Retreat #4

My friend, Sandy and I were planning on bringing a Jelly Roll to try the quilt that I had seen featured here. When we started to sew it, we realized that we had brought the same fabric..Rural Jardin by Moda. They turned out different because of how you sew the strips together....that's me on the left. I took 6 blocks to get caught up on the 12 Days of Christmas BOM.....I finished 3 of them. I just love how they are turning out....I got a lot of compliments on the fabric also.....I think I like everything that Kate Spain has designed. Here are a few pics of what everyone was working on.....really great projects.





I got the next 3 pictures in the wrong order. This is proud Liz showing off her watermelon quilt on the final morning.



Here she is on Sunday working hard to finish.....sister-in-law Dawn is working on the same quilt also.




Marys Jelly Roll Sampler quilt put together.....I have mine done with sashing, but no border yet.



We had a great time.....thank you Mary for being such a great hostess.....see you next year, same time, same place!

I have a plan to sew my Kona solids jelly roll together exactly that way...I love how the strips are connected diagonally. So many great projects in one weekend!!!
