Our first retreat for the year was last weekend,
and we certainly enjoyed some uninterrupted sewing time.
Margaret continued on with sewing these yummy red T blocks,
And by the end of the weekend, had made a start on putting the top together.
This quilt is going to be simply stunning!
Sandra made a start on her 9patch-snowball quilt,
And made it this far before running out of the red fabric.
Just waiting on the postie now for this quilt to become larger.
Chris brought these blocks along,
And before the weekend was over, had the top completed.
Hmm!! l think this would look great in red and white!!
She also completed this top, among other things not photographed.
She won the award for high achiever of the weekend.
Bev was hand piecing these Lemoyne stars.
And made good progress over the weekend.
Jill was also hand piecing blocks.
This quilt is looking stunning.
Remember l was sewing these back in January?
Over the weekend, l concentrated on this quilt,
Some of the girls took a walk uptown,
and l had completed the top by the time they returned.
This is what greeted them as they walked in the door.
This was their response.
All camera's loaded and firing!!
Of course, they could see it still needed improvements,
So l set to work and added a final outer border.
l first saw this quilt over on this blog and fell in love with it.
l had a block left over from my cross quilt, so just added a border.
There were a few flying geese left over from my daughters birthday quilt,
so we had a little play, and came up with this.
l love using leftovers!!
No pictures of food this time, we were too hungry!!
We watched movies, laughed and sewed, shopped and shared wonderful friendship.
All in all a GREAT weekend.
Can't wait to do it again girlfriends!!
Thanks for visiting.
P.S. l know l promised a giveaway. Its coming on the next post. Stay tuned.
