Retreat Progress


The retreat was a blast! We had fun with the games and a few people went home with some awesome prizes  such as the Kim Diehl blocks, two jelly roll race quilts and someone donated the cutest little quilt. Maybe next year I'd be so lucky. We all had fun regardless of what we came home with.

I made a little progress on my scrappy sewalong blocks. I'm so slow making these but will keep at it until I'm done.
I put together these blocks that will become a tabletopper for the spring and summer.
Sashing has been added to my HST's blocks from Pam Buda's sewalong. Mine will be larger as the blocks are 8" finished. I think the final size will be 48" square. I'm waiting for a border fabric to arrive. I ordered 2 different fabrics in hopes that one will be right.

We had a fun night of curling and pizza with friends last night. Our first time, might give it a go again sometime.

Happy Quilting!

Love both your table toppers. The half square triangle one is really wonderful. I should have joined in that sew a long!

Love all that you have done. The first time I knew about curling was on a show called Corner Gas which is a Canadian comedy series. I have the 1st 3 seasons on DVD. Glad you had a fab time. Retreats are always fun.

Great projects Wendy! The blocks in the second photo look so familiar, but i can't place the pattern~? Have a great week!

I do like all your beautiful stitching, especially the scrappy sew-along blocks. There is nothing better than getting together with friends to stitch.
