Quilt Retreat

Hello!  I have been having to travel out of town everyday for work lately, so really everything else just suffers. 

The weekend of February 19th I was so excited to get a last minute spot on a quilt retreat.  It had been a while since I had gone on one, and my husband and I BOTH agreed I needed it!  

So I did get Hailey's quilt completed:

It turned out great.  I need to get it in to the quilters now so she can enjoy some snuggle time with it before summer gets here.

I also through together this wall hanging for valentines day.  I will either hand quilt this one or do some basic machine quilting on it on my machine.  It was fun and easy to put together once all the cutting was done.

I have been meaning to make a valentines day wall hanging for years and finally go it done!

This picture did not turn out so good due to poor lighting in the area where the design wall was.  This is a quilt for our bed!  I have been quilting for about 18 or 19 years now (wow) and am FINALLY getting around to making a quilt for MY bed!  I know, right?!?!?

This is half of the center section.  Our bed is a California King, so I have a ways to go, but YAY!

The quilt retreat was at a monastery run by sisters.  It was huge and nice.  Very simple and they cooked for us.  Very simple homemade meals with homemade bread and such.  It was awesome!  

Look at this amazing, huge, rosary that hung on the hallway wall outside my room.  It is beautiful.  Some of the beads were worn like someone actually used it at one time.

Well, next weekend is the Saturday sew day for March.  I'm excited to keep working on MY quilt.  Hopefully I'll get some better pictures.  Those flying geese blocks take a little time.

Keep Sewing!
