Thursday was the first day of our Quilt Retreat at Blooming Escapes. I’m thrilled to be spending the weekend with 10 of my friends but a total of 22 women.
I came to retreat with a list of things to accomplish for each day. At the end of day one I’m still on track.
Modified Urban Cabin quilt top. There will actually be 3 of these; but 2 in similar colors. These will go into my stash for when I need a comfort quilt. I’ll add the borders when I know who they are going to.
Next up was to work finish the assembly of 1/4 of my Modified Strip Twist quilt. Modified…that seems to be my buzz word! God forbid I do anything exactly following the instructions that a pattern gives. This quilt top requires a LOT of pinning so it’s slow going. The good news is, I think I have only about 5 more rows to add and the top is done. Would you believe I actually started making this quilt to go in my car? Yeah, I don’t think it’s destined to hang out in my trunk for when I need a quilt.
Last project of the night was to work on a few rows of my Flowers for Kashmir quilt. This quilt is totally NOT my thing. But I’m working my way through it because I own the borders and backing as well. I have 3 more rows to add.
It’s now 2 am…time for bed!
