At last - it is departure day for the retreat. I have to admit that I am the least prepared for this retreat. I just grabbed current stuff - normally I am all prepped - strips cut (and I just realized that a bunch of strips that I did cut - are still hanging on the chair back behind me - ooops). Anyway - I just threw fabrics into bags and a ruler. I do not like cutting at the retreat - but these are back up projects anyway - I have enough with the Amish with a Twist to probably keep me busy the entire time.
Well what would happen if we got snowed in for a couple of days? Can't just sit around!
And as usual - I leave my studio in a huge mess.
|What a disaster and the upstairs is looking no better!!!|
I had a class yesterday - curved piecing. And look at the fabric choices............
|Marlene was making a different quilt from the rest of the group. She used TWO layer cakes and a background fabric. Looks awesome!!!|
|Yvonne was using some neat greens and grays|
|Heather was into teals|
|Gail had some pretty funky colours and fabrics|
Sorry - I can't show you the pattern as it is tucked into a bag somewhere - I hope to get a bit of those blocks done myself on the retreat!!!
Heather was also working on another project which she brought in to show us.
|These are her blocks from an online sampler class. The fabric choices are pretty neat!!She bought a kit - I love the funky stuff. Not something I would go out and buy (not yet), but pretty cool!!!!|
|Heather's hexies! - These are made for one block - two strips of hexies!|
Don't forget to check out QUILTSocial this morning. A very exciting announcement today!!! And at some point today - go back to this link to get the latest blog about the sewing machine and some awesome tips.
On that note - I am out of here to throw everything into the car and then I'm off.
Have a great day!!!
