We had oodles of great food (and are now in the process of sharing all our recipes), had lots of fun and interesting conversations, watched a great movie, and we sewed - and sewed - and sewed... then sewed some more - with lots of laughter thrown in, of course!
And here are the projects that I worked on...
Next up is a little AAQI quilt. My regular readers will remember that I made a personal commitment to make and donate a matching mini AAQI quilt each time I sold a quilt in my Etsy Shop. I sold two quilts in November and I thought that Retreat would be the perfect place to work on these mini quilts. This first one is made with Tula Pink's Neptune collection.
And here is a picture of the original quilt that was sold.
And this is the second mini-quilt, made with Bunny Hill's Puttin' On The Ritz fabrics, in gray and cream. I like how the words "Baby" and "Dream" appear in some of the cream squares. That was lucky, because I have absolutely none of this cream fabric left - only scraps of the gray - it was close!
And here is the quilt that inspired it.
Last up is yet MORE blocks made using Tula Pink's Neptune fabrics. I've made two quilts, a huge patchwork duffle bag, several purses, the mini quilt above, and other little odds and ends with this fabric and I still have lots MORE! I still love it though, so I'm sure I'll keep on using it.
So that's it for my trip report. Now I have to unpack all my sewing stuff and settle back in to my Cotton Cellar to get some work done. And I don't care how much work is involved - retreat was FANTASTIC!
Edited to add: Thanks for all your recipe suggestions! They all sounded great. I finally settled on two recipes I found on Pinterest - an egg, sausage & cheese casserole, and a yummie fruit salad.
