Retreat Joy

I spent last weekend at a quilt retreat, and had a fabulous time!  So much going on that I had no time for blogging (not to mention that I can't blog from my phone).  But I'm back now, my visitors have left, and I plan to buckle down and get back to quilting.  To start things off, I won a block draw at the retreat!  This means that 39 people made blocks, and names were placed in a hat.

My name was drawn for the first prize - 30 blocks, plus all the bits to finish the quilt (pre-cut applique, borders, backing, binding, batting - the whole shebang).  The other 9 blocks went to a second winner, along with all the bits to finish a wall hanging. I finished up my
quilt top at the retreat, so everyone could see what their blocks became.

Now the challenge is to see if I can get it quilted before the next guild meeting. I suspect it might not make it, but maybe the January meeting.
