A Week's Retreat at Sorrento!

Who knew how much you could get done in a week's retreat!!

On Sunday packing up, as l thought back through the week,
l didn't feel l had achieved much. But back home looking
through the photos, l can see it was a really productive
 week, not just for me,  but all the girls who came.
And because there are so many photos,
 l will share them over a few posts.

At the start of the week, Margaret came
 and gave me some pattern wrtiting lessons on the computer.
Thanks Margaret.

Then l had several quilts to trim and prep for binding.

Make that 3!!

Anne was busy getting her swap blocks sewn together.

And l started work on a border.

For this quilt that l showed you back here!

Anne had some show and tell of quilts
 she has made for our exhibition in October.

These ones have been prepped for hand quilting.

These next few are just back from the machine quilter,
and  had their bindings attached.

l made good progress on the borders.
All 4 finished and ready to be attached.

Then came the decision on which fabric to use!

Stay tuned!! Many more pics and good times to come.

Thanks for visiting.
