More from the Quilter's Weekend Retreat

The motivation from the weekend continues.  I have been busy trimming the corner units I sewed over the weekend and finishing the nine patches that were begun months ago but worked on over the weekend.
Sixty finished and twenty left to trim!

Close to one hundred future nine patches stacked and ready to piece.

Some of the goodies found in our retreat bags, compliments of Folk Art Quilts located in Wakefield RI.

Goody bags lined up and ready to go to Retreaters!

Thanks to all for your friendship, humor and willingness to have fun as we traveled "all the way" to the Hampton Inn in Coventry, RI this past weekend.

Already looking forward to next year!

Projects and Progress

Here at the First Annual Quilters Weekend Retreat there has been much progress on projects.
Joan's  20 year old project wall hanging top is now together.  Yeah Joan! 

Chris and Lyn worked on their owl friends.  Lynn's still needs a mouth.

One of Judy's paper pieced trees.

Joyce's mug placemats were finished this weekend.

One of Carol's hexagons with equilateral triangles.  

Mary's string blocks are coming together!

Will Delores's ONLY unfinished project EVER finally be finished?
Looks like she still has a bit of work to go on it.

Just an example of some of the projects in progress here at the Quilter's Weekend Retreat.

How's your weekend going?

Packing for the Quilter's Weekend Retreat

Now that the paperwork is finished and the room is arranged for the start of the Quilter's Weekend Retreat, I am home packing projects, gift bags and other miscellaneous items.

As usual I am over packing! And I still haven't gotten to the clothes!

We begin at 9 AM tomorrow and I cannot wait!

Maybe I will post some our doings over the weekend.  I hope you will enjoy seeing the work of our group.

Until then, happy quilting!
