    What DD and I accomplished at our weekend retreat

    Every year my DD and I attend a weekend retreat with a patchwork group and every year we try and come up with a project that will keep us going all weekend.

    The week before we left I spent 3 days cutting the entire quilt and we spent 2 and a half days at retreat piecing the top. Then on Thursday I quilted it at our LQS on her longarm.

    The pattern is Butterflies are Free by Pam Bono and is King Size 104 inches square

    From start to finish it took 3 weeks

    Thank you for looking

    Your quilt is gorgeous! Love the design and the colors. Since you shared the piecing, who gets the quilt?

    MiraB ... another outstanding quilt! The colours/fabrics chosen are a great combo. It will look ever so lovely on "your" bed, with the simpler top design and the large butterflies flying around amidst the flowers Congratulations to you two, for seeing it thru to the completion so quickly following the retreat!

    Hahahaha this one is for DD, but seeing as how it came home with me, I may just try it out on my bed for a couple of weeks. I will visit DD in a fortnight and she gets to put it on her new bed..
