    What I got done at Retreat!

    I was at a wonderful retreat a few weeks ago. I always take easy things , ie already pieced blocks or easy blocks, because the fun factor is huge at guild. These are the two I finished piecing.

    Both are very nice. Love all the triangles, something I'm not very good at.

    Sounds as if you have a lot of fun at retreats. The results are wonderful. I have never seen the pattern for the first quilt. It is a very handsome quilt; I like the color combination. Nice work!!

    I missed my sewing retreat because of my husband's dental surgery and helping out with my sister who has MS. You sure accomplished many projects. I am signing up for the next one they have! I am just a beginner and hope I won't be intimidated by the people who actually know what they are doing!

    I am going to my first retreat this week for four days. Don't know what to expect for myself, but I plan on making pillowcases and mittens, along with a double wedding ring wall hanging. You sure were successful! Nice job.

    What a great job on them both. Like that second one for when you're gathering signatures or notes for a special memory quilt. I'll have to keep that one in mind (haven't figured out bookmarking yet - lol) and the trees are fun! Oh my!

    Love them both ... but especially love the signature quilt. Was that from all attending the retreat or a swap? It is just beautiful.

    Where am I? And what am I doing in this handbasket?

    Both are very nice, I especially like the signature one. I agree, the retreats are a lot of fun. I am going on a 3 day one in 2 weeks, can't wait.

    Can anyone help me here? I downloaded this pattern but all I got is a picture w/o directions. This is the 2nd "free" pattern downloaded in as many days, same result both times. Am I doing something wrong or is a picture of the finished quilt IT?? Sorry, Im still new-w-w. I should say, I love your quilts, great work & I bet lots of fun!
