Retreat Show and Tell

It's been a catch up week after being gone on another retreat last week. A group of quilty friends and I go on 2 retreats a year. This one was a bonus! We really wanted to try out the new facility connected to Sew Sweet Quilt Shop in Brunswick, MO. And, wow! It did not disappoint! If you're in the midwest and looking for a lovely place for a retreat this is it. Check out Brunswick Lodging and Event Center. And literally connected to a quilt shop - shopping encouraged!

Having been on a retreat last month and coming home with 2 quilt tops, I decided this time I would take some smaller projects that could come home finished. And it worked out great! Here's what I made:

A tablerunner from my book Simply Modern Christmas...

I thought it was about time I had one on my table. The fabric is Joel Dewberry's newest line, Birch Farm.

A mini Dwell...

pattern by Thimbleblossoms.

Super Tote, pattern byAnna from Noodlehead using Anna Maria Horner's linen feathers fabric...

A coordinating zip pouch (which I actually finished once I got home because I cut one piece too small), free tutorial here...

Three grocery totes using a pattern from Splendor Falls with fabric designed by 1canoe2...

 And some more blocks for my Cheerio quilt, pattern by Thimbleblossoms...

slowly coming together...

A lot accomplished and more importantly a fun time with friends!!!


  1. Pretty stuff! I love the runner-- I have your book and have made four of them. Such a great gift.
    Can you share what the background is on the runner with the Birch Farm? I have been trying to find something that I like. Yours looks good.

  2. Wow, that was a productive weekend. Everything looks great; I especially like the table runner.

  3. Everything looks great Cindy! Your Cindyfied grocery bag looks so cute! I'm glad you made it your own; the short handles are so fun!

  4. All the projects look fun and the fabrics make them look extra special. Thanks for showing.
