A great quilting retreat

I went to the quilt retreat last weekend sponsored by Quilter's Cupboard ( - 27 hours of quilting! It was a great way to get some projects worked on and a lot's of fun to watch what others were working on.

These two quilts are the same blocks, but look really different after each quilter finished them. Just goes to show that you could make only one pattern and never have two identical quilts....

A lot of brainstorming and playing with fabrics went on.

And of course there was a lot of great food. I really enjoyed the four different homemade soups and the three different casseroles. And the cakes were great!

And finally, this was my biggest accomplishement for the weekend.

All of the fabrics came from my stash, now I have to figure out the best way to quilt it!

Since the weather was so great, I actually packed up and left a couple of hours early so that I could take the Beagle Belle for a walk. Both of us have cabin fever and are looking forward to camping weather and those long walks.
