Quilting retreats are so much fun, not only do you get to spend the weekend with other quilters who are just as passionate about fabric and quilting as you are, but they spoil you with goodies too. Here are some of the goodies given to each person at the retreat. One of the ladies made two potholders for each person, I love the green potholders I received. I can see there are a few things missing....the obvious item being chocolate, there's only one little chocolate nibble left and I gave the cookies to my DH. Also missing is a piece of reproduction fabric that I've already made into 9 patches.
Why does that pink fabric look orange....Grrrr....I need to learn how to take better pictures. This fabric is from the new Fig Tree line, I'm using two charm packs to make these stars. Not sure yet how many I can make, I'll keep making them until I run of of squares.
This project has been sitting in my closet for a very long time. I was hoping to get the top assembled but forgot there are six ladybugs to applique on the background squares and I wasn't sure if I liked the red fabric I had....so it all came to a screeching halt. I'd like to add the ladybugs before putting the top together.
I have to take a new picture of the wool block I was working on, so hopefully I'll have that ready for the next time.
