I am exhausted! We had a great time. I learn something new at every retreat, sometimes I even teach someone else something new.
This is my main project for the weekend. I wanted to start this mini wall hanging right when we got there but I had a couple other things to work on first. I did my April and May BOM and I worked on my step 4 for the Quiltville Orange Crush Mystery. Then we had the postcard class. Oh, that was so much fun.
After that class, I got going on my mini. Saturday night all 36 blocks were done. When they are pieced together for the center, it will measure 9"! Holy crap! I thought the center was 12" but I was wrong. Wait right there, I am going to go measure.
Eeeek!!! It measures, right now, unsewn, 10 1/2". Each block finished to 1 1/2". Lordy, what was I thinkin'!!! Honestly, I love the way it's looking. I can't wait to get the "quilt" sewn and the borders on it. I need to sew the corner blocks before I can add the borders. It would be fun to have it done before retreat #2 in 3 days. Then I could start another one!
But now I'm tired, I need to unpack a few things and wait for my next bunch of company to arrive. It's been a great Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Day to you all.
