Just Returned

It has been a long time since I have posted.  I just returned from East Texas where I attended my first quilting retreat of 2010.  It was snowy but we had a great time sewing. 

Just outside the retreat center there is a magnificent tree and it was picture perfect covered with snow.

While there I finally finished this quilt designed by Blackbird Designs.

At the bottom I will add the year or my initials.  I am still debating – what do you think I should add?

Another highlight of the retreat was the reveal of our round robin quilts that we have been working on for two years.  There were 6 of us doing these and we had not seen them since we passed our centers to the first person.  This is my quilt

The others can be seen in this album.  I thought that each one was beautiful and showed the creativity of all of the ladies.

 

Some of us are also working on “Border Robins” where we do our own sewing/designing and reveal them at each retreat.  I will show those at a later time.

I guess that is it for today.

Until next time

All I can say is "Wow". Your quilt is beautiful - it has obviously taken many hours to get to this point, and you finished at retreat - how fun!

I think that you should add both the year and your initials. Just love the quilt and the colours. I love it when applique and piecing is combined. Cannot wait to see it quilted. Love the RR too.
Enjoy your weekend
Cheers
