Retreat Day 1 Report
Once the colour challenge was complete, I focused on more blocks for this quilt. I put together another 20 star blocks after dinner. Next up - purple strings.
It appears that my theme for this retreat is going to be "not enough fabric". After running out of the colour challenge, I realized that I do not have all the parts needed for this quilt either. I am missing a large number of black 2.5" squares for the star blocks. And I am positive that I will not have enough purple strings to make all the required string blocks. I'll take this as far as I can, and hopefully get the blocks I do make put together in to a top. Then when I get home I can decide whether it wants to be bigger.
Day one is done, and I am on my way to bed. Still riding the adreneline high from my first retreat, so sleep may not be so easy to find tonight.
