I love Quilting Retreats!!!

Home from a 4 day retreat in Galveston, TX.  Great time!  Intense sewing until I couldn't see straight! Our hotel faced the water.  Great location with plenty of eating places within walking distance.  Huge room to sew in...we had 91 ladies!!!!  The hotel room was actually a suite with kitchenette.  I was fortunate to join a large quilt guild in the Houston area and when I am visiting my friend who lives in the area, I get to attend the meetings, workshops, retreats and such with her as a member of the guild.

So what did I get done??  Not as much as I wanted, but still.......

That braid quilt that I've had laying around for a couple years...top finished!!

The First Mystery Quilt at Just Us Quilters on Facebook.  Top finally finished.  I didn't have enough of the darker purple to add a border, so I will use it for the binding to hopefully give it a more finished look.

 The Scrap Happy Quilt with Quilt Along with Pat Sloan on Facebook.  Top finished!!  I like the way this one turned out.  I used 5" samplers that I purchased many years ago.  They are more along the line of Kansas City Trouble fabrics...darker prints.  I paired them with a pretty peachy color and framed it out with a darker rusty fall fabric. 
I also worked on the Carol Doak Yahoo Group's BOM.  I'm behind on that and almost got one month's blocks finished.  Still have 2 more of the small stars to get done.  I'm 3 months behind and April is almost here to add another month...Sigh!  Oh well, they'll eventually get done.

A lot got accomplished in 4 days!  I'm happy!!

Keep on Stitchin'!!
