Recently, our guild held its fifth retreat. It was only my second time attending. What?! Here’s our official group photo:
It is no surprise that we all had a terrific time! Check out our hashtag on Instagram to see some amazing quilt projects in the works. I only worked on three projects. I consider that a success since I only brought four.
Most of my sewing time was spent making Liberty hearts to add to a very old WIP. I managed to make over 175 blocks during the weekend!! (I scrolled back through old blog posts to find a link to the “old WIP”, but it must have been started during one of my blog hiatuses.)
In addition to sewing, I did a bit of shopping thanks to Sew Modern Chicky’s pop up shop.
It was a nice change to drive (rather than fly) to a retreat and have the space to bring my own bed quilt and pillow. I brought a favorite bee quilt and the pillowcase my friend Cindy made me.
Do you participate in any quilting retreats? They are a great way to connect with friends and recharge your creative batteries!
