One of the activities we had with the group was a pincushion swap. These are pictures of the ones I received...but also, my friend Peggy gave me two of these as a little giftie. She made the slice 'o cake and the prim rooster. I love 'em all!
I accomplished quite a bit while there...of course, I took many more projects than I would have time for, but I think I did pretty well. Robin brought a retreat project for the the three of us...we all made charm totes! Mine is made from my favorite Kansas Troubles fabrics. Peggy's was with Thimbleberries club fabrics and turned out really pretty. Robin's was from Moda's Chutes and Ladders fabric and was really cool too! Thanks Robin!!
I also completed a Thimbleberries project called Woodland Stars....it's not quilted yet, but I finished the top.
I had the blocks completed for this blue and yellow quilt, so I just needed to make the setting strips and sew them together. I am so pleased with how this one is turning out! I think I'll be putting two more borders on it, one thin yellow border and then another wider one, but I have to do some searching for the perfect fabric!
Next I made a Little Charmers runner using the Prairie Paisley charm pack. I love that fabric! It's yummy! :)
If you want to see pics of all the retreat gals and some of their show and tell quilts, you can look at my webshots pics...there is a lot of great quilts to see!
