As much fun as we had this past weekend in Minnesota, it hard to believe any work got done… But we do have something to show for our time there!
I think the most impressive finish was Shelly P’s star ground for her patriotic challenge quilt…
Bless her heart, she stuck with this pile of template cut pieces until she had this gorgeous piece sewn together:
And here she is on Sunday morning, giddy with excitement and wrapped in her FINISHED hexagon quilt:
Rene moved to a new home within the last month, and then packed up to fly from Florida to Minnesota to join us. A little quilt angel dropped off a precut quilt on her doorstep just days before she left, knowing she probably didn’t have time to get a project ready for retreat (how sweet is that!?!) Here is her gifted kit nearing completion…
Blocks were pieced,
Messes were made,
Sewing machines hummed,
Tops came together,
Quilts grew in size,
UFOs came out of hiding,
and to-do-lists got shorter,
No wonder we all came home tired and worn out!
I even finished my Chrysanthemum Quilt this weekend, pics to follow very soon….
