Our annual quilt retreat started on Monday. This year we are 21 women who all love fabric and quilting and eating. Here's a photo of a portion of our workroom.
We have seasonally appropriate centerpieces on our eating tables.
Also, appropriate cocktail napkins.
Part of our snack table, before happy hour begins!
I placed this sign on our outside door.
The coffee bar.
Now for a little bit of our work. (You'll see more in a later post.)
What do you see in this quilt? Dark cats? White cats? No cats?
Here's a close-up to help you see. I think this quilt is amazing.
This year we are again making squares for a Quilt of Valor. (See post from last year's retreat.) Each person used two 10" squares of contrasting fabric to make two half-square triangles. I love that there are so many ways to arrange HSTs.
I used light green flannel for my design wall, so please disregard that odd color!
I've been working on quilting last year's Quilt of Valor. (I know--how can it have possibly taken me a whole year to get it put together??!!?? I have no good answer.) I'll show more later, but I'm doing some straight line quilting, using a decorative stitch, and those curves inside the square parts.
