More Retreat

Suzanne, our Quilt Retreat Hostess, always has a gift for each of us. This is a bag filled with buttons, a covered notebook (that she made) and a chocolate bar wrapped and ribboned. The sticker says, "So much CHOCOLATE, so little time".

This is a quilt I took to take the binding off of. I used the backing fabric for the binding and didn't like the way it looked on the front with the rich fabrics. However, the vote after folding it over and seeing how it would look, was to keep it and save me the trouble of all that ripping out. I'll be working on that tonight.

This is what I worked on. You can see the baseball quilt and the bag of applique that I was sure I would have time for also. I love this quilt and I'm sure the young man I am giving it to will love it too. Funny how I didn't notice until I looked at the picture that most of the light reds are on one side!

I do enjoy getting together with other quilters spending the day working on projects, seeing what others are doing, laughing, talking and eating. Thank you again, Suzanne, for sharing your home with us.

Happy Quilting! Lynda
