm working on a blue & white polka dot one that is very similar that I like a lot but the red & white is a show stopper. Enjoy your weekend...and the wine...and the chocolate...Life is short!

  11. Great work! I appreciate it.Best of luck.

  12. Have a great time, looks like you have lots of fun things to work on.
    Love the HST and the nine-patches

  13. have a wonderful retreat Linda! Looks like you won't run out of projects!!
