    Tote done and lips sealed on all the mistakes I made

    Hubby took pics and didn't align the solid so it showed across the bottom. I obviously messed up on the magnet. Next one will be better (I hope) Love the material in it and the green picked up the other greens. Had problem with the zipper and ruined a whole section, so figured out how to make one anyhow, and it is a mix of lining and green inside. Got it all done today...so maybe went to fast. Sewed till 11 p.m. CA time. Thanks so much for the hard work you did, Carolyn and all you otherwise did for me, so I could be in the retreat.

    Hugs to all.

    Great totes, everyone. Carolyn -- love your quilt. Maybe one of these months' VQD, you could teach us how to do the diamonds and get them set in? This was my first time participating, and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to making a hat next month!

    Looking forward to the hat. Carolyn, you have such an eye for fabric, and the one you made your son is awesome. Can't imagine it being LA quilted by you as well for him. How awesome is that. Thanks for all you do. God bless.

    Anyhow, here is a photo of my weekend project. I call this one "Heart of the Flame" because the center or heart of a flame is blue/white. And my son is the center of my heart. This one is for his birthday. I will be quilting it with a flame pantograph in variegated blue threads to keep with the theme.

    Have a project picked out for next month already thinking of doing a reversable washable hat! That way we can all go spend time outside in style and safety! keep that in mind for when you are shopping this month. It just calls for cotton fabric and some heavy interfacing.

    Everyone's totes look great. I kept popping in while at work wishing I was at home sewing!!! I'm hoping to start mine next weekend after I finish a baby quilt for a co-worker. Looking forward to joining you for the next one in May. Carolyn, your quilt is beautiful, love the diamond pattern and the color (blue is my favorite color). Thank you for sending me the PDF's for the past retreats. Marilyn

    Beautiful results folks!
    Mine has been put on hold as I started a quilt for a friend injured in the fertilizer plant explosion. Many, many stitches from removing shards of glass but she's doing well.

    Tracy, I like your back and the extra touches you used.

    Mine is getting closer to being done.

    Okay, just found this thread tonight and read all 14 pages. Not one single person said that they could not open this document. When I try it asks for a password and I do not know a password for google, so unless someone could email me this PDF I will not be able to do this lovely tote. Can some one help me out?? I just love this idea and will watch for the next one!!

    Maggie Sue: Be sure and post pictures. We love to look.

    I don't know if you knew but Carolyn has hosted two other projects. One is a bath mat and the other is a braided table runner. Both were marvelous projects and a lot of fun to do. She is hosting another in May, the project will be a hat.

    Dotty, the virtual retreat weekend is over.... however, feel free to download the pattern and make it up anytime All I ask is you post photos of the finished project, cause I love seeing them!

    Maggie, glad that you were able to download the pattern, if anything happens like that again, just PM me and I will get it to you.

    May's project is a sun hat going to pick up some outdoor fabric and interfacing this weekend, and hopefully get a sample whipped up. I will start a thread for that specifically, Generally I start them with "Virtual Quilt Retreat - Month" so you should be able to find it that way.

    I don't get to the city often and there are no fabric stores (except Walmart) in this area. What do you mean by "outdoor" fabric? I'll be going into town next week and can pick some up. Thanks.
