We each have our own table and set up a workstation... Many different types of sewing machines, projects, and quilting tools.
Do you think we brought enough stuff?
Sew when you want to...sleep when you want to...eat when you want to...NO rules, no quilt police!
We bring some food with us and usually eat dinner at local restaurants.
This is the amazing view from my room on the 6th floor.
Everyone brings their own projects to work on...
I decided to use this bright colored jelly roll to create a Bargello quilt. Using Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Bargello pattern, I had fun making this quilt. Borders will be added later this week.
I have made a few pencil cases, however, this one by Lorelei Jayne is the easiest and nicest one I have found. It is a free pattern and available here.
Each retreat we are given a craft to complete (totally optional) and this year our kit included enough supplies and instructions to make two coasters. Very easy and very cute!
It's a great opportunity to rewind, refresh, and rediscover the joy of sewing and reconnecting with friends.
Til next time...
