We're down to the last month for all of the ongoing classes for 2021. And in an ideal world, all my quilt tops would be done! But alas, that's not happening, but I am close!
We had loads of fun at the Virtual REtreat last night, but I never even turned my sewing machine on! I was busy trimming quilts, and I have a few more to do today. I'd like to get them done as another group needs to be quilted this coming week. But I'm close to the end of the September/October batch, and a few are scheduled for November. I think that's what I'll focus on today - getting those quilts done!
Let's have a look at the Schoolgirl Sampler quilt this morning.
Here's the book in case you're not familiar with the quilt.
It's a beautiful quilt with lots of little four-inch blocks, which gave the group some challenge, and the center was applique! That was a first for some of them, so I think a Study in Applique class will be coming in the new year!
Anne's top is together and now the last part - to add the borders. A beautiful soft feel to this one.

We are missing a couple of quilts from the show and tell, and hopefully, we'll see them next month. Or parts of them.
So what does mine look like?
Here's my center applique block.

I can't wait to see how the others finish off their quilts! And now, I have a couple more writing assignments to finish, which I hope to do tomorrow. There was just other stuff going on yesterday that didn't allow that to happen.
Don't forget that we have Virtual Retreat all day. So be sure to stop by and say hi!! You never know what topics of conversation will pop up! I went to bed at 10, and there were still some diehards on the call! I think I'll be ducking out at some point for a wee nap as it was not a good night for sleep. But that's OK -- this happens from time to time.
Here's the link for today.
