Still Recovering...

Hi Everyone,

You know how it is when you have to come home to get a break from your vacation? The First Annual Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild Retreat was last weekend. I can't say it was really a vacation because I was actually working there too but it was a lot of fun. I can't believe it is Wednesday! I have been so busy catching up the last two days that I barely had time to turn around.

This is the small item I had time to sew there:

It is the top of my Pillow Talk Swap Pillow... the light was not great there so I will try to get a better picture once it is quilted and before I ship it off.

Woodland Tails showed up on Friday... it is so darn cute...


The cheater panels are nice and big a full yard by WOF. What I like about this is there are a bunch of fabrics that don't have pink in them so you can pick and choose and make a boy quilt with them. I am in love with the vine fabric (third from the bottom in the pink and blue stacks and second from the bottom in the green) I want to make something for me with it.

Here are some more pictures from the Retreat.


This is Adrianne our President and fearless leader. She was the first to start up her machine at retreat. She will be my roommate at Spring Market so you will be seeing her again :)

This is the room and those are my bins of fabric for everyone to sort through.

This is adorable Patty she had the first item made. That cute little thread catcher.

Here is Ruth (she was the founder of our guild) hard at work.

  10. Pretty! I want to make a quilt like your pillow top for my sister someday. She has that same pattern currently on her bed that my grandma pieced by hand years ago. It's badly in need of repair and I'd love to give her a new version!

  15. LOVE your pillow top.
    Just gotta say...not loving the word verification. So hard to read. Many times I just don't bother leaving a comment. Why are so many bloggers using them now? Blech.
