Retreat Time!

Retreat weekend with no internet :(  Finally got connected so I thought I'd share some photos of what I've been up to.

First, I finished my Reflections of the North top.  Only 3 years or so in the making :)  I finished the center at my last retreat, then looked at the border instructions (218 half-square triangles) and put it away.  So, it was project number one at this weekend's retreat.  I finished the borders, and the quilt is now ready to go searching for backing.

Then, I pulled out my paper piecing project.  Downtown has been in progress for some time, and it consists of paper pieced houses (24) and stars (13). However, I was never too fond of the layout, even when I first started the project.  So I decided that it will be two quilts - one with 12 stars (yay, one less star to make :) ) and one with 24 houses.

Both tops are almost done now, so I should be able to call this a successful completion by the end of the weekend.

  1. The border on Reflections was a lot of work, but worth the effort.
