This is Royal Ridges Retreat.
Our surroundings are beautiful.
I always go to retreat with a plan of action.
I try to follow my plan...for the most part.
I leave with a big list of new projects I want to do.
First up was to finish the 24 September log cabin blocks
Next was to do the 12 star blocks.
The half square triangle papers were already pinned to the fabric.
I just had to sew, cut, press, then assemble the blocks.
The first 3 parts were easy.
I got distracted with the assemble part and ended up unsewing a bit.
But all is well and the October step is complete.
The I got busy and sewed the bottom half of the log cabin quilt.
a bit a lot giddy with excitement when this was finished.
I love it and my friends loved it and that made me happy.
Sometimes I kind of worry about my scrappiness.
I have the attitude that most anything goes with everything else.
And on here it does.
Then it was on to the assembly of the Sanctuary blocks.
This went together pretty fast and we all loved how cozy it is.
Now it is on the design wall/bed waiting for the border decision.
Then I worked on the mini quilt on the right called Busy Work.
It was a quilt along at Heartspun Quilts.
You can search her website for this project.
I loved the combination of the black and tan that I saw there so that's what I picked for mine.
The star on the left is block one of Carol Doak's new BOM on the Yahoo group.
You can find the link for the group on her website.
This quilt is called Scappy Scramble.
Perfect for me.
I'm not happy with the center so I'll redo it today.
All the while,
I'm working the Split 9 Patch leader/enders.
I couldn't believe I got 15 blocks made.
That's a lot of seams!!!
As always, retreat was a blast.
Can't wait for the next one.
Only 2 1/2 weeks.
