National Quilting Day ~ March 19, 2011

For National Quilting day, I took a picture of my new puppy wrapped up in her quilt.. She sure loves her quilt..
Then planned on quilting, until I remember the guild's newsletter..

I never did get to real quilting until the NEXT day.. Funny how some things worked out, but I was able to still work on items that had to do with quilting on that day.. :)

Guild BOTM for April & May 2011 Drawing

In honor of our Quilt Show coming up in July.. I have Done two sets for April and May's drawing..

For April.....

Guild BOTM for the March 2011 Drawing

For the March block of the month drawing, I have a Bumble Bee, and a Magnolia bud..

Things that I did at the Quilter's Retreat...

The first thing that I made was a Thread Catcher. Since I forgot mine at home!
But, it was a project I wanted to finish while I was there anyway. It just ended up being first...

The pattern it was made from was this:

Then, I moved on to my Lassie Wittman No Topple Tote Bag

This is one fabulous bag!!

The next day, I was able to assemble my presentation blocks that I received back.

There is one thing I learned from this.. Everyone has their own quarter inch.. :)

Then there was the victorian needle case I was doing, until.. that one horrible moment, that I messed it all up. Maryann had me put it in a bag, and she labeled it.. "Crap in a bag!" LOL

I am totally looking forward to it next year.. :)

Here was my workspace.

and here was my view..

The food was wonderful.. and the people were fabulous!!!


I just noticed, I haven't posted a blog since I have been back from the quilting retreat with the great people from our guild... A great time was had by all.. :)

Pictures!! :)
