A Dilly Dally Weekend!

Our guild had a "Time to Sew" weekend ... as always, it was a ton of fun ... you can read about it here.  Usually the only thing I accomplish is socializing, but I actually managed to get some things done!
Valerie and I made matching tablerunners.  The designer and pattern information is on the guild blog.  I had never used a G.E. Designs "quilt as you go" pattern before ... I loved it!  I plan to use more of her designs in the future!
I recently had my Popsicle Sticks quilted by one of our local long arm quilters.  I pieced this last summer using two Bali Pops, one colorway was called Berry Bliss and the other Cappachino.  I was very happy with how the colors worked out and am absolutely in love with the pattern!  Terry Atkinson has another hit on her hands!  I sewed the binding on and today began hand sewing it down while watching the Oscars.
This is a scrap quilt I pieced a while ago ... it has a lengthy back story, so I'll share that when it's finished.  I pieced the backing while at the guild event, so it is off to a local long arm quilter this week! 
Most importantly ... I made my Dilly Dally goal of getting another log on the cabin blocks!  Honestly ... it was tough with traveling this week and work ... but I finished them this morning!  Yep ... I did the happy dance!

That is the dillydally news from this remote corner of the planet!  I hope you had an opportunity to dillydally this weekend!  Have a great week!  Do dillydally!


  1. Hi Mrs. Dilly, found your blog on Facebook "Free Quilt Patterns" page. I definately fall into the Dilly Dally Lifestyle! Love your scrap quilts. Scrappies are by-far, my favorite. The talk of your Guild sewing weekend got me even more excited for my small group Spring quilt retreat. We're going to a new retreat place made just for quilters, owned by a local quilt shop Dividing up the meals between all of us, bringing lots of projects and plan to have a wonderful time, whether we get anything accomplished, or not. Thanks for sharing, and happy quilting!
