What do you get when you mix a room full of 29 quilters, boxes, bins and bags of scraps and a pot luck dinner?
A great retreat day of sewing!
our workshop was planned to begin at noon after the monthly guild meeting, and we sewed all the way until nearly 7pm when we were promptly kicked out by the boy scouts who had their own meeting after we were done.
If it weren’t for the boy scouts we would probably still be there sewing!
It was a great day of improv piecing combined with some siple house blocks turned on the tilt.
What were we making?
Love Shack! What’s not to love?
Made all of the better by the scraps at the free scrap table!
It’s always more fun to sew with someone else’s fabric, right?
Friends that sew together stay together!
And we had such a great time!
Hooray for small wonky blocks!
This room came complete with two pillars in the middle. And the power plugs are at the base of the pillars….so this was an ingenious way of arranging tables so that everyone could reach the power source….and it kept the cords all coralled on the inside so no one was tripping on them on the outside.
Oh so much fun!
It doesn’t get much better than this!

Last night – uhh…by the time I got back to my room it was after 7 and I was in bed by 9. No sewing happened, just a bit of pressing. Long long long day!
And today we do it all again with 36 quilters in a Talkin’ Turkey workshop ---more strings, more scraps, MORE FUN!
Have a great Friday!!
