We had lots of fun, ate some wonderful food, laughed a lot and got some quilting done in spite of ourselves.
I also sewed two baby quilts using one of the Big Block Baby Quilt patterns from Quiltmaker. They were cute and fast.
Next I started on the Falling Leaves - it still needs borders,etc.
Then there was the eventual goodbye hugs and the clean up.
Karen and I spent a quiet night alone at the retreat house and had some leftovers for dinner. We weren't very hungry. We did some rearranging of the tables for optimum usage with 8 people rather than 9.
The next morning, a whole new crew arrived and we were ready to start again.
My next project was Stars and Stripes. The basic idea came from the Quilts of Valor brochure, but I changed all those curves (sign of the cross) to some easy half square triangles. I think it came out neat. It still needs borders, etc.
I also made a quick case for Mom for her Nook for when she wants to stick it in her purse and not get it all scratched up.
It was a really good six days. I would do it again. But for now, I'm happy to be home.
