Not bad for a Quarter

Yep paid 25 cents for the kit which included all the fabric to make the top. We have a "store" of gently used or cast offs at our quilting retreat. It was originally marked $9.25 and it's all Thimbleberries fabric. I had a small piece of batting and backing already here. Done!!!

Another Fall project finished.

Quilt Retreat

Last weekend I had the great fortune to be included in a quilter's retreat. My good fortune was unfortunately at the misfortune of another who could not attend. But I had a really great time. I find it amazing that you can enter a room with 11 other quilters (knowing only one of them) and leave knowing like you've been friends forever.

The setting was spectacular.

This is where we ate our meals. Which were prepared by a chef and were out of this world.

This is where we slept. For those of us who went to bed.

The sewing area was in a building next to the dorm. we each had a 6 foot table to ourselves ........Plenty of room to work.

This was a quilt that one of the girls brought for show and tell. These pictures don't do it justice.

This was a finished quilt from the weekend. All the blocks were already made and 2 of the rows were put together when she came but she had a finished top to go home.

That's what these weekends are for me. I finish up my projects. I made 2 backs so I could take the tops to my machine quilter. One was my Halloween quilt which she is basting for me and I will hand quilt. The other was Tori's Flip Flop quilt. So I can cross those off my list.

I will take pictures of my other finished project and post them tomorrow.
