Getting Ready to Retreat…..

I am getting ready to go on a Quilter’s Retreat this weekend with ladies from Cindy’s Quilt Shop. We are packing up our sewing machines and projects to sew and bond together up in the mountains of Idaho at the Ashley Inn in Cascade. The air should be moist with the predicted rain and the trees will be just finishing up their colors but it should be a fun weekend.

My list of possible projects has had to be reduced to just four…Angles and Squares...hoping to finish piecing the mostly plaid blocks together into the top and cut & attach on the four borders….


….. a stripy challenge quilt top, made from a jelly roll, that is part of the retreat


…..applique blocks for the cabin quilt and bind my summer sampler lap quilt.


I’ll also participate in the Christmas fat quarter game on Saturday night.


I have also thrown in several packets from my All American Star project as well as the Christmas quilt I am hand quilting.

Know I won’t get everything done (or even worked on) but I don’t wish to get bored or run out of things to do!

Still have laundry to do plus some more prep to do on the bead pieces for the cabin applique quilt. Never a dull moment here!!!
