...November Retreat Roundup
And what a retreat it was.
I got so much done while having so much fun.
I have nothing on my design wall but I have great completed projects.
First thing I did was make the block for Wishes Quilt Along.
Then I did the borders for Tell It To The Stars.
Next up I made my final block (the one I just knew I had already made!
and will probably find someday in a different project box!!)
and made the connector blocks for Friends and Companions.
Then put them all together, added the setting triangles and borders.
I love a good retreat TahDah!!!
And how fitting that my Friends were with me when I finished this top.
I added a few more Pineapple Crazy blocks.
(Not these particular ones,
I'm too lazy to get the bin out and take a picture.)
And added quite a few new to me scraps from friends.
It was fun to see when they found their fabrics.
We do strip swaps.
Usually 2 1/2" black/whites, neutrals and batiks
but this retreat we added a new category.
1 1/2" neutrals!
Look at that selection.
35 different fabrics.
I am the swapper so I get the up close and personal look at all the great fabrics.
I am trilled to have added 60 strips to my stash!!
I had to stop Friday morning on my way in to Royal Ridges to take pictures.
The fall colors with the sunshine streaming in was just gorgeous!
I looked out my window to see these beauties up on the hill.
I will miss retreat season but
I am ready to hunker down at home for the winter.
Of course it hasn't officially arrived yet but it sure feels like it has.
