QBS Quilting Retreat 2011

Just getting back from a four day quilting retreat with my guild in Temecula, CA.

Thought I would share a few of the things I worked on.  First was this 15"x15" Valentine wall hanging, it went together pretty fast.  Once completed, I used a running stitch and embroidered the hearts on.  This was made to give to as an auction item for the guild's show in October.

Second I work on the French Tablecloth.  I love the colors in this....which I think makes the quilt.

I had quite a bit of the border print left over and I noticed of of the other girls was making a runner out of border print.  With her help I made the runner and was happy to use up the fabric I had.

One of the things we did for fun at the retreat was a Jelly Roll Race, a top made of of 2 1/2" strips.  Mine is not shown in this post as most of us gave ours to Community Relations person for charity.

I also worked on my Texas Braid Pattern, I'll show you more of that at the end of the week, want to work on that a little more before I show it.

This was a FUN FUN weekend with great friends.  My favorite part of the retreat was ...of course, being with friends but also the Show and Tell part, I love to seeing the work of others, we have amazing talent in our guild for sure.

Keep on quilting,
