What I did on my retreat!

I was on my semi-annual retreat last week! It was fabulous! The weather turned more Spring-like and addition to the food and fun, there was lots of sewing!

I started this quilt. The pattern is from Fat Quarter Style. I modified the blocks a bit (big surprise!) to make them square and plan on setting them together like this.

I also finished the top of my "Scattered Blossoms Quilt" from the book Playful Petals. Ten of the blocks were made by some Bee friends, so I just had a few more to make.

Also on my retreat agenda was this tote bag. It's the small Art Student Tote by Anna Maria Horner. It was a breeze to make! All her patterns are so well written. I'd really like to make the bigger version now.

Three of my retreat-mates finished  (or almost finished) a Garden lattice quilt from my book, Simply Modern Christmas. I never tire of seeing this pattern done in different fabrics.

And this week I've started to machine quilt "Fletching", "Broken Arrows", "Jarts" quilt. You girls came up with such great names - now I can't decide which I like best :)

It's a lot of turning with the Zigzag lines, but totally worth it. The perfect quilting design for this one!

Thanks for stopping by!!
