Retreat Winner!




Here I am at the Quilting Retreat. We made two different blocks for two block lotteries -- a floating churn dash and a spinning star blocks. I made two of each blocks so my name was entered twice in each drawing. Guess what????? I won the churn dash blocks -- 20 of them!!! I couldn't believe it. I think that I will make some more blocks to go with these and put them together for a table topper.




We've been having a great time! We have laughed so much we "nearly" peed our pants! Imagine that! And the food, oh my gosh, it was really good -- I know I must have gained!!!! Oh well.


It is late and I'm still up working on the firefighter quilt for my oldest son. Ya know it is one of my goals for April. I have to get it finished by mid-May for his graduation. I'll be posting pictures so stay tuned..........

I especially like the quilt on the right side of your blog - I've made it with Christmas fabrics, but I think yours is quite pretty. Are the centers you used muslin or ?????
Great job and welcome to this ring. I'm new too. It's much fun.

Retreats are good for the soul aren't they? Winning the blocks is an added bonus to all that laughing!

Retreats are just the greatest places to sew and get new ideas. Your blocks look great.
