I just got home from a retreat with some friends. We had four days of uninterrupted time to work on our various projects. I spent time on my 365 Challenge. Since I have been gone so much lately, I haven't had time to keep up with that block a day stuff. (As a matter of fact, I have only been caught up one time since the challenge started!) I got 27 more blocks completed during this retreat.
The light blocks measure 6" finished. The top left light block contains 109 pieces! The dark blocks finish at 3". If you zoom in, you can see that they also contain lots of pieces for such small blocks.
Lora Nale (who owns the retreat center) showed us a couple of her quilts. This is her "Farm Girl" quilt from the "Farm Girl Vintage" book by Lori Holt. This exact quilt isn't in there; she designed her own version adding some blocks that were not in the book.
She also showed us two Judy Niemeyer quilts pieced by Rosie Lysinger. Laura quilted each of them.
Robin finished up "tons" of UFOs--table toppers, small quilts, and table runners.
Debbie and Jane made quilts with similar colors.
Jane finished a table runner and got a wall hanging pieced.
Vicky finished a t-shirt quilt, a pieced quilt top, and a wall hanging.
Neva worked on a baby/toddler quilt and a jacket.
I don't have pictures of Janet's work, but she made GREAT progress on a BIG quilt. I think she got all her blocks made and started putting the rows together.
The retreat was great fun, and I'm SO happy I had a chance to work on my blocks. (I'm STILL behind, though.) I have two days to regroup and head to another retreat. I'm a lucky gal!
