These are a couple of the project I made (start to finish) at the retreat this weekend. It is really nice to have a focussed time to sew, with other people to chat with and projects to see. Very different from shutting myself up in my sewing room for a weekend.
The Christmas tree is, of course, a Christmas wall hanging. I started with the center panel, and wanted to add some borders to make it a bit bigger (and more interesting). The top and bottom borders were part of the panel. The rest of pieces are 4.5" star blocks I made. There is a light kit for this quilt which I have - so I just have to figure out how to attach them and then how to quilt it without sewing over the electrical wires.
One other benefit of this weekend is for my stash report. 2 finished quilts used 2 1/4 and 7 yards respectively. That bring my stash usage for this year up to a very respectable 228 1/4 yards out.
Drop by Judy's blog to see more stash reports today.
There was lot more activity at the quilt retreat, and I'll have more to say about that later this week, once I get some projects unpacked.
