I had scheduled today and tomorrow off quite some time ago for a quilt retreat, that of course, given the current situation with COVID-19 has been cancelled, and rightly so. So instead of quilting with friends I’m taking today and the next three days to quilt. I’m not as focused today as I had hoped I would be (I’m getting stuff done but am scattered in my focus and taking lots of breaks) but I am working on getting some of my many quilt tops quilted!
I got one quilt quilted this past week, and today finished one I started yesterday after work as well as getting a third one totally quilted! Here is the one I quilted this morning.
I’m calling this my haitches quilt, because of the H shaped blocks. I have a few of these blocks left over from this project and will very likely be making another of these quilts as it was so fun and easy to put together. Bonnie Hunter was making these a few years back and while her version of the quilt was more complicated than I wanted to go hence coming up with this design.
I have layered and spray basted another quilt but the first row I sewed I had the opportunity to unstitch. After the unstitching I decided I needed a break from the quilting part of the process.
So I’m working on putting together another Hundred Hugs Quilt. This is my go to baby quilt pattern. This may be the 4th or the 5th one I’ve made – I’ve lost track! Here it is so far, with two more rounds to go.
I’ve got the half square triangles made for the next round and probably will assemble that round after I post this. Unless of course I get sucked into more web and blog surfing.
Now I’ve read about all I’ve done today I haven’t been as unfocused as I thought – things are getting done!

Great blue/green Hundred Hugs. It is fun to make, versatile and uses scraps. What’s not to like!?
Enjoy your “at home” quilt retreat.
Cute quilts!! Wishing you SEW much progress as you “retreat” at home.
Really love those blues and greens! It seems like every day is retreat day at home these days!
I love the quilting design in Haitches. Both quilts are lovely. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.
Things are getting done! So sorry though that you had to miss your retreat. The result though is very pretty indeed! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
